— Russell Stephens is about Selection —

While we put a premium on the most scientific means for developing professional, social, and inferential databases for our search assignments, it always comes down to selection of the very best candidates. We have nearly four decades of experience behind our uniquely successful approach to the selection process. The founding principles of our business are built on attention to detail, a high sense of urgency, clear and accurate communication, and the strength of character to offer an informed professional opinion.
