Healthcare Executive Search Firms: Focus Search Partners’ 2015 Quality Outcomes Lead the Industry

Most healthcare executive search firms keep their quality outcomes private. We, Focus Search Partners continue to publish our quality results here. Actually, this is the tenth consecutive year Focus Search Partners has led all healthcare executive search firms with reporting quality outcomes.


Our Healthcare Executive Search firm is focused on meeting the need for high-quality senior executive talent in the Healthcare industry. “We are keenly aware of the increasing trend within Healthcare to effectively monitor, manage, and report on a variety of metrics pertaining to key quality outcomes” says Paul Frankenberg, Managing Partner and Founder of Focus Search Partners, LLC, a retained Healthcare executive search firm with offices in Nashville, TN, Dallas, TX and Colorado Springs, CO.

“Quality reporting is happening in more and more segments of the Healthcare industry and it will continue to deepen and expand,” reports Mr. Frankenberg. “As a result, client companies have a right to expect the same level of measurement and accountability from their healthcare executive search firm as these companies require of themselves.”

Since its inception, Focus Search Partners has been an innovator in linking a client’s business strategy to the executive search process and outcome. And, that strategy has paid off! Focus Search Partners has worked with many of the healthcare industry’s most highly regarded, healthcare venture capital and private equity firms and growth companies.

Focus Search Partners is proud to report its key quality measures and outcomes through December 31, 2015:

  • 51% of our Firm’s annual revenues are generated from repeat clients. The significant balance of our remaining revenues is from new clients referred to us by past or current clients.
  • Our clients begin interviewing qualified and interested candidates within 59 days of initiating the search.
  • Our client extends an offer within 121 days from initiating the search.
  • Our clients hire candidates we present, compared to internal candidates, on 96% of our search assignments.
  • Our clients complete their search assignments 90% of the time.
  • 30% of the individuals hired through our search are non-white males.
  • Our clients realize a 93% candidate retention rate for all newly hired executive’s first 12 months of employment.

According to Paul, “Every executive search firm has operational performance data readily available that defines their recruiting effectiveness.” However, most firms do not divulge this information to anyone outside of the inner circle. And, the reasons are obvious. Releasing detailed information that details the firm’s actual recruiting efficiency, 12-month post-placement retention rates and repeat client information could adversely impact their firm’s image and sales process.

“Quality results provide a competitive advantage, and our results demonstrate our commitment to remain one of the top performing executive search firm in terms of our ability to consistently deliver high-caliber retained executive search services to Investors, Boards and Executives throughout the Healthcare Services, Healthcare Provider and Healthcare Technology segments,” according to Mr. Frankenberg.
