About Our Firm
Building successful companies is not easy but those who do understand the most critical first steps. DavenportMajor is a retained executive search firm and AESC Member which partners closely with our clients every day in taking these steps. Our firm was founded by Stacey Davenport and Susan Major, two global practice leaders in Life Sciences/Healthcare and Technology from AT Kearney Executive Search, who passionately believe that the highest quality search work comes from engaging closely with our clients to understand their needs, never leave a stone unturned and never settle in finding the best talent in the marketplace. We specialize in Senior Executive and Board Director recruitment for Life Sciences/Healthcare, Technology, Military/Defense and Consumer Product sectors. Each Partner in the firm brings decades of operating experience in their respective sector and importantly, we bring a worldwide rolodex of "A player" candidates to the table. Representative clients in the firm include respected Fortune 500 global organizations as well as top tier Venture Capital and Private Equity funded emerging growth clients.
Between now and shaking hands with your new executive hire, there are two roads. One can be an exhaustive process that distracts you from the job at hand. The second is DavenportMajor Executive Search, where 95 percent of our clients select their candidate of choice on the first slate of interviews and many within the first 90 days or less of an engagement with our firm and all of our placements are backed by a one year guarantee.
The Association of Executive Search Consultants (AESC) represents the only recognized seal of quality for retained executive search consulting firms on a worldwide basis. AESC Members subscribe to a strict Code of Ethics and Professional Practice Guidelines affecting all aspects of executive search, including relationships with clients and candidates. The AESC is the official body for the profession and firms are only admitted to membership following a stringent application process including references from clients and search industry colleagues, as well as site inspections and close analysis of documentation and working practices.
DavenportMajor is proud to be a recognized member of the AESC. For more information, visit the AESC at www.aesc.org.
