Masthead Partners founding mission is to provide a relationships-driven process to its customers in an Executive Search industry that has become increasingly transactional. With over 75 years of combined experience, Masthead Partners is dedicated to providing a white-glove approach that counters the industry dominated by large national search firms. Our Partners are accomplished and well-trained professionals with a wealth of experience completing the most critical assignments for our Manufacturing and Distribution Clients nationwide.


When working with Masthead, you receive Partner led Searches which includes executive level networking, candidate vetting, communication and process management with one goal: Delivering your targeted talent fast and efficiently.

For each assignment we partner with all key stakeholders to fully understand the needs and expectations of our customer. Our reputation for quality and precision stems from our process management focus. We serve as business partners to our customers meeting weekly to collaborate on search progress, challenges, and feedback.

Our process management focus allows us to hone in on the right candidates the first time. A long list of partially qualified candidates simply prolongs a search process. Our focus is a targeted short list of qualified and engaged executives that can move your business forward.


With Masthead Partners you can feel confident you’re working with an industry-leading executive search firm.  Focusing in the Manufacturing and Distribution industries has allowed us to develop a deep network of vetted executives and a database of over 150,000 passive and active candidates.  Manufacturing is the focal point of what we do and who we are.  The Masthead promise is to deliver forward thinking executives to your organization through a seamless and collaborative process.  This simple promise has resulted in 85% repeat business from our customers backed by a 1 year guarantee.
