Shepherd Search Group® has grown organically and through acquisition. This two-pronged approach has helped us to quadruple the size of our business over the last four years. Today you’ll find us in major economic hubs such as Charlotte, London, Miami, New York, Philadelphia, San Diego and some smaller economic hubs such as Lexington (KY), Palm Beach (FL) and Morgantown (WV). Under our umbrella are leaders in:

Over the next twenty-four months we intend to announce a couple of other niche leaders that will be joining our firm in order to ensure their continued growth along with our industry leading service, accountability, and speed-to-market. Combine this with the very best infrastructure, database managers and search optimization methods and you’ve got the recipe.

If you own an executive search firm or a contract/interim staffing agency you owe it to yourself to explore Shepherd Search Group. In a nutshell, we are looking to acquire small to mid-sized executive search, recruitment and contract staffing firms in the United States, Canada and around the globe where we can have a controlling interest. We’re not interested in whether you are a “mom and pop” or a well-established human capital provider. We’re looking for those firms that “own their space.”  The niche players, the specialists, the trendsetters, the leaders. If your clients call you to help them solve their staffing & HR issues, you’re the type of company we would like to meet with.

Ideally, we’re looking to partner with firms between three to thirty employees, and we love a good turnaround. Location does not matter as we already have affiliate offices around the world and Shepherd offices in North America, Europe and the Middle East.

If you are the Principal of a staffing firm looking for an exit strategy or building your own succession plan, we would invite you to give us a call. You may want to “exit stage right” and travel the world or you may want to stay on for a few years and play a role in a larger enterprise. We would welcome you to the team! Whatever your wish, we’ll let our track record speak for itself. When we make an acquisition, our goal is 100% employee retention and a double-digit increase in revenue within the first twelve months.

In the case of our most recent acquisition, we tripled revenues in the first year. In no case, have we increased sales less than 40% within one year. In summary, we’ve got a winning formula and we would like to share it with you.

Feel free to talk to our stakeholders and learn about their experiences with Shepherd Search Group®. We’ll help protect your nest egg, carry your legacy forward and we’ll do it together. For more information, call our President & CEO: David Gantshar at #845.570.4292.
