Our Firm

HISTORY
Established in 1984, The Hawkins Company is a management consulting firm specializing in executive recruitment. While recognized  for our expertise in diversity recruiting, we are a general practice executive search firm that focuses on achieving the executive level staffing objectives of private, public, educational and non-profit clients with a commitment to recruiting “best in class” diverse leadership talent.

In the early years, The Hawkins Company focused exclusively on private sector recruiting. As our reputation grew, we were requested to conduct searches for government agencies. Within a few years, we became nationally recognized for our ability to apply private sector search strategies to meet the recruitment needs of public sector clients. Today we have broadened our client base to include educational institutions and non-profit organizations.

The Hawkins Company has been instrumental in assisting clients recruit and select strong and effective leaders.  Included are over 700 national, regional and local executive searches for CEO’s, COO’s, CAO’s, CFO’s and other officers, directors, senior managers and professional staff.  Over seventy percent (70%) of our searches are national in scope and our placement rate exceeds ninety percent (90%).
