Atlanta, GA, June 1, 2020 – CIO Partners®, a nationally-recognized retained search firm with a niche practice in digital and technology talent, was recognized today for a second time in two years by Forbes in their annual ranking of America’s Best Executive Recruiting Firms – the top 200 executive search firms specialized in filling positions with salaries of at least $100,000. At an overall rank of 39, CIO Partners tops the list for executive search firms devoted exclusively to technology leadership talent.
According to Forbes, the 2020 list is intended to assist employers in determining which recruiting firms they can trust to partner in their searches, where the decision on who to hire for a key role has never been a more pressing question.
“To be named by Forbes as one of America’s best executive recruiting firms for a second year in a row is a testament our team’s drive for excellence and focus on our client and candidate relationships,” said Joe Gross, President, CIO Partners. “Our team’s commitment and success is underscored by the fact that this recognition is based on nominations by employer organizations, candidates – and even other recruiting firms.”
To compile nominations and rankings, Forbes partnered with market research company Statista to survey 25,000 recruiters and 5,000 job candidates and human resources managers who had worked with recruitment agencies over the last three years. Respondents were asked to nominate up to 10 recruiting firms in the executive and professional search categories. More than 17,000 nominations were collected though firms could not nominate themselves. Firms with the most recommendations ranked highest.
