Victory Search Group engagements are characterized by a close relationship with our clients, yielding a deep understanding of the organization’s culture and the needs for the position, and clear and responsive expectations for all involved in the process. Our clients repeatedly choose Victory Search Group for several important reasons:

NATIONAL PRESENCE. As is typical of exceptional boutique search firms, at VSG, we deliver personal service and direct partner involvement to every assignment. However, unlike other search firms, we go one step further by successfully leveraging geographic breadth and scale from five regional offices.
COMMUNICATION. We keep both clients and candidates well informed throughout the search process. We provide formal weekly status reports which include market feedback and candidate development updates.
LASTING RELATIONSHIPS. Our clients depend on us as a long-term strategic partner and return to us year after year and search after search. Our goal is to surpass our clients’ expectations by adding value in every phase of the recruiting process and beyond.
FOCUS. We know our clients are best served when they receive our undivided focus and personal attention; as a result we accept only a few search engagement at one time.
FEW OFF-LIMITS. As a boutique firm, our client base is smaller, so by design we have fewer “off-limits” arrangements. This allows us to recruit passive, qualified candidates from most target organizations.
FLEXIBILITY. We’ll tailor our proven search process to meet your unique needs.
Collaboration throughout the process assures client energies are focused on tasks where the greatest value can be added—defining the position, calibrating our work, interviewing, and choosing the successful candidate. And our support extends beyond the engagement, as counsel to both the client and the recruited candidate through the transition and permanent placement.

Vice President/General Manager | $400 million consumer company
"Victory Search Group brings both a business orientation as well as an understanding and appreciation for the mission clients expect from serious candidates…We needed an Executive Director who would make sure our growth plans were appropriately budgeted, that performance was tracked, and mid-period corrections made to revenue and expense projections—while not losing focus on accomplishing the philanthropic objectives of our supporters…VSG got this, targeted and screened candidates for these skills, and cultivated the qualified prospects for our leadership role…A great outcome: we’ve already used them for another search."
Chair of the Search Committee | Southwestern human services nonprofit
"I have been impressed with VSG first as a candidate and later when I hired them to add senior leaders to my team. As a candidate, they displayed a unique level of thoroughness balanced with empathy for the candidate experience, a rare combination that gave me a favorable impression of the hiring company. As a client, VSG was highly engaged and demonstrated a comprehensive understanding of our business and culture which jumpstarted the search process. With their guidance, we hired several talented leaders that are adding value at the company today."
Early in 2010, we were retained by the board of Blue Diamond to recruit their new CEO. We successfully recruited Mark Jansen who joined in October 2010. Since that time we have completed nine additional searches for Blue Diamond including: CFO, VP Human Resources, VP Finance, GM Supply Chain, Director of Procurement, Director of Marketing, General Manager Global Manufacturing, Director of Sales and Director of Research and Development. We are honored and proud to represent Blue Diamond as we recruit talented leaders to continue their success and track record of sustainable growth. Given Blue Diamond’s location in Sacramento, California, all successful candidates relocated from a variety of locations.
