Working with Vertical Elevation means working with dedicated experts in their field.


Retained Executive Search

Vertical Elevation is a boutique firm built upon almost three decades of search experience as well as the evaluation and implementation of best practices that add value to the client’s talent acquisition needs.

We have deep experience performing national and international searches for a wide range of senior-level executive positions in the High-Tech and Insurtech industries. But contrary to popular belief, retained search is not just for executive-level hires. It’s effective any time you have key hires to make; it prevents the costly drain of executives whose job it is to grow your organization; it is a collaborative partnership and a commitment to the success of your organization.

Retained search is the talent acquisition method companies turn to when they are committed to making the best hires. Our talent acquisition strategy can better and more effectively evaluate a candidate’s experience, skills, and personality by running them through a series of checkpoints. Unlike many other firms, these checkpoints include competency interviews and culture assessments before we make a submission to ensure we are only sending qualified candidates your way. Vertical Elevation is dedicated to delivering genuine value to our clients so they can tap into the possibility of their organizations and realize outstanding business results. 

We pledge to get the work done right the first time.


Recruitment Process Optimization

Recruitment Process Optimization is, in its simplest form, aligning an organization’s talent strategy with its business strategy and values. In order to achieve this, we focus on the core values of the executive management team and create a recruiting and hiring process that implements those values so they permeate through every aspect of the process, from search through on-boarding and retention. As with anything that is ultimately successful, the entire organization needs to be bought in to achieve the desired goals and this ultimately begins with the organization’s leader. At Vertical Elevation we believe the same is true for the recruiting and hiring process.


Vantage Point

Career Coaching 

Vertical Elevation’s proprietary career coaching solution, developed over the last 28 years, guides individuals on how to navigate a highly fluid and unpredictable employment environment. Our combined experience in career strategy, mindset coaching, and executive search grant us the insights needed to plan and analyze for every client regardless of their goals or industry. 

There’s an old Chinese proverb that says, “The best time to plant an oak tree was 20 years ago. The second-best time is now.” So it’s best not to wait until you need to find a job to begin career coaching. Be proactive!

Executive One-One Coaching & Group Leadership Development

Vertical Elevation’s proprietary executive leadership coaching solution, guides individuals on how to be more successful leaders. Whether you and/or your employees are dealing with a particular situation, getting your teams and organizations through a crisis, or just want to work on some particular skills, we’re here to help. If you’re looking to take a deep dive into your professional and personal development, this highly personalized approach may be the answer. The more you’re looking to move up in business, the more critical this becomes.

We also offer group cohorts which are distinctly different than working one on one. It’s about the connection, communication, and community that comes from not just us interacting with our clients but group members interacting with each other. It’s in this space where so much “magic” happens.
