About KeyStone Search

Our Purpose

We’re passionate about serving mid-market, privately held companies. These businesses are the heart and soul of our economy, employing almost 50% of all employees in the United States. It’s exciting for us to play a part in the growth and success of these great companies.

KeyStone Core Values

Help First

Our number one priority is to provide value in every interaction with our clients, potential clients, partners, candidates and referral sources. If we help them achieve their goals, our growth will follow.

Do What We Say

We make strong promises regarding our abilities and deliverables. We are committed to always going the extra mile to live up to these promises. Every member of our team holds themselves personally accountable for meeting and exceeding our client’s expectations. No shortcuts. No exceptions.

Courage To Tell The Truth

At times, we have to deliver difficult messages in the best interest of our clients, potential clients, candidates and each other. Even if it may jeopardize a sale, we are committed to always being honest and forthright.

Committed To Growth

Our commitment to growth goes beyond revenue and profitability. We believe it takes growth in multiple areas to build a great company. Investing in the growth of our people, our brand and our communities are key drivers in achieving sustained growth.

Real Teamwork

We are committed to working as a true team at KeyStone. This means always putting our heads and hands together to do the very best for every client and each other. No Cowboys. No Jerks.

A Different Kind of Search Firm

At KeyStone, we have never considered ourselves a company that just fills jobs. We help our clients grow their businesses by finding them the right executive-level talent. This mentality drives everything we do and it’s why the KeyStone Process is the most thorough and thoughtful in the search industry.

Focused Retained Search

Great leadership is in short supply. Having a search partner that is focused on your company, your culture and your specific role is critical. This is why KeyStone will only work on a retainer basis. Doing so allows us to truly understand your business and partner with you to hire the very best fit for your future.

Other firms may claim to bring similar expertise and may promise to identify candidates faster and less expensively, via a contingency search process. When you consider the right executive for your business needs to combine strong skills, experience and alignment with your core values, the pool of fully qualified candidates becomes relatively small. Without conducting a focused and thorough retained search process, the risk of mis-hire is very high.
