After receiving a plethora of inbound requests for a quick reference guide of top Ad Agency Search Consultants for North America, we compiled this list of top search consultants and provided all of the information on how to reach them.
Below is the list of search and relationship optimization consultants who have conducted the majority of searches that our agency clients have either been involved in, or would have liked to been considered for.
For a little texture – view our Webcast, “Through a Search Consultants Eyes,” which covers trends, predictions and recommendations for agencies.
A few words of advice from Brent Hodgins, CEO of Mirren Business Development and the annual agency New Business Conference;
– “Be relevant and demonstrate an expertise”
– “Keep us posted on your agency news, it’s our job to know who’s doing what and how in the industry”
– “Create a profile or fill out the online forms rather than send us physical packages”
– “If you do send a package, we expect you to follow up”
And my favorite;
– “Please don’t send ‘living’ packages such as butterfly’s and flowers – if I’m out of town they’ll not have the ‘pop’ you’d hope for”.
