Human Capital – Executive Search

Nucleus Partners offers a comprehensive executive search practice for its portfolio companies and other selected firms.  Led by industry search veterans, the executive search practice utilizes the Nuclear Process to identify, find and retain executives for emerging and growth challenged companies.  The Nuclear Process sets us apart from other firms.  We integrate our search process with a complete set of proven resources and with years of operating experience represented by our Entrepreneur Partners and our search experience while with industry giants like Spencer Stuart and Heidrick and Struggles.  We recognize that Human Capital is the firm foundation of any company.  Our goal is to identify the right people who can contribute best to the company we serve in its acceleration of growth, maturity, value and leadership.

Position Statement

For emerging and high growth companies alike, identifying and finding the right people is the most important task facing senior management teams and/or its board.  Most companies do not have the capability to do this on their own, lacking the personal network and the appropriate resources to identify and attract key industry individuals.  In addition, each of these companies frequently have clearly defined cultures, requiring specific experience, communication skills and personal “fit”.  This human capital support gap needs to be filled by search executives who can identify and support the attraction of key individuals.

Practice Overview

Our search consultants marry their significant industry and operational experience with the position and industry for which they are doing a search.  This sets Nucleus apart from the majority of other search firms!  There is little that is more important than “having been there, done that,” in finding and evaluating the “right” person for a specific challenge and position.

Coupled with our proven Nuclear Process, our functional, operational and industry experience, our executive search experience and our 100% success rate (placements to assignments), we provide the following:

  • Huge Database
    Over 20 million executives are available to us through an extensive industry focused database, which allows us to hone in on “the” candidates who meet your specification.

  • Powerful Contact Management System
    Rivaling any contact management system available today, private or public, our system allows us immediate access to any and all prospective candidates and current candidates along with their complete contact history and immediately available contact information.

  • Our search consultants have stayed the course, no matter how long it takes to successfully fulfill an assignment for which we have been retained.  Our placement success is 100% to date, both at Nucleus and at our previous firms.

  • Our search consultants and entrepreneurial partners work hand in hand to couple search experience and industry/operational/functional experience.  We stand apart in this regard from most other national or boutique search firms.

  • Our search consultants and Entrepreneurial Partners have strong international search experience and equally strong operational experience, all of which speaks to our understanding of the needs of both emerging and established companies who desire to establish and/or maintain a national and international presence for their companies.  We understand the needs, the challenges and, most importantly, the differences in world wide business processes.

In summary, our search consultants, our Entrepreneurial Partners, our process, our experience – industry and operational - and our history of success, speaks to the success that will be yours as a Nucleus Partners’ client.
