Finding Great Leaders

When people fit, they reveal their greatness. And that’s what compels us.

We’re no ordinary executive search firm.

Since inception (more than two decades ago), we have been shaking things up in the world of executive search, frequently being the only female-led global search boutique amongst our peers.

With our team of partners and associates throughout the US, and industry expertise in several verticals, Jack Hammer has helped hundreds of companies, NPOs and high-growth VC-backed start-ups to build and diversify their leadership teams and Boards.

We do this by finding the balance between performing to win and building connection; challenging the status quo and keeping it real. Always digging deep and looking beyond the obvious.

That’s why we’re called Jack Hammer.

Executive search

Great leaders are hard to find. So we look beyond the obvious – sometimes in unlikely places – drilling deep from start to finish. We give you a honed set of choices that fit your business, and help you navigate the process of selecting and appointing the right one.

Market mapping

With market maps, we help you make some of your best and most informed decisions. Market Mapping (also called ‘Talent Mapping’) provides assurance on important business (and people) decisions, by giving you data and insights.

Non-Executive Directors

We offer a blend of search and networking, providing you with a longlist, and helping you appoint non-executive directors who enrich strategy, support and challenge the executive.

We’re clear about our purpose – finding leaders who grow great companies. Because when people fit, they reveal their greatness, and everyone thrives.
