Building Relationships Since 1999!


If the position you need filled is a crucial, mission-critical role within your organization then our retained search is the best way to achieve that goal. Our retained searches are quickly gaining in popularity among our clients due to their precision and effectiveness. Your retainer essentially guarantees us that we are working on a legitimate and exclusive position, so we reciprocate your exclusivity by mobilizing all of our resources and devoting them solely to your position. This allows for exponentially deeper market penetration as well as a much more comprehensive search, vetting, and interview process.


Our contingency-based fee for direct-hire placements is 20 percent of the candidate’s annual base salary. There is no charge whatsoever unless we find the right candidate for your position, and we do not invoice until the candidate actually begins working for your company. We have had tremendous success with our contingency searches due to our proprietary and streamlined recruiting process, as well as our expansive database of candidates that we have been cultivating since 1999. The chances are excellent that we already have the candidate that you seek in our database, but if not, we know how to find them!


ExecBase contractors necessitate a mark-up of 40 to 60 percent above the temporary staffer’s hourly rate depending on the nature of the position, as well as various payroll and insurance considerations. If a contractor is ultimately hired as a full-time employee (i.e., temp-to-perm) ExecBase will apply any net profits earned during the candidate’s status as a contractor, excluding costs, towards any remaining outstanding balance of the total contingency-based placement fee of 20 percent of the annual base salary offered/accepted at time of conversion.
