Why We Exist
Steve Garman, the President of Garman Partners started out of college in the world of contingent search, then moved on to be a Director at Fortune 500 firm developing and leading an Internal Executive Search Firm. He noticed a disconnect between search firms and companies – neither side really understood the other, and they almost always seemed at odds. Contingent firms had become paper slingers and hustlers. They had lost the trust of companies.
Garman Partners was started to blow up this model of customer – vendor – candidate. Instead, we deliver a retained search model and results on a contingent search budget. It’s flexible, works with our clients’ processes, is honest and transparent, and produces superior results.
One search and consulting agreement at a time, Garman Partners strives to provide a proven ROI, be brutally honest, and be a partner rather than a vendor. “Partners” in Garman Partners isn’t a noun – it’s verb.
