J.C. Wilson Associates was founded in mid-2002
as a boutique executive search firm specializing in the recruitment
of Chief Financial Officers and those positions typically reporting
directly to the CFO, as well as senior executives in the Financial
Services industry. The latter includes commercial banks, investment
banks, asset managers, brokerages and non-bank financial institutions.
We distinguish ourselves from other recruiting firms by our specialist
industry/functional expertise, and by the best practices which we
use to conduct each search.
Complete client satisfaction is our focus and objective. We will
focus intently on your needs and on quickly filling that senior
financial position with the best candidate available. We will help
you to build the strongest team possible with optimal organizational
VS. GENERALIST KNOWLEDGE
Our specialist insight into the world of finance professionals gives
us the ability to quickly screen potential candidates more efficiently.
Through superior industry knowledge and functional expertise, our
objective is to present and recruit excellent candidates rather
than just suitable candidates.
In larger search firms with numerous clients across the country,
there are prohibitive “off-limits” restrictions placed
on where your ideal candidate can be found. This limited access
to many of the best companies will impede your ability to recruit
many candidates with the best credentials and qualifications. J.C.
Wilson Associates will provide you with virtually unlimited access
to the target companies with the best talent. We believe this is
a major advantage for our clients.
From the first week of the search, you will receive regular progress
reports. We believe there is no substitute for frequent and focused
communication with the client. Honesty in our dialogue and candidate
assessments makes the entire process direct, more effective and
as results-oriented as possible.
There are no speed limits for recruiting “cycle time.”
In fact, there is an opportunity cost for not having a senior executive
in place. If you are looking to build or upgrade your executive
team, time is of the essence. We will apply maximum resources to
your search and will not stop until the successful candidate is
in place. We know the importance of a quick turnaround, and live
by that model. Speed is yet another benefit of a small and focused
search team committed to your success.
We are as committed to the success of your organization as you are.
