Business partners...   Counsel... Personal...

Staub, Warmbold & Associates (SWA), a premier retained executive search firm, has served Fortune 500 corporations, small-cap and emerging growth companies, and the unique needs of private equity / venture capital firms in North America and Europe for over three decades.  SWA's business partner philosophy begins with a commitment to clients and candidates to uphold a set of standards that is ultimately measured by the firm's long-lasting relationships. A significant portion of the Firm's success comes from repeat business with our clients and through their referrals to others.

SWA understands the complexities and nuances associated with replacing and/or topgrading a senior leadership position - which can be a daunting task even for the most seasoned executive. The Firm's established Lean search process provides clarity and our active weekly communication with each Client ensures complete transparency on search assignments, including the availability of research developed as part of the search processSWA's commitment to provide clients with the highest level of client/partner accessibility is backed by actively managing the assignment load of each Partner as though they were an adjunct extension of the client company.  SWA extends this "high touch" commitment to candidates as well, maintaining the highest degree of professionalism and transparency. The Firm's focus on quality and responsiveness is achieved through operational excellence and continuous Voice of the Customer (VOC) practices that set SWA apart in the search business.

Staub, Warmbold & Associates is headquartered in New York City.  Our capabilities to serve client needs extend to Canada, UK and Europe. Strategically, SWA will remain a private, mid-market boutique retained executive search firm with a focus on client engagement and a passion to operate with speed and agility. 


The combination of SWA's boutique scale and both multi-industry and multi-continent expertise enables wide access to candidate pools. SWA's ability to reach into broad and diverse candidate pools within a client company's industry/competitor base is typically unrestricted, whereas with larger search firms there is a greater likelihood for off-limits agreements to limit candidate pools. 

SWA maintains a sharp focus on recruiting the very best senior level talent to meet our clients needs.  A candidate's technical abilities are only half of the challenge in recruiting. Getting the right style and culture match not only speeds the search process and faster post-hire assimilation and ramp-up, but ultimately leads to long-term effectiveness. SWA's commitment to invest the time required to become valued business partners to our clients - learning the nuances of individual styles and company culture - provides a basis to evaluate candidates for the right "fit".
