Who We Are
Matchmakers at heart, we wake up every day inspired and energized, ready to pair great organizations with exceptional leaders. Our principals, Greg Rokos and Mark Lukacs, share well over twenty-five years of experience in the healthcare executive search industry.
What We Believe
We believe a partnership built on trust and candid communication is critical to achieving a successful outcome and a mutually beneficial, ongoing relationship. We commit to being 100 percent transparent, professional, trustworthy and responsive. We deliver the highest quality of service and do not delegate any of our recruitment processes to junior associates. Our principals personally handle all aspects of the search, from client communication to candidate sourcing, interviews, and placements. As we collaborate with you and your team, we strive to exceed your expectations with the goal of building a long-lasting relationship.
We apply both time-tested methodology and the latest in video technology for a contemporary approach to the process of search and placement. This rich use of media brings to life the everyday resume or job description by enabling clients and candidates to tell a more meaningful story, differentiating opportunities and specifications in the marketplace.
To achieve success, we invest a considerable amount of time and energy at the beginning of a search to obtain a thorough understanding of our clients and their goals. Familiarity with our clients' history, present structure, and future plans expedites the identification and recruitment of the highest quality candidates. This comprehensive knowledge allows us to accurately represent our clients’ opportunities and enables us to find the best candidate for the job.
