Gilman Partners

Firm Overview:

Gilman Partners is greater Cincinnati's premier executive and professional search and recruiting firm.  For over 30 years, we have partnered with companies to attract, assess and hire top talent for c-level and other business critical positions.  Our goal is to find candidates who fit both professional qualifications and an organization's culture so that the best candidate is hired for long-term success.  “We know people who know people.”

Services and/or Products:

Gilman Partners provides executive search and recruiting services for a variety of organizations and industries including business services, consulting services, health care, financial services, marketing, marketing research, manufacturing, legal services and non-profits. 

Our dedicated sourcing team applies innovative search strategies to find candidates; we then conduct comprehensive phone and face-to-face interviews to assess and deliver the most qualified candidates for a position.  We also use a formal behavioral assessment as part of our search process.

We break out of the traditional recruiting firm mold by taking a very consultative approach to our search and evaluation process.  With a heritage of performing with the highest level of integrity and professionalism, we work diligently and tirelessly to help clients hire the best people for long-term success.

Our consultants have served as business owners, CEOs, attorneys, Big 4 partners, and HR executives and leverage our extensive professional and personal networks in every search.
