Our Process

We find leaders who will deliver business results today and into the future.

In today’s business world, the one thing we can count on is change. This requires executives who are nimble and capable of delivering results today while teeing up their organizations to define and/or seize what is next.

Given the needs of today’s and tomorrow’s leaders, ML Search Partners continues to evolve our process to ensure that we are identifying and placing the very best talent.


Network: Most search firms call on an impressive network of senior management contacts based on years of recruiting experience. We go well beyond that. In this converged world of technology, media and entertainment where boundaries have become blurred we too tap into our network of contacts but also look beyond the known and source executives from a wide array of environments.

Future Performance: While we create a complete candidate profile in determining what they have done and how they did it, we probe on “what if” scenarios where we delve and project a candidate’s ability to adapt to an ever-changing environment – one with rapidly evolving technology, new business models, increasing content delivery systems, and audience demands. We find the leaders who will embrace the turmoil and drive results.

Cultural Fit: As most hiring executives have discovered, having the right resume is just not enough. We transcend what is on paper to find the leaders who will not only perform but who have the right DNA to succeed in your organization.

On Boarding: We work with our clients to ensure a smooth on-boarding process including a thorough understanding of reporting structure, roles and responsibilities and short and long term objectives. It is a final step to assure we have created a partnership that works for the candidate, the hiring executive and the organization.
