Five Firms Partner to Provide Unparalleled Access to the Best Talent on the Planet

Boston, Mass., October 20, 2010
 –Polachi, a provider of Access Executive Search™ services to technology, clean technology/energy, private equity and venture capital companies, attended the annual Access Search Partners™(ASP) conference in London, England September 23-24. ASP is the largest technology and clean tech/energy search partnership in the world with over 80 full-time team members, twelve global offices and over 3,000 successfully completed executive searches.  As a global network, ASP is able to deliver the constant partner-level attention and personal service found at smaller independent firms.

The firms, including Polachi in Boston, Schweichler Price & Partners in Silicon Valley, Stonewood Group in Canada,Braithwaite Steiner Pretty in Asia, and Gillamor Stephens in the UK, came together for the annual conference September 23-24, at the offices of Gillamor Stephens in London, England. Eighteen consultants from these global firms developed a new framework for sharing candidate information to help clients quickly close searches with high quality candidates.

The focus of the conference was on how to improve collaboration between these five firms to better serve their clients and to develop enhanced access into each other’s databases.  The firms also discussed the impact of social media – LinkedIn, Facebook, etc. – and how it can be used successfully in the search business.  Each firm shared their best practices in search for others to evaluate and possibly adopt as a new technique.

Nancy Garrison Jenn, author, consultant and global authority on headhunters, met with the group and discussed what clients are looking for in a search firm and how ASP can better serve clients in a competitive search landscape. Nancy pointed out that ASP has tremendous potential for growth as it is the only global search firm focused exclusively on technology and clean tech/energy.  Colin Tenwick, CEO and Founder of the CT Partnership Ltd in the UK, also met with the group.  Tenwick spoke about entrepreneurship in Europe.

According to Charley Polachi, Founding Partner of Polachi, “This year’s conference was extremely helpful and productive. When these five firms come together, it creates a unique environment where we can all learn from each other and collaborate on techniques that promote the most effective executive searches.  The conference always opens up a constructive discussion on how to improve and best serve our clients.”
