How We Find Leaders

While our track record is likely at the top of the list of reasons for Herbert Mines' reputation among business leaders, we believe our success is inextricably linked to three relationship dynamics we have intentionally cultivated and nurtured over 30+ years in the retained executive search business.

One of the things I appreciate most about Herbert Mines Associates is the cultural DNA of our firm. Beyond its role in shaping a top-notch executive search firm, the fact that we have a unique culture at the firm translates into a critical benefit for our clients.
