About Us
Our Mission & Standards


Jeff Ketchum, CRA

Jeff leads and manages the firm. He originally got his start in the industry in 1989 when he was hired as the first research analyst within the offices of a national executive search firm. Several years later he rejoined the Troy, Michigan offices of the same firm, where he conducted numerous projects within the automation, automotive, consumer products, banking and manufacturing sectors. Jeff is one of 50 people in the world certified by the Association of Executive Search Consultants (AESC), an organization recognized by the United States Government and the European Commission as the representative body for the executive search industry.

The CRA designation represents evidence of the highest standards of recruitment research and adherence to the ethical canons of the profession. Less than of 1% of all search & recruitment professionals have achieved this level of performance.
