How Did Retaindly Start?

How It Started.

With technology disrupting the industry, new competitors entering the market, increased demand for equality, diversity and privacy and a shift in client expectations - how can executive search firms and executive recruiters remain competitive and top of mind?

Over the last 10 years, we have watched as executive search firms and executive recruiters approached marketing and lead generation as an inconsistent stop and go practice with a patchwork of initiatives, only to yield little to no results. This erratic push and pull and fragmented approach isn't a strategy.

A real marketing strategy for executive search firms and executive recruiters is a full life cycle that engages and targets prospects with the right marketing messages in the right places - all with the underlying goal to win more search work.

How We Got Here.
