Firm Profile

McCarthy Bertschy is a retained-only executive search firm that combines the national reach and Board-level presence of a large firm with the client focus and flexibility of a boutique. For over 15 years, we have served public, private, and private equity-backed companies to help them recruit top candidates for mission-critical leadership positions.

We selectively conduct 30 to 40 client engagements nationwide per year. With headquarters in Chicago, we conduct searches nationally, with a proven track record of successful assignments in the nation's largest metro areas and in cities that are off the beaten path.

We have a passion for our work, a relentless focus on successful search completion, and an approach that applies the highest levels of professionalism to our interactions with clients as well as candidates.

During the search process, we work closely with our clients every step of the way, from development of the position profile to structuring the final offer. We know what it takes to identify and cultivate C-Level executives. We also help candidates honestly assess whether they are a fit for the roles they are considering, ensuring they are treated professionally and completely satisfied with the search process.
