Listen, Look, Leverage & Land
Brad Martin & Associates follows a consistent, proven strategy on every search engagement. Principals are involved “end-to-end” throughout the process, not just in initial efforts to secure the business. BMA believes searches are best positioned for success “on the front end.” Great effort goes in to establishing clear expectations and understanding client’s needs, expectations and goals at each stage in the search process.
In every phase of the engagement, BMA acts as a trusted partner and advisor, working hand in hand with both HR and hiring leaders to identify, attract and extract candidates who will succeed in the role and in the organization long-term. Often candidates become search clients, adding to the history of long-term relationships on which BMA was founded.
