“Dartmouth Partners operate as just that: a partner. In executive search, it is easy to find those that sugarcoat candidate profiles to try to push a square peg, but Dartmouth are differentiated in digging into the company’s needs and thereby providing a candidate’s pros/cons upfront from a truly consultative approach.”
