CIO Partners Recognized by Forbes as Top Recruiting Firm in America Devoted Exclusively to Technology Leadership Talent
Atlanta, GA, June 1, 2021 – For a third consecutive year, CIO Partners®, a nationally-recognized retained search firm with a niche practice in digital and technology talent, was recognized by Forbes in their annual ranking of America’s Best Executive Recruiting Firms, again topping the list for firms devoted exclusively to technology leadership talent.
According to Forbes, their 2021 list of the top 200 executive search firms specialized in filling positions with salaries of at least $100,000 is intended to take a closer look at the firms that were able to thrive in 2020 and position themselves at the front of the pack in 2021.
“Our team is honored to again be ranked first by Forbes among firms devoted exclusively to technology leadership talent,” said Joe Gross, President, CIO Partners. “Technology leadership positions require a different approach than what generalist executive search firms often offer. With our niche practice cultivated over 20 years, we are proud to assist our clients in hiring those leaders, from the C-suite to director-level.”
To compile nominations and rankings, Forbes partnered with market research company Statista to survey 31,000 recruiters and 7,200 candidates, and human resources managers who had worked with recruitment agencies. Respondents were asked to nominate up to 10 recruiting firms, and firms could not nominate themselves. More than 26,000 nominations were collected, and firms with the most recommendations ranked highest.
