When you’re looking for a needle in the haystack, the last thing you want is more hay. Yet plenty of recruiters skew to the side of quantity over quality. Cowen Partners takes the opposite track: following a process that delivers stand-out candidates for your executive and leadership positions.
We know the hiring process from all sides.
We’ve seen every aspect of the hiring process as managers, business owners and sales leaders. Today, we support executive leaders in the pursuit of exceptional talent.

Recruiting is not glamorous.
It’s about constantly building a network of qualified candidates, and doing the behind-the-scenes work necessary to identify and connect experts with experts.
Cowen Partners values the hands-on nature of recruiting.
It’s how we maintain a deep well of talent to draw from, and help organizations fill leadership positions quickly and precisely.
After all, an empty seat in your org chart can create a leadership vacuum and uncertainty that prevents you from meeting strategic goals. Our job is to manage this process so you can focus on everything else on your plate.
You are our client.
We get to know your organization’s needs, often with a brief phone call or email. We focus on maximizing your time so you don’t get bogged down in the process. We talk about the job title, salary expectations, perks, timing and the “must-haves.”
We reach into our vast professional circles to match your opportunity with qualified candidates.
As we uncover what candidates are interested in, and where they are at in their careers, we follow a system of checks and balances. This teamwork is critical. One team member’s list of 20 possible candidates soon becomes a list of the top 3 or 4.
Then we continue.
We present a pool of candidates that fit certain criteria, candidates we have met on previous retained searches. In a contingent capacity, we generally work the front-end of the process, presenting candidates, leaving the assessment and selection work to the client. 90 day replacement guarantee.
On an exclusive and in an advisory capacity, we work on a limited number of engagements at one time. A systematic approach to the search process whereby we research and identify every qualified candidate in the market and present fully vetted and viable candidates. While retained, we work with you to identify, assess and select the very best possible candidate for your company. And we are engaged in all aspects of the hiring process, from defining the search through candidate integration. 1-year replacement guarantee.
