About Us

Delivering high quality candidates quickly is the hallmark of our success. With decades of executive recruitment experience working for Fortune 500 companies, as well as small-medium sized businesses, you are in excellent hands. The two areas we focus on are Professional Search and our uniquely designed Short List service.

Turning Recruitment Upside Down

Most companies invest a lot of time and money looking for the right candidate. Some use expensive search firms, while others “post and pray”. Why isn’t there a more cost-effective, faster way to hire? There is. Introducing TAG’s Short List service.

Short List

We have taken the core of our Professional Search service and condensed it to provide our clients with a shorter and more affordable option, while still providing exceptional quality candidates.

Professional Search

For searches that require a more consultative approach, in which a traditional full-service recruitment model is needed, we offer our Professional Search.

Let TAG help you determine which service best suits your needs, budget and timeline.

Short List


Like most Recruiters, you are probably faced with two options when looking for candidates: You could pay a search firm and wait months for the perfect candidate, or you could spend all of your time sifting through hundreds of resumes where you will pay nothing and get nothing in return.

With TAG, there is another option: Benefit from the expertise of our Recruiters and save time and thousands of dollars in fees.

You receive a finalist Short List of superior candidates who have been proactively sourced and vetted with candidates who are interested in your opportunity. You manage the entire process from there. All within 2 weeks at less than half the cost of a typical search fee.

We do all the heavy lifting and you do the rest.

We simply provide perfect candidates.

Lower Flat Fees

Our Short List is a flat fee regardless of the candidate’s compensation. Because we have unbundled the process we are able to offer a substantially lower fee, regardless of the base salary, while still providing exceptional quality candidates.

Professional Search


We built our business providing a traditional full-service recruitment model with Fortune 500 companies. We understand that there are still searches that require a more consultative approach, where time is needed educating and persuading targeted candidates on the benefits of joining your organization. This is recommended when you need the extra guarantee that a hire will be made.
