Firm Profile

Matthews Partners is a national retained and contingency search firm. The firm focuses within the commercial and municipal finance markets. For more than a decade we've successfully completed search for privately and publicly-held companies at the executive, senior, and middle management level. All partners and associates bring both experience and relationships from work within the specialty finance community.  

The firm was founded on and is guided daily by four principles:
1) Build a firm that values integrity and character
2) Keep our clients and candidates interest before our own
3) Hire competent and principle-based associates
4) Perform at our highest level for each search assignment

As a privately held boutique firm, we are driven by one objective: serving our clients. Our commitment to quality permeates each and every element of our search: our people, our process and our database of proven and emerging talent.

Our Approach
Finding the one individual who stands out from the rest, whose unique skills and qualifications make him or her the linchpin in a client’s success, is the key to executive search. Our business at Matthews Partners is to find extraordinary people. We have built our search practice upon the belief that a company’s leadership requirements are a critical part of its strategy, and that executive search is best performed with an undeniable commitment to the long-term success of our clients.

Corporate leadership and management is as important an element of corporate strategy as deciding how to introduce new products or raise capital for expansion. Our role is to be a consultant and strategic advisor in this vital area by providing judgment, market intelligence and insight, not just a list of names. Before a prospect becomes a candidate, we perform an in-depth analysis of the executive to document accomplishments, management style, leadership philosophy and personal and professional ambition. Client involvement is essential throughout the search process and beyond. From our initial meeting, to closing the offer, to timely candidate follow-ups, we partner with the client to ensure a successful candidate transition.
