Advisory Board

The collective understanding of ESGI Partners and Board Advisors distinguishes us from the other executive search firms who work in this market. While many of the global search firms have offices in the DC region, they are part of large commercial firms.

Federal Contracting is our only business and we have attracted executives who understand every phase of this dynamic and changing market. We serve all three major sectors: Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Civilian, and Department of Defense (DOD). We have helped attract senior talent for virtually every federal agency.

The ESGI advisory board reflects our understanding of the federal contracting business. With a limited client base we have a wide universe of potential candidate to draw upon for strategically critical positions. ESGI also cultivates relationships on a daily basis with the top performers in the business. The results are searches being completed quickly and well below the average of time our competitors. We also have a 97% success rate as measured by how well the executive whom we help attract performs one year into the job.

ESGI is a safe choice if you are interested in succeeding in the federal contracting business.
