Experience Matters. Ours, Theirs and Yours.

Our goal is to make your experience positive and rewarding.

Executive Search Experience You Can Trust

Since 1984, O’Connor O’Connor Lordi, has been helping small- to mid-cap organizations with nationwide talent recruitment. We specialize in serving corporate clients to fill leadership positions with a watchful eye on their future growth. Our practice is driven by the philosophy of becoming an extension of our client’s organization, representing them in a way that establishes trust and confidence with the passive candidate. As one of our clients, you can expect a dedicated, comprehensive search process following the DMAIC methodology, resulting in industry-leading success (98%) and retention rates (82%).

We operate on these simple principles:

  • We manage our capacity and will commit to a maximum of three concurrent searches per Engagement Manager to ensure focus, quality and speed to each of our active projects.
  • The consultant who “sells the search, does the search.” Our finger is always “on the pulse” from start to finish, assuring:
    • Dedication, open communication and real-time feedback;
    • Quick reaction and refinement to “disconnects”;
    • A credible “face” to the candidate, providing a more effective promotion of our client.
  • Research is done in-house to maintain our hands-on approach and control the integrity and efficiency of the search.

Although O’Connor O’Connor Lordi is a national executive search firm, our clients are concentrated in these areas:

Pennsylvania: Pittsburgh, Erie, Greensburg, Sharon, Indiana, State College, Philadelphia
Ohio: Cleveland, Cincinnati, Akron, Canton, Columbus, Youngstown, Toledo
West Virginia: Wheeling and Morgantown
