About Executive Advantage Group  

Executive Advantage Group is a Retained Executive Search firm specializing in executive search and leadership transformation consulting.

Since 2001, we have been helping clients transform their leadership throughout the talent acquisition, development and retention process by maximizing the value executive leadership delivers through their experience and potential to deliver quantified business impact.

With over two decades of experience conducting national executive searches, with and without geographic constraint, for positions across North America, we have proven our executive search process and unique concept of 21st Century Leadership Transformation in virtually every industry segment and functional discipline. Headquartered across the globe from Tel Aviv to Kuala Lumpur, our clients range from pre-revenue early-stage start-ups, to family owned enterprises, to +$30B public companies.

With offices in Silicon Valley and the Pacific Northwest, Executive Advantage Group provides retained executive search and leadership transformation consulting services to a wide range of clients needing to attract and develop best-of-breed Board of Director and Officer Level leadership talent to Vice President, Director, Manager, and even key individual-contributor level individuals.

Our retained search closure rate far exceeds industry averages, and we are proud of the quality of our work. We have developed a wide range of unique best practices and eliminated a wider range of traditional retained search process and policy inefficiencies. Because of our unique network driven methodology, we have the largest candidate reach of any search firm in the world. Our network reach translates into our ability to thoroughly cover a viable candidate population on behalf of our clients better than any other known sourcing methodology. As a result of fulfilling our clients’ definition of quality, clients consistently favor our consultants with a high degree of repeat business.

Each of our search Principals and Consultants possess Executive careers in sales, marketing, and technology management spanning more than 20-years. With more than two decades (on average) of direct P&L line management and direct real-world business experience, unlike most search consultants, we don’t simply understand the marketplace; we have actually worked in the marketplace. Our experience translates into our ability to thoroughly qualify a candidate's Leadership Value against our client's critical hiring criteria prior to formal submission.

Our Results:

In short, we deliver 21st Century Leadership Transformation ROI.


"Executive Advantage Group was well above everybody else we’ve worked with."
Jordan Greenhall, CEO & Co-Founder, DivXNetworks, Inc.

"Compared to the other both large and boutique search firms I've used, Executive Advantage Group's network is very large and they tuned into our industry specifically. There's no comparison. I knew we would be more likely to find candidates that fit our industry going with Executive Advantage Group, Inc."
Sandra Swann, Director of Human Resources, ViewCast Corporation

"I’ve used many search firms in my career. Executive Advantage Group definitely moved with speed."
Christopher L. Marsh, President & CEO, Unicru, Inc.

"One thing I'll say is Executive Advantage Group's networking reach and ability to cover the largest possible candidate population is impressive and quite effective."
Andy Holroyd, Senior Vice President, Instruments Division, Ashtead Technology

"I've used Korn Ferry, Heidrick & Struggles, Spencer Stuart, and other boutique retained executive search firms. I've found that the key to success is the people on the search, not the specific firm. The searches Exegy conducted were of strategic importance to us, and Exegy needed personal attention. We chose Executive Advantage Group's Michael Rothstein and Ron Bates as opposed to other firms we looked at.. This search closed a hire of a successful candidate after only 52 days."
Benjamin M. Brink , CEO, Exegy, Inc.

"Compared to my experiences with large firms as well as other smaller firms, Executive Advantage Group is vastly different in a very positive way. They were aggressive, connected, know the market place well, and provided proven results. Michael and Ron's ability to add value based on their real world careers is existent in how they approach everything. They understand the corporate environment, the information people are looking for, and the general practicality associated with a corporate reality. Their due diligence and prescreening of potential candidates is very, very, thorough and right on, and I don't find any of that is the same with other firms. Michael and Ron are much more thorough than anyone else."
Laura Larsen, Dir. HR & Administration, Zhone Technologies, Inc.

"None of the leading retained executive search firms I've ever worked with, as a client or candidate, have demonstrated an ability to go beyond basic assessment of executive candidate career accomplishments. None employ a candidate evaluation approach that truly identifies - how - executive candidates were able to realize their accomplishments as a result of employing specific executive skills, let alone assesses, when mapped forward into a mission critical position, how well their executive skills would project success. Given the value of their unique assessment process, when I need to fill mission critical positions, I can't think of using any firm other than Executive Advantage Group, Inc."
Joe Kozak, SVP SWAT Teams, Oracle Corp.

"In the course of my executive career, I've used Heidrick & Struggles, Russell Reynolds, Spencer Stuart, Korn Ferry and a number of boutique firms. Compared to my experiences with those other firms, Ron and Michael gave me the -only- experience with an executive recruiter where I thought they were truly interested in filling the job rather than throwing paper against the wall. "
Phil Kelly, Chairman & CEO, Vsource, Inc.
