Partners Search Alliance (PSA)

Major Executive Search is a proud member of the Partners Search Alliance, an affiliation of retained boutique search firm CEOs who have worked together in close collaboration throughout the past decade. Each of the member CEO’s is a leading practitioner in their specific industry or geography, and all possess similar client service standards and have intimate knowledge of each other’s practice and areas of expertise. The alliance proactively works together to share perspectives and best in class methodologies to ensure all deliver the highest quality in executive search.
The PSA goal is to ensure that the clients of each of our member firms have access to an equally high caliber search provider when a need surfaces outside of their preferred partners’ specialty or geography. For more information, visit the PSA at
