From Connie Adair, CEO – Taylor Winfield Executive Search

2011 was a tremendous year for Taylor Winfield, thanks to our great clients and talented TW team. Last year we conducted over 60 searches across our core industries — from digital media to clean tech; retail to gaming. Notable activities included assembling several members of the executive team for IGT, delivering dual candidate slates in US and Germany for Netrada and opening a new Taylor Winfield office in New York.

The majority of Taylor Winfield’s executive searches come from repeat customers who are recognized industry leaders. Our “best practices” search methodology has earned us one of the highest closure rates in the industry. In 2011, 96% of searches closed in an average of 115 days – and we are very proud of that.

We appreciate our relationships with clients and friends and wish you a prosperous 2012. Here is a list of selected searches from 2011:
