Burgess Leighton & Associates

Burgess Leighton offers the best practices of a large international firm combined with the intimacy of a boutique operation - to provide the advantages of both with the disadvantages of neither.
Burgess Leighton offers the professionalism and discretion of a large international firm with the personal attention of a boutique.
All personnel at Burgess Leighton honed their craft at either Spencer Stuart or Heidrick & Struggles and were consistently ranked in the top 20% for quality of work.
We faithfully follow all of the time-honored, individual steps which lead to superior results – including gathering independent references before presenting a candidate and performing a client satisfaction survey after the completion of every search.
Candidates are developed using industry leading “best practices” - collaborating with clients to identify target companies, obtaining specific identification of appropriate prospects at such companies, utilizing database resources from relevant searches, and extensive sourcing.
Our service doesn’t vary according to fee. For searches below their minimum fee, larger firms typically reduce costs by utilizing electronic means to broadcast for prospects. This saves money but does not produce the all-important reference a source provides.
What you see is what you get. The consultant with whom you meet is the same one who conducts the search.
