A. Davis Grant
A retained executive search firm recruiting exclusively for the information systems and technology industry, from CIO to technical support.
A. Davis Grant & Company began its operations in 1985, our founding partners having worked together in technology recruiting since the 1970's. One of the first search firms to automate its files, ADG was designed from its inception to be a value added resource for the hiring company to depend on in its selection and staffing of I/T professionals.

ADG opened its doors with a fully computerized, proprietary database already designed and implemented. Now one of the most extensive databases in the industry, it consists of thousands of selected resources constituting a tremendous potential talent pool. This database enhances and supports an even greater asset: our insider’s knowledge and understanding of the IT world. We can begin the actual recruiting process with much less time spent on preliminary research because of this unique combination of years of experience, staff expertise, and vast data resource.
In the 1990s, the two business pillars of Human Resources and Capital Resources were joined by a third: Information Resources. The CIO is now a key member of the executive management team and must be as well schooled in general business issues as in technology—perhaps more so. He or she needs to be a consummate business leader; a strategist who can provide a vision as well creative approaches and solutions to increasingly complex business challenges. Information architecture and strategies must integrate completely with all other business plans and strategies. And with today’s emphasis on teams and consensus, leadership and management style is more important than ever. At ADG we know how and where to identify these technology leaders of today and tomorrow. We’ve been doing it successfully for a long time.
Acting as an extension of our client company, we undertake to perform a task that goes beyond finding a candidate who simply fits the stated specifications of an assignment. We spend as much time as possible learning the culture and personality of each client so we can form a comprehensive profile of their needs and of the ideal candidate. We save our clients' time from being spent on endless interviews and trial and error by knowing them well enough to refer only the most highly qualified individuals. Our long term partnerships with our clients are deeply rooted in the success of the professionals we place. We approach each and every search as though it is our most important - because it is.
A. Davis Grant & Company has been endorsed in the new edition of John Lucht's Rites of Passage at $100,000+ as one of the top 300 search firms in North America, and has been included in the Kennedy Publication list of The 40 Largest Retained Executive Search Firms in the U.S. Our reputation in the industry and our standing in the general business community demonstrate the success of our founding principles: ethics, discretion, and a healthy respect for our clients’ time.
