“I have worked with dozens of premiere, name brand retained executive search firms throughout my career and been disappointed with many. The Lancer Group is truly a standout in this crowded space. They bring three important capabilities to their work. A commitment to truly understanding the job specification and the needs of their clients. A strong and broad research capability. A real commitment to satisfying clients and not stuffing a candidate to complete a search.”

Bob Sywolski, Former CEO of Blackbaud

The team at Lancer was great. They had a deep understanding of the company and the role required by the CFO. They moved the process along quickly and efficiently.

Charlie Dickson, Former Senior Operating Advisor, Hellman & Friedman

Lancer has helped us find outstanding people for our executive team and board.

Mick Hellman, Founder & Managing Partner at HMI Capital
