Specialty Practices

Berkhemer Clayton is distinguished by our specialty practices, which are professional functions, not industries. This results in fewer “off-limits” restrictions, giving our clients access to the widest pool of potential candidates, and produces seasoned executives for our clients, with faster search completion. Practice leaders are not only experts in executive search but have decades of personal career experience in their specialty practices. We understand the functional disciplines required by our practices and are knowledgeable about emerging market trends. Our extensive personal and professional networks serve client organizations well to successfully identify and recruit the best candidates. We specialize in these practices
