Who We Are

Ellig Group is the leader in identifying, recruiting, developing, and onboarding diverse executive talent for senior-level appointments in the C-suite and boardroom.  We ensure long-term success for our corporate and nonprofit clients as well as the candidates whose careers we champion.  With roots dating to our legacy company’s founding in 1977, we rebranded as Ellig Group in 2017. 

Multi-generational, agile, transparent, and results-driven, we are today’s premier talent partner for tomorrow’s leadership needs. We are proud to be a certified woman-owned and operated firm (WBENC) dedicated to advocating for inclusive leadership that will shape the future.

In addition to our Executive Search Practice, which is the cornerstone of our business, we also offer a Leadership Consulting Practice that provides strategic programming and consulting solutions, such as individual and team coaching and a variety of assessments, to enhance and support leadership, as well as a Board Advisory Services Practice which provides tailored services such as board competency modeling, skills assessment, process and meeting materials reviews, and succession planning. 

Bloomberg Businessweek has called Janice Ellig, CEO and founder of Ellig Group, "One of the world's most influential headhunters."

How We Work

Search is the foundation of our business and frequently marks the beginning of our relationship with our clients. Our cutting-edge technology, robust database, and vast network provide a strong launching point for ongoing partnership and collaboration with our clients. Our candidate assessment process is robust, as we evaluate for integrity, character and moral compass, as well as exceptional competencies, and is tailored to each client’s unique needs. We utilize an enhanced role framework, market research, and insightful assessment tools, among other techniques to deliver innovative solutions and panels featuring diverse and highly-qualified candidates.

We offer a meaningful and holistic approach to talent identification and leadership development through our Executive/Board advisory and assessment capabilities, AI/analytics, as well as our leadership development and onboarding programs.

Dedicated to the ongoing success of our candidates and clients, we offer customized advice and tools to support our clients and candidates in reaching their goals before, during, and after a search assignment.

Ellig Group has been a proud member of IIC Partners since 2010.
