How We Work
John Salveson and Sally Stetson, two highly respected human resources consultants, founded the firm in 1986. They believed they had a better model for a search firm – one that considered cultural fit as carefully as it did experience. To further enforce this model, as a member of the MPI family of companies, SSG works closely with its affiliate, NuBrick Partners, to assess and develop optimal talent to implement an organization’s vision, mitigating risk to build and strengthen its leadership team. SSG’s experience in evaluating talent, leadership, and culture enables its clients to recruit, develop, and retain high performance executives. Recruiting is both an art and a science – combining role screening, rigorous assessment processes, and detailed interviews to ensure the best fit.
SSG connects with its clients as an extension of the organization and takes that responsibility very seriously. It is regularly praised by clients and candidates alike for a process that is built around both excellence and integrity.
SSG has been a member of IIC Partners since 2011, and since then, has contributed in various leadership roles within the organization, including Sally Stetson serving on the Board of Directors from 2015 to 2019.
