RETURN ON LEADERSHIP
 

Testimonials



It was a pleasure to work with Ray & Berndtson. We had a couple of very senior positions to be filled, and we achieved a shortlist of good leaders in a short period of time. In addition, the discussions we had to convert the positions along with the options generated made the executive search and onboarding much easier. Ray & Berndtson's personal attention and dedication towards the assignment is greatly appreciated.

Why? Why not?

These seemingly mundane questions are catalysts in technology's continuing ability to affect every business in the world and perpetually change billions of lives. Restless, brilliant minds pursue myriad answers to the two queries through technological discoveries and exhaustive applications.

The result? The technology industry's products and services enable and enhance communication - whether between individuals, groups, or inanimate objects - meeting an age-old human need and creating a world that wants more, better, faster. With apparently boundless application and insatiable markets, perhaps only the human factor - leadership - can limit a technology company - or push it beyond expectations.

Like those creating innovative products, the board of directors, chief executive officer, and senior executive team must believe in the infinite possibilities of their proprietary products and unique services. But when they ask "why" and "why not," they must marry the dreams of possibility with business pragmatism. Senior management and the board must create, communicate, and implement strategy and tactics to unite diverse functions and intellectual personalities in pursuing discovery that becomes profitable business.

Technology companies need executives who can run a successful business in his highly competitive industry. Ray & Berndtson's global technology professionals consistently identify these rare individuals, providing our clients the leadership talent they need.
