What clients are saying…


Alexander Ross set itself apart from the rest of the search community by having a deep understanding of the learning and development functions I was trying to fill.  The firm was consistently successful in identifying superior performers to join my team at the bank.

Alexander Ross was a valued strategic partner for close to two decades as we built the firm. They did outstanding work in understanding our needs and finding us world class talent.  In addition, they helped us to recognize how our needs changed over time and how that changed our recruiting requirements. They did superb work for us.

The professionalism that Ben Lichtenstein and Alexander Ross demonstrated in recruiting a global group of superior OD professionals for my newly minted Change team at the bank was truly impressive.

Ben and his team have been instrumental in conducting a complex search for us in the Middle East.  Not only have they hit the nail on the head in terms of what we are looking for, but they have made sure that expectations were in line so offers and negotiations would be successful.  In addition, they screened the candidates so well that everyone who has come to the Middle East for a site visit has already been committed to accept the job if offered.  The amazing thing is that everyone who has come over to date has been offered a job because they had been so well screened and so well prepared.  This level of success would be hard to replicate in a move within a country, but to accomplish what they have accomplished and doing so moving people from a western culture to the other side of the world, has been, in my opinion, an incredible success.

What candidates are saying…

Ben Lichtenstein’s outstanding track record in recruiting speaks for itself.  Over the past 15 years, he has been an invaluable career coach and has been instrumental in helping me land key leadership positions.  He has a customer-focused mentality, graciously agreeing on numerous occasions to speak with me “off-hours” in order to field my questions. He is a generous adviser, regardless of whether a search project is in the works.  Ben’s “brand” has been built by establishing, maintaining, and nurturing strong relationships with candidates and clients over the long term.

My experience as a final candidate in an Alexander Ross search for a senior OD/OE role in the Middle East was exceptional.  The professionalism and care of the principals and the quality of the process that I experienced were among the best of any recruiting experience in my career.  From initially being identified as a “person of interest”, to my in-person interactions with the firm, to meeting with the client directly, I always felt well-informed and that the firm’s focus was authentically on establishing fit, or not, between the needs of the client and my capabilities and personality.

Alexander Ross stands out from its peers.  They know the opportunities they are representing extremely well.  Their follow-up and constant communications ensured that there were no surprises and I was comfortable with the process throughout its twists and turns.  I felt confident with Alexander Ross as my representative.

What our referral sources are saying…

When contacted by a principal at Alexander Ross to identify some unique “invisible” talent for a global search, I had no hesitation.  I knew some candidates with highly relevant expertise who were not currently “in-market” for a new role.  More importantly, however, I was fully confident that any candidates I put forth would be contacted and have their interests explored in an expert and confidential manner by people who really understand the field.
