How extraordinary companies recruit top talent

While most of our clients cite our exceptional attention to detail and superior results as the principal reasons they come back, we know there is so much more. We believe the difference lies in our firm’s dedication to integrity, quality, and success.

Our three core pillars place us in a unique position to empower individuals and organizations to go beyond their limits.

Shelli Herman and Associates, Inc.

Integrity. Quality. Success.



We have built our business around ethical and results-based practices, structuring our firm to provide the highest tier of personalized attention to each executive search. 

Because we pride ourselves on our results, you will get the best fit for your organization when our work together is done.


We have rigorous quality standards, which is why all our search consultants have prestigious backgrounds, each with at least a decade of search experience gained in reputable retained executive search firms.

This also shows in our disciplined executive search process, which we augment with the latest technology and up-to-the-minute market intelligence to ensure decisions are based on both experience and data, giving you unsurpassed candidates. 


98%. It is the amount of business that comes from repeat clients and referrals. Our firm also has a 95% retention rate on each placement we have made since 2010. We can achieve this incredible success rate because we have built a firm designed for it.

To facilitate this goal, we have developed a process with exacting standards at every stage of the search for the industry trailblazers we serve who appreciate that we create a custom search based on their values, company culture, existing team, expectations, and goals.

What Clients Say

“As a candidate, I was impressed by how compellingly Shelli was able to articulate the mission and needs of the institution she was representing and how brilliantly she helped me see how my credentials and experience matched up with the available position. She guided me every step of the way, bringing transparency to an otherwise mysterious process and helping me become the best possible candidate I could be.”
