About Us

Our Story

Shelli Herman and Associates, Inc. is widely considered one of the top executive search firms based in Los Angeles. That is because at the core of our practice is a commitment to giving our clients personal attention and an exceptional quality of service.

To achieve our extraordinary placement success, we have developed a resourceful, disciplined, and high touch approach to executive search. Starting with a comprehensive information-gathering process, we then begin an extensive, equitable search augmented by our state-of-the-art research and backed by more than two decades of success in executive recruiting.

Clients who choose Shelli Herman and Associates, Inc. get the best of both worlds. They get the global reach of a large firm and the world-class, high touch responsiveness of a smaller firm. The result is an agile and successful search completely tailored to each client’s unique requirements.
