Filling Critical Roles

Founded in 1971, Krauthamer & Associates (K&A) is a retained executive search firm that serves a diverse client base in North America, Europe and Asia.  From Fortune 500 companies to entrepreneurial start-ups, we focus on the C-suite and their direct reports. We partner with our clients to identify, attract and retain exceptional talent that drives measurable and operational success within the organization.

Building Stronger Boards

Public, private, and family-owned companies rely on K&A for confidential, high-level engagements to address unique challenges associated with the organization of the Board and the recruitment of new Directors or Advisors. By understanding an organization’s strategy and culture, we’re able to assemble a team with the skills and experience that match the strategic direction of each organization.

Identifying Talent for the Future

K&A has developed several long term programmatic relationships with clients. These strategic partnerships were put in place to identify a proprietary pipeline of external candidates in order to maintain a steady flow of the most sought after individuals versus reactionary recruiting. Working closely with the client, gaps in human capital needs are identified that are consistent impediments to achieving short and long term goals. These partnerships allow K&A and our clients to monitor the careers of very key individuals that would be immediately impactful to helping our clients achieve their strategic initiatives.

Access to Our Relationships

With nearly 50 years of recruiting experience and a network that spans virtually every industry, K&A is uniquely positioned to serve as a strategic advisor to our clients, offering a complimentary expansion of our human capital solutions. We support investors, Private Equity firms, and other clients by tapping into our network in order to assist with due diligence and other pre- and post-deal intelligence.

Access to Capital

Throughout the years of working and recruiting talented executives, K&A has been positioned to participate either directly or indirectly in the strategic planning activities for many of our clients. In doing so, we understand businesses’ needs for financial partners as they embrace greater initiatives which require additional capital resources.


To that end, K&A has formed an exclusive partnership with Virgo Investment Group LLC, a private investment group that invests and manages capital in the aviation, media, healthcare, and wellness industries. Working closely with this highly-resourced and flexible financial partner, K&A assists its clients in partnering with this financial platform which seeks to invest and/or lend capital to growing enterprises.
