PHOENIX BOOK OF LISTS — Arizona top executive search firms — we did it again! Published by the Phoenix Business Journal.

Excerpt from Phoenix Business Journal Article 3/7/2022 – As the nation’s economy bounces back from two years of pandemic-induced slowdowns, many companies find themselves in dire need of talented executive leadership. Those individuals with the talent may be getting very good deals, according to several representatives of Phoenix-area executive search firms.

When the Phoenix Business Journal conducted its annual survey for the 2022 Executive Search Firms list, they included a few optional questions.

Q. Have executives’ salaries increased during the pandemic because of the talent shortage? How are you advising companies to handle the highly competitive nature of hiring right now? — Phoenix Business Journal

A. “There is no talent shortage. This should not be confused with the competitive nature of recruiting right now. Highly qualified and desirable candidates have many choices and are eager to negotiate employment terms including compensation, freedom to work remotely at least part of the time, and other typical executive perquisites.” — Marti Cizek, president, Cizek Associates Inc.

A TRIBUTE
John T Cizek, Jr. 1933 – 2021 — I had the honor of working with my father for over 20 years. He was a force in the world of retained executive search, serving clients nationally in both the private and public sectors. Early in my search career, he taught me most everything I needed to know about the industry. Once I started Cizek Associates in the summer of 1992, it took me over a year to convince him to leave his own firm in Chicago and join me at CAI. He used to tell people it took him that long to get used to the idea of working for his daughter. People always thought the firm was his, I really liked letting that impression prevail.
