People First

We lead with genuine care and concern for our employees, clients, candidates and the local community. Building and maintaining strong relationships is essential in business and in life.

Process Driven

Process Driven

Using our proven methodology, technology, and tools, we help define, source and select your ideal candidate. A retained search firm, we obsess over fit and we are determined to help you build your dream team.



When you hire Kaplan Executive Search to find your next COO or leadership team member, you hire a partner, not a vendor. We are committed to open and honest communication with our clients and candidates to best achieve success together and expect the same in return.

Power of Diversity

 Power of Diversity

People differ in their ideas, capabilities, life experiences and action modes. This diversity drives businesses forward. We make every effort to present our client with at least one qualified diverse candidate in each search. Talent knows no boundaries.
