In every way, we make search smarter and more effective.

Executive Search Research Firm

Smart Sourcing

With the amount of data in the world doubling every two years, traditional candidate sourcing methods no longer cut it. In fact, it takes greater recruiting research expertise to separate the signal from the noise — the contenders from the wanna-be’s — to make executive search smarter.

Genius Partner

Founded by an award-winning television journalist and investigative reporter, Intellerati uncovers candidates others miss. We deliver expert executive search research: name generation, candidate development, executive talent mapping, candidate sourcing, org charts, and custom recruitment research.

Flat Fee

Our flat-fee retainer is based on the amount of work that we do — not on a percentage of candidate compensation. We give you the opportunity to save. You pay only for the candidate sourcing support that you need: no more, no less. To learn more, check our Global Reach, the Functions we frequently recruit, and the Industry Sectors we serve.
