A More Intelligent Way to Search


Smart Sourcing Makes Hiring Easier

Intellerati’s services make executive search smarter and easier. Our executive search research is designed to support in-house executive search teams at leading Fortune 500 companies. Our recruitment research also is designed to support companies that are scaling — those that have to find the talent they need in order to grow. We serve venture capital-backed startups and later stage private equity-backed corporations, as well as small and medium-sized companies in between.

Smart Sourcing is Flexible

We offer robust and flexible support, on demand. We deliver executive search research, critical-hire recruitment research, and candidate sourcing for exceptional results. We specialize in technology research, but we regularly support other searches in a broad range of industries. In other words, we conduct executive-level candidate sourcing for technology companies and for companies that leverage those technologies.

Smart Sourcing Boosts Success

We harness the actionable intelligence to reduce risk while we increase corporate recruiting success. Typically, we collaborate with corporate recruiters and focus on the front end of the recruiting process, delivering interested, qualified candidates. We are a firm that is incredibly adept at engaging senior-level executives and technology luminaries, with connections in all the right places. We also offer a wide array of other services that include diversity talent pools, succession benches, and studies focused on a talent ecosystem for competitive advantage.

Recruitment Research Services ROI

Our recruitment research services make a material impact. They help deliver important senior executive and technology hires. But the ROI does not stop there, as we detail in What a Sourcer is Worth: More Than $100 Million. Our research is so valuable it is leveraged for M&A.

Intellerati was founded by an award-winning investigative TV journalist with a specialty in computer-assisted research. We are staffed by investigative researchers. We offer employers virtually every form of executive search research available. Because smarter search has its advantages.

Intellerati Advantages

Deadline Sensibility

We consistently deliver better candidates in less time. Within a week, we deliver a target list of prospective candidates. Within a month’s time, on average, we deliver the candidate you ultimately hire. So, instead of losing thousands of dollars in revenue and productivity with unfilled jobs, your company has the critical hire you need to get the job done.

Opportunity to Save

Because most search firms charge a percentage of salary, they stand to benefit by inflating the compensation of the candidates they present. Our flat fee eliminates that conflict of interest and flexes to give you the amount of support you need: no more, no less. Because we are paid for the work that we do, you don’t have to worry about who “owns” what candidate the way you have to with other firms, which is really a pretty bizarre concept when you stop to think about it.

More for Your Money

We deliver interested, qualified candidates and hand over all the candidate research, which is something traditional search firms never do. You can use the research to build out your internal database and to make additional hires at no additional cost.

Due Diligence

With Intellerati, we issue comprehensive tracking reports, and because we hand over all the candidate research, you never have to guess what we’re doing on your behalf. That research serves as an audit trail, detailing the outcome of our every interaction with every candidate. Why settle for less?

Dream Candidates

We are experts at finding and recruiting amazing candidates other firms miss — like the time we tracked down a top financial services executive who took a hiatus “off the grid” tending to his gourmet chèvre cheese farm in rural Maryland. While other firms frequently deliver the same old suspects, we recruit talent you never dreamed existed. Better yet, we excel at bringing the “best of the best” to the table for game-changing hires.
