Kim understands that the most important aspect of a successful search is the fit between company culture and a candidate’s style and vision for their career. Because of the deep understanding of company culture she develops for each placement, the same client often contracts for several searches when building a team. She has worked for many clients over the years as key executives leave or when they are expanding the executive ranks.

Kim’s success in developing candidate lists that are extraordinary has resulted clients requesting Pre-Search Sourcing for them. These are typically cases where the placement is beyond their reach, the candidate does not yet see the potential, or the company must remain highly confidential in their outreach. Kim is known for bringing forth remarkable candidates that, as a client once said, “we could only dream of finding.

Potential clients sometimes ask how Kimberly Bishop Executive Search competes with the giant search firms; Kim’s answer, “It’s all about relationships leading to the best talent and a curated list of qualified candidates that match the client’s specifications and corporate culture.” You won’t get a board book filled with the “usual suspects.”

On a recent board search, Kim offered three candidates, all of which the client wished could be placed on their board, but there was only the one opening.

When another company called and told her their previous search firm said they could not find a qualified woman to fill a board seat, Kim’s response was “That’s not possible” and successfully completed the placement.
