Our Process

We deliver excellence in executive search and talent management solutions.

We take a high touch and bespoke approach to every client engagement.

Diagnostic & Calibration

In addition to a robust scorecard, we utilize proprietary tools to measure culture, develop role-specific leadership competencies, and assess the team using the Orxestra Method.


Executive Search

A typical executive search can take between 8-12 weeks, with a senior partner providing guidance and counsel throughout the process.



Bedford’s unique process does not conclude once the executive is placed. Complementing the Orxestra integration workbook (Without Breaking Stride), we deliver on our promise to see our search strategy through to complete integration. We continue to support the new leader with multiple checkpoints within the critical first twelve months in the role.
