Our Firm

PierceGray is a trusted executive search firm serving corporations around the world. Our three primary practice areas are: procurement & supply chain, the corporate center, and sales/marketing leadership roles. With headquarters in Chicago and consultants across the Americas and Europe, we serve a range of sectors, including energy, chemicals, manufacturing, high technology, consumer, and financial services.

Our Firm


Our founders came out of the operations consulting practices of North America’s highest caliber consulting firms. When supporting clients, they recognized that the underlying issue was often one of resident talent in the organizations they were serving. So, rather than serve clients via short-term consulting engagements, they decided to create PierceGray – to help major companies build great, self-reliant leadership teams.


Our growth – serving the Fortune 500 in different regions, industries, and functions – has been both steady and thoughtful. We have continually made ongoing investments in our search consultants, our role-specific assessment methodologies, and our proprietary database. And along the way, we have always treated each new client as if they were our first. As a result, over the years we have built a distinctive search process and an executive network that clients have come to trust.

Beyond search.

Today, great leadership teams need more than talent. They also require the right structure and development opportunities. In addition to executive search, we partner with clients on organizational design, performance management, training, and leadership development. We have become strategic advisers to our clients, and we enjoy working with executives who share our passion for unlocking the full potential of human capital.
