What Our Clients Are Saying About Us

Campbell & Company is more than just a search firm, but a company that advocates well beyond the placement of the candidates. This additional support that Campbell provides is professionalism with care. They are an organization committed to the success of their clients and their accessibility to be a resource is unmatched.

Ashley Jordan, Ph.D., President and CEO

Until I met the Campbell & Company Executive Search team, my experience over a long career with executive search firms had, frankly, been mixed at best. From my first interaction with them, I knew this was a different kind of firm. They are truly interested in finding the best candidate for the organization they are representing, and they go about it by developing authentic, supportive, and meaningful relationships with candidates. For me, too many search firms come across as purely transactional. Campbell & Company is different. They are truly special and I am a better executive thanks to their involvement with me and my organization.

Doug Mitchell, Executive Director
