About Us

Cornerstone Associates was founded and incorporated in response to the needs of the marketplace for improved value-adding recruiting & consulting solutions that are more cost effective. Not only do we want to provide excellent service, but we want to do it at a fair cost. There are extreme gaps in the recruiting & consulting industry. The gap between the large international corporate providers in retained search and most typical small contingency search firms is widening. This disparity in perceived value also surfaces between the large well known and expensive financial/management consulting firms when compared to most boutique consulting & staffing/temporary agencies. Cornerstone Associates was founded to fill these gaps for both small-to-mid sized companies and Fortune 500 corporations by providing the highest quality service coupled with outstanding value. We can fill the gap between your general lower-level "temp agencies" and the very costly large consulting firms and Big 4 type firms.

Our very experienced and professional team has years of valuable experience in the business world; both in recruiting and the fields in which they specialize. We provide quality retained search-like service without the high costs whether it is a retained search or a contingent search since we provide both to our client companies depending on the situation. Our contingency fees are very reasonable and our clients only pay for success. We also have the flexibility to customize our client's terms and arrangements based on the degree of difficulty, volume, use and exclusivity. We also conduct retained searches when requested or necessary. Cornerstone Associates truly wants to partner with our client companies to provide the best people for their organization whether it is for the CEO, VP of Finance, Sales Manager or an Interim Controller position. Cornerstone Associates is constantly anticipating and implementing resourceful recruiting strategies that not only keep pace, but lead the way in today's ever changing technology. We do not respond when we think we have a good candidate, we respond when our clients have a NEED for outstanding employees, managers or executives. Our goal is to create life-long customers.
