About The Ellig Group / IIC Partners

Executive Search is the cornerstone of our business, but only the beginning of our partnership with our clients and candidates. Our philosophy offers a more meaningful and holistic approach throughout the full talent lifecycle. Through our advisory and assessment capabilities, as well as our leadership development and onboarding programs, we provide the guidance and tools to help both parties reach their goals before and after the search process. When selected with purpose, cultivated with care, and placed in the right environment, talent will thrive and organizations will prosper. We are reimagining search through the talent we present, the success of our candidates, and the world-class experience we provide our clients.


Research shows that diverse leadership teams make for the most successful organizations, which is why we work closely with a diverse network of talent to identify new pools of leaders. This is a critical competitive advantage for our clients because diversity improves shareholder value and enhances an organization’s reputation. We take a broad view of inclusion across a range of areas including ability, age, ethnicity, gender, religion, sexual orientation, and gender identity and expression. We are immensely proud of our unparalleled track record as game changers in the executive search industry. Our numbers tell the story: Over the past three years, 96% of our candidate panels contained women and/or diverse executives, resulting in 75% of our executive appointments and 85% of our board appointments being women, people of color, members of the LGBTQ community, people with disabilities, and veterans.


Our personalized, high-touch, and hands-on approach to partnering with our clients is unsurpassed and a hallmark of The Ellig Group. We leverage innovative technology to offer our clients clear and transparent communication with 24/7 access to their search via an online portal. This system acts as a seamless extension of our in-house team, and allows us to digitally collaborate with our clients and provide easily accessible updates on the status of their search. From the convenience of their mobile devices, whether they’re in the office or on the road, our clients can access proprietary assessment tools, review shortlists, and provide timely feedback.


Our success comes from the success of the candidates we place. We work closely with our clients and candidates before, during, and after the search process to be certain the right person is in the right position, and grows within the position and the organization successfully. We assess each role and provide a tailored framework that identifies role requirements, objectives, and success factors; offer coaching to uncover and define goals and ease transition; and customize onboarding services to assist a leader in becoming fully integrated into his or her organization. We stay close to our placed executives in their new positions, and continue to work with them to ensure a long-term career in the organizations in which they are hired – and beyond.
