BULLSEYE EXECUTIVE SEARCH is a boutique recruiting firm with a singular approach: matching high-caliber professionals—entry-level to C-suite—with top performing, innovative, and morally sound institutions.


BULLSEYE EXECUTIVE SEARCH works with a variety of professionals in accounting and finance, risk, banking operations, sales and marketing, and human resources functions. Our clients include alternative investment managers, investment banks, Fortune 500 companies, not-for-profits, and startups backed by the world’s leading venture capital and private equity firms.

We aim to make a perfect match between individual and employer. A round of darts is defined as “any turn of three throws at the board,” and we are committed to showing three quality candidates for every position we work, certain that one—if not all—will hit the mark.


BULLSEYE EXECUTIVE SEARCH brings four core values to our strategic recruiting practice:

  • We provide staffing solutions that connect the right employers with the right talent. We are not interested in generating one-time fees. We build long-term relationships. We’re the Match.com of recruiting—not the Tinder.
  • We bring levity, enjoyment, and collegiality to an industry mired down in outmoded stuffiness and traditionalism.
  • We believe the recruiting industry must evolve in step with the global market to become more agile, flexible, and customer-centric.
  • We embrace honesty and transparency—even when the truth is difficult. We will always be open and responsive to the feedback our clients and candidates give to us.



We have more than a decade of experience working with leading investment banks, insurers, alternative investment managers, hedge funds, private equity shops, venture capitalists and ’40 Act firms to deliver high-performing finance, accounting, audit, risk (credit, operational and market), human resources, and executive support professionals. We also provide consulting on compensation, benefits, and other recruiting and retention matters for key financial services clients.


We work with a range of leading public companies across many verticals–including pharmaceutical and biotech companies, retailers, and consumer goods manufacturers–to source talent for finance, accounting, audit, enterprise risk, cyber-security, human resources, and executive support roles.


We work with a variety of not-for-profit organizations to recruit professionals for critical finance, accounting, fundraising, and administrative positions.


We partner with early stage and fast-growing enterprises backed by the world’s leading venture capital and private equity firms from Silicon Valley to Silicon Alley. We fill a wide range of critical front-, middle-, and back-office openings with the best talent, serving as a one-stop-shop for young companies seeking to minimize their growing pains.
