TKJ Associates: A small firm with big capabilities.

We work exclusively on retainer and with only a few clients at a time.
Each client has our full attention. We take time to listen, to know each client, and to personalize our service, whether finding the ideal senior executive for a large or small company, or coaching a valued business leader for new leadership responsibilities.

We know what drives a business

We know the needs of each functional area, from HR, sales and marketing, to finance and general management.

What sets us apart

Our passion for what we do, the way we see each client and candidate as unique, and our ability to think creatively to solve for individual needs. We have an extraordinary ability to make connections with people, to listen beyond the spoken words, to counsel clients –and to be powerful ambassadors for them. Our clients often tell us they appreciate that we “get it,” and that we deliver pleasant surprises and even better – great results.

Our clients

We service a broad range of clients, from professional and financial services firms to consumer, hospitality, real estate, non-profit and healthcare businesses. Our clients range from early stage businesses to corporations. We specialize in conducting searches for heads of each function, with an emphasis on the human resources/talent development and marketing functions.
