What We Do

Our specialty is placing transformational leaders in firms of distinction nationwide. We focus on filling strategic and unique positions at the highest levels within a firm. Examples include Directors of Marketing and Business Development, COOs, and other business functions, as well as senior Architectural, Planning, Landscape and Interior Design talent.

 Our services include retained executive search and consulting services. We partner with our clients to identify, attract, and nurture creative talent, with a focus on leadership development, workplace culture, and employee engagement and retention.

Portnoy Consulting supports the creation of high-quality architecture and design by helping firms build their own intellectual brain trusts. Architecture is, above all, a product of creative minds working together. Great teams aren’t built by chance, but require a firm’s commitment to capture and cultivate a diverse array of the best and brightest talents. Our mission is to empower our clients to pursue their missions

 

We work with any architecture, design firm, developer or institution, either for profit or non-profit, whose work we feel makes a positive contribution to the built environment, to our cities, and for the social good.

Architecture matters. Making places, spaces, and objects at all scales is fundamental to the human experience. People matter, too. Not just the people who benefit from the architecture around us, but the people who design the spaces, places, and objects. Architects are people, too. We are driven to help address architecture's talent conundrum by going beyond a transactional model of recruiting. People enter the profession for love, and yet we continue to see alarming attrition rates, especially among women and other minorities. Does the culture of firms contribute to this decline? If so, how can we advise our clients to retain talent, protect their investment in their people, and do their best work?

 

In our role as executive recruiters, we work closely with senior professionals who are contemplating moving to another firm, and as such are uniquely positioned to address questions such as:

·       What attracts candidates to a firm?

·       What keeps them loyal, engaged, and invested over a long tenure?

·       What makes them leave?
