The Candidate Elite:
Where do you find the
world’s best leaders?

You find them at the intersection of strategy and execution. Of action and analysis. Of education and experience.

You find them in Hammer Haley’s Candidate Elite: a community of leaders who combine first-rank academic credentials and world-class employment pedigrees. From institutions such as HBS, Wharton, Stanford, Kellogg, Booth, Sloan, Tuck, Darden, Fuqua, Columbia, Stern, IIM, Anderson, Haas, Ross and Tepper. From consultancies such as McKinsey, Bain, BCG, Booz, Oliver Wyman, L.E.K. and ZS to implementers like Deloitte, Accenture and IBM, and advisories like Goldman and Morgan Stanley.

These aren’t just good candidates – they’re the best. With a history of flattening learning curves. Creating immediate impact. And serving as their organizations’ thought leaders.

The Candidate Elite is a community that we’ve been nurturing since 2001. While our focus is on candidates with their MBA, JD, MD or PhD, we actually begin establishing relationships with certain high-potential individuals early in their career ascension – some while still in their pre-MBA stage.

The result: When you’re ready for them – and they’re ready for you – we’re ready to make the introduction.
