Unique Practice

We are a search firm you will actually enjoy working with. Strategic. Transparent. Experienced. Insightful. Hassle-Free.

Ellington Growth Partners is a highly specialized, “A” player search firm with almost two decades of success identifying, recruiting, and capturing exceptional professionals for our client organizations. Perhaps considered old school, we rely on relationships, reputation, referrals, and personal conversations to reach and motivate the top performers.  As trusted partners with our clients, we invest a considerable amount of time to understand each client’s business, culture, competitors, challenges, and objectives. We are equally committed to understanding the objectives of each industry-professional, as each hire must be a good fit for all parties, to achieve sustainable success. Our success as a firm is measured, not by the number of placements but the long-term Quality of Hire (QoH) and tenure of our clients.

We reach "A Players" because we know where they swim.  Superior professionals are seemingly hidden, as these professionals are busy working, well appreciated, generally happy, totally unaware of boards and LinkedIn listings. Ads prove ineffective in motivating those who do not consider themselves looking. These are the professionals we attract and work with, everyday. 

"The top 1% of a company’s workforce produces 5% of that company’s output. And the top 5% produce 26%. Given these numbers, it’s clear that top performers are a bargain."- Dr. John Sullivan, Michael Jordan of Recruiting
