Established in 1954, Canny, Bowen is widely known as the preeminent boutique executive search firm in the United States. For over 60 years, we have specialized in one thing: recruiting the very best senior level executive and legal talent, with no ancillary services to distract us.
Canny, Bowen is committed to remaining privately held and modest in size to avoid the restrictions found in global search firms which prevent a thorough search because of “off limits” problems and other conflicts of interest.
Canny, Bowen’s clients know that a seasoned Partner is involved in their assignment from start to finish. Each Partner is hands-on in every aspect of each assignment: client care, research, candidate identification and assessment, client presentations, and placement/closure issues.
Over 80% of our searches come from repeat business from clients which include such well respected companies as: General Electric, Pfizer, Balfour Beatty, Colfax, Danaher, The Hartford, IBM, International Paper, Lenovo, and Royal Dutch Shell.
Canny, Bowen also has an active practice recruiting for the portfolio companies of private equity firms as well as middle market companies and early stage privately held companies.
