Carl J. Taylor & Co. is a management consulting firm specializing in retained executive search. Our practice develops and maintains close working relationships with public and private companies and professional services firms. Given that most hiring decisions depend on an individual’s “fit” within an organization, we strive to know the personality of the employer. Most of our search assignments in recent years have included a diversity requirement or preference.

During the past 20+ years, Carl has conducted searches for large and small organizations throughout the U.S. In many cases, we are engaged after a company has exhausted its internal networking efforts or the company has pursued other recruitment efforts which were not successful.
