Our Services

Torch Group is a national executive search firm with extensive experience and deep expertise. We aren’t your average headhunter in Houston, TX. We specialize in filling key executive roles, from Directors and VP’s to the C-suite, for a wide range of industries including Food and Beverage, Software and Technology, Foodservice, Manufacturing, and Building Products. Our functional knowledge, business acumen, and profound understanding of people allow us to identify, recruit, and procure passive top talent in a unique way, through our proven Signature Search Process™.

We focus exclusively on five core functional practice areas:

Marketing Management and Marketing Communications: With strong backgrounds in consumer and B2B marketing and marketing communications, our team understands exactly what skills and experience are necessary for a top marketing or communications position in your company, such as VP, Marketing Communications Director, Chief Marketing Officer (CMO), or Customer Experience Officer.

Sales and Business Development: At Torch Group, we know what it takes to be a top sales or business development executive: aggressive but realistic goal-setting and the ability to lead a team to success. We rely on our industry contracts, research abilities, and extensive experience in the sales industry to recruit just the right candidates for positions such as Sales Director, Chief Business Development Officer (CBDO), VP, or National Sales Manager.

Corporate Communications and PR: We know how crucial your corporate communications and PR executives are to your company’s success, and we have the industry experience and contacts to recruit the candidates you need. Whether you need a Director of Media Relations or a Chief Communications Officer (CCO), Torch Group is here for you.

Product Management and Development: Regardless of your industry, product management and development executives must wear many hats. They must have the skills to analyze market conditions, lay out a differentiated and value-added vision for the product, and manage the full lifecycle of that product. With decades of experience, we are able to identify just the right candidates for a position such as VP of Product Development, Director of Product Management, or Chief Innovation Officer (CIO).

Digital and Social: Digital and Social positions are our latest addition. Our considerable experience in placing sales, marketing, and communications executives, coupled with our early adoption of new technology, has allowed us to get ahead of the crowd. We are the ideal choice to recruit candidates for such critical top positions as Digital Marketing Manager, Chief Technology Officer (CTO), or VP of Digital Services.

Our Process

Having the necessary knowledge, skills, and experience for a position is just the beginning. At Torch Group, we know that a successful candidate must also possess the soft skills and values that fit with your unique organizational culture. That’s why we created our proven system, the eight-step Signature Search Process™:

  • Client intake and discovery
  • Custom search strategy
  • Passive candidate research
  • Candidate calibration review
  • Direct sourcing and recruiting
  • Candidate evaluations and presentations
  • References and offer
  • Post-hire check-ins

We start with 150 strong candidates. As we work through each step, we narrow the field. At the end of the process, we will present you with just 2 to 3 fully vetted finalists. Besides each finalist’s resume, we will provide you with a complete written interview report with our thoughts on that candidate’s career potential, strengths, developmental needs, and potential fit with your company.
