Our Services

Torch Group is a national executive search firm near Cleveland, OH with extensive experience and expertise. Our specialty is filling key executive roles, from Directors and VP’s to the C-suite, for a variety of industries including Food and Beverage, Building Products, Foodservice, Manufacturing, and Software and Technology. With our functional knowledge, business proficiency, and thorough understanding of people, we are uniquely positioned to locate, recruit, and secure passive top talent using our proven Signature Search Process™.

We focus solely on five core functional practice areas:

Marketing Management and Marketing Communications: With considerable backgrounds in consumer and B2B marketing and marketing communications, our team knows exactly what knowledge, skills, and experience a successful candidate needs for a top marketing or marketing 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 a top sales or business development executive needs: realistic yet aggressive goal-setting and the ability to guide a team to success. We use our industry contracts, research abilities, and extensive sales industry experience to identify the people you need to fill positions such as VP, Sales Director, Chief Business Development Officer (CBDO), or National Sales Manager.

Corporate Communications and PR: We know how critical your corporate communications and PR executives are to your company’s success, and we have the contacts and experience required to recruit the top candidates. 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 industry, product management and development executives must be prepared to wear numerous hats. They need the ability to analyze market conditions, lay out a value-added, clearly differentiated vision for the product, and manage that product’s complete lifecycle. With decades of experience, our team knows how to find just the right candidates for positions such as VP of Product Development, Chief Innovation Officer (CIO), or Director of Product Management.

Digital and Social: Our newest functional practice area is Digital and Social positions. Our vast experience in placing sales, marketing, and communications executives, coupled with our rapid adoption of emerging technology, makes us uniquely qualified to recruit candidates for such vital top positions as VP of Digital Services, Digital Marketing Manager, or Chief Technology Officer (CTO).

Our Process

Any successful candidate will possess the needed knowledge, skills, and experience for the job, but these are only a start. At Torch Group, we know that the right candidate must also have the soft skills and values that fit with your unique corporate environment. 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

Starting with 150 identified strong candidates, we eliminate possibilities as we work through each step. At the end of our process, you will be presented with just 2 to 3 fully vetted finalists. In addition to a resume, you will receive a complete written interview report on each candidate, with our thoughts on that candidate’s career potential, strengths, developmental needs, and potential fit with your company.
