Our Services

Torch Group is a nationwide executive search firm. With deep knowledge and extensive experience, we are able to fill key executive roles, from Directors and VP’s to the C-suite, across a wide range of industries including Foodservice, Food and Beverage, Manufacturing, Building Products, and Software and Technology. We use our business insight, functional knowledge, and understanding of people to help us identify, recruit, and acquire passive top talent in a truly singular way, using our proven Signature Search Process.

We are tightly focused on five core functional practice areas:

Marketing Management and Marketing Communications: Our team members have deep backgrounds in consumer and B2B marketing and marketing communications. We understand exactly what knowledge, skills, and experience are required of a successful candidate for a key marketing or marketing communications position such as Marketing Communications Director, Customer Experience Officer, VP, or Chief Marketing Officer (CMO).

Sales and Business Development: Top executives in sales and business development have a targeted skillset. They know how to set goals that are aggressive but realistic, and how to lead their teams to success. At Torch Group, we combine our research abilities, contacts, and extensive industry experience to find just the right leaders for positions such as National Sales Manager, Sales Director, VP, or Chief Business Development Officer (CBDO).

Corporate Communications and PR: We understand the vital role that corporate communications and PR executives play in your company’s success, and we have the industry experience and contacts to recruit just the right candidates. We can help you fill such roles as Director of Media Relations or Chief Communications Officer (CCO).

Product Management and Development: Product management and development executives do many things. They must be capable of analyzing market conditions, creating and explaining a differentiated and value-added product vision, and managing the entire lifecycle of the product. With decades of experience, we know where to find the right person for a position such as VP of Product Development, Director of Product Management, or Chief Innovation Officer (CIO).

Digital and Social: We recently added our Digital and Social positions focus area. Our considerable experience in placing sales, marketing, and communications executives, paired with our rapid adoption of emerging technology, makes us uniquely qualified to recruit candidates for such critical top positions as Digital Marketing Manager, Chief Technology Officer (CTO), or VP of Digital Services.

Our Process

At Torch Group, we know that it is not enough for a candidate to possess the right knowledge, skills, and experience for the role. The ideal choice also has soft skills and values that blend with your individual corporate environment. That’s why we have created a proven system known as our Signature Search Process™, which features eight separate steps:

  • 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 by selecting 150 strong potential candidates. We narrow the field at each step, until we present you with just 2 to 3 fully vetted finalists. We provide you with not only resumes, but also a detailed written report on each finalist. This report features our opinions on that candidate’s career potential, strengths, developmental needs, and potential fit with your organization.
