Executive Search Firm

Why Choose August Venture Talent

We search exhaustively and use perceptive insight to find the right hire for your team.

When You Need to Nail the Hire, Choose AVT. Here's Why.

When we lead the search, nothing comes between you and the perfect hire. We consult with you to identify the characteristics of your ideal candidate and target market. We then begin a strategic candidate search using best practice research and sourcing methods, market intelligence, and a deep network of contacts and referral sources. Our full-disclosure candidate engagement and highly perceptive assessment results in hires that leave both the client and newly hired leader with a deep sense of satisfaction and strong prospects for a rewarding long-term relationship.

Depth of Expertise

Our two decades of highly-effective recruiting covers a diverse range of hiring needs, across industries, functions and geographic regions, often for newly created or hard-to-fill roles, and roles in emerging fields. We can handle your most difficult hiring challenge.


Consistent progress reports provide clients with a complete view of the recruiting search process through data-driven reporting. This will soon become a real-time online tool, enhancing the client’s ownership of the results and ability to make informed hiring decisions.

Top Candidates

High-caliber professionals are very selective in responding to recruiters – and yet most of the people we introduce to clients are not actively looking. We are frequently informed by new candidates that we cut through the noise with our intelligent, relevant approach.

I’m extremely selective in working with recruiters and adding new team members to our rapidly growing, disruptive, ecommerce startup. It says a lot that Donna has been our go-to for several critical hires over the past year!

Extensive Research & Sourcing

We have a multi-faceted, no-stone-unturned approach to finding potential hires. While we can gain introductions through our expansive network throughout North America and beyond, our research-based sourcing uncovers even the most elusive prospects.

Proven Results

The most reliable indicator of effectiveness is the number of clients that return for a repeat performance. This past year, 90% of our work represented searches from the same companies, and the clients that have not yet returned, assure us they will.

Data Driven & Agile Approach

We are disciplined but not rigid; we adapt. At August Venture Talent, we are continuously applying new techniques to our work. We watch the data to assess the search process and change tactics whenever necessary. We do whatever it takes to find your hire.

With the right people, great companies can accomplish phenomenal objectives. We want to make sure every hire is exceptional.
