WHAT WE DO:

 

Warren and Morris Ltd., founded in 1983, provides retained and contained executive search services to early stage and rapid growth companies, as well as organizations involved with technology or new product convergence. We successfully place executives that build broadband/cable operators, cable/satellite networks, wireless service providers, digital media content/streaming service providers and new media ventures.  We partner with Founders, VC's and Board of Directors' on their early stage ventures in rapid growth areas (online retail and product distribution) and other burgeoning technology ventures. We are experts at filling senior level positions across all functional areas....


Our process is thorough.  We are of the mindset that the success of any search occurs in discovery.  We get to know our clients’ business intimately by adopting, pitching and qualifying by way of their vision, strategy and culture.  We work to get a crystal clear understanding of the business they are in and get to know their key competitors.   With great care placed on the relationship itself, we develop a strong interactive partnership, ensuring that we will match the right person to that culture.  We identify and methodically attract and vet these people, so by the time we submit them, it’s just a matter of the “x-factor”.  We firmlybelieve in “Quality versus Quantity” and that a successful, lasting placement does not come from an endless stream of quasi-qualified, ad response candidates… The reality is, it only takes one.  One, thoroughly vetted, thoroughly qualified, hit-the-ground running candidate.  This is our specialty. 

 

The demand for quality leadership has always been intense, and it is never more so than now.  Candidates that possess the leadership talent as well as functional or related industry expertise are out there and ready to talk, they just don’t exist on job boards.   We do not post jobs.  We network.  We get recommendations from leaders in the industry.  We roll out the red carpet, attract and entice those that aren’t currently looking, those that are currently succeeding.  Thisis the only candidate you want.  Why would you want the unqualified, unhappy, job-board candidate who is changing jobs every couple of years?  Why would you want the resume that’s on every job board?   Why would you want to add more work to your day?  We’ve never quite understood the mindset of working with 5 staffing agencies, getting buried in unqualified talent, putting more work on your own shoulders.  The industry has changed, there are firms that scour job boards and can bury you in unqualified candidates, adding to your workload instead of taking it off your shoulders.  They’ll bury you in busy-work, until they finally get that one ad-response that works.  This is not how we operate.  Call us old-school, but our search philosophy is a simple one.  

Entrepreneurs ourselves, we understand the unique demands of building a business in this information age. We fully appreciate, and operate on the premise that: "the success of any business is directly correlated to the quality of the people who manage that enterprise".  We identify and methodically attract and vet these people, so by the time we submit them, it’s just a matter of the “x-factor”.  We firmlybelieve in “Quality versus Quantity” and that a successful, lasting placement does not come from an endless stream of quasi-qualified candidates… The reality is, it only takes one.  That one, thoroughly vetted, thoroughly qualified, hit-the-ground running candidate.  This is our specialty.
