Though we are networked into the web of the Northwest’s top executives, our clients also include some of the premier companies in the U.S. We conduct executive staffing searches, Advisor/Team lift-outs and provide Acquisitions Consulting services.
We have been helping companies find the optimal candidates since 1995. RAH Financial's search team understands the urgency and importance of finding the right candidate for key executive positions.
The principals of RAH Financial are Roger and Lea Hendrix, who together manage the business of RAH Financial. Roger is ultimately responsible for managing all recruiting efforts, and Lea is responsible for many business and customer service aspects of the practices. Lea also serves as the firm's IT Manager. In addition to the principals, RAH Financial employs the services of additional recruiters and researchers, who are assigned to specific recruiting projects as best fits their backgrounds and areas of expertise.
To every client, we bring extensive Financial Services industry knowledge and business perspective, embedded in a consultative process of helping companies find the right talent for key executive positions. The executive search consultants at RAH Financial invest the time up front to understand your business and its mission, culture, strategic drivers, core competencies, and organizational dynamics, including the personalities, working styles, values, and agendas of people who interact with the executive position.
Because we are a retained search firm, we take the risk out of executive recruitment by guaranteeing a perfect fit for the first year of employment. We are specialists in the Financial Services industry with expertise in the identification and recruitment of a wide range of executives within Investment Companies, Fund Managers and Wealth Managers. With increasing numbers of companies and organizations recognizing the strengths of women in key executive roles, the competition for female executives is rising steadily. Our database of female executives helps us connect you with well-qualified women executives to take your organization to the next level.
