About Us

 

 

The Sterling Group, a Veteran Owned Executive Search Firm, has teamed with small, medium and Fortune 500 companies in need of Middle Manager, Executive and C-Level talent.  As former Military Officers and Academy Graduates, we understand that institutional success is handed down from one generation of talent to the next.  Each partner at the Sterling Group has bridged the gap from military success to the boardroom and can personally testify to what is at stake for organizations in need of elite talent.

Team commitment and a desire to win is also at the heart of each of the Sterling Team Members.  We are all athletes who have formed strong bonds with teammates on the playing field and value team effort and success.  We operate now as a team, specializing in our own individual roles at The Sterling Group, to scout and draft talent and even help coach your team to long-term winning success.

Sterling was able to present me with world-class opportunities that gave me a chance to exercise the many skills I learned in the time I spent as a military officer. The development, coaching, and mentoring I received from Sterling was second to none, and allowed me to seamlessly transfer careers all while positively impacting an unbelievable company.
