Mission & History

Our Mission A retained executive search firm serving Fortune 500 companies as well as, up and coming growth firms in markets all across the US. Search & Assessment Services identifies, evaluates, and presents top executives and management talent in areas such as marketing, operations, financial, and top ranked professional sales leaders that our clients would normally not otherwise meet. Nothing will affect your business more than the right hire; however, nothing will affect your business more than the wrong hire. We guide you through the process. Our History Founder, Steven Garofalo started in the search industry in January of 1995. In his first seven years in the search industry, he held the position of Vice President of Research & Recruiting for a national recruiting firm based out of the Washington, DC area. In 1997 assessment and consulting related services were assimilated into the search process. On February 25, 2002, Search & Assessment Services, Inc. "SAS" was formed. SAS focuses on three core areas. These three areas are Retained Executive Search, Assessment, and Executive Coaching. The goal of SAS is to bring top quality organizations together with the best candidates in the market place. SAS is proud of their methodology that allows them to identify and assess top candidates that their clients would not otherwise have uncovered. Their methodology/process includes understanding and documenting the company client's position requirements and corporate needs. The process then moves into the identification, assessment, and documentation of top candidates. The end result is creating the right/best long-term fit for both candidate and client company.
