About Us

Jim Nalepa & Associates is one of the nation's top independent executive search firms. We recognize that the timeless tenets of leadership, business acumen, and experience have no substitution.

Jim Nalepa & Associates was founded in 2001 to recapture the client centric vision that had become lost in the era of the "new economy." At Jim Nalepa & Associates, we are melding the new economy with the old.

The search industry has become concerned with mergers, IPO's and false technical solutions to sensitive people problems and issues of recruiting. The biggest firms in the search industry are now "shareholder focused" rather than "client focused."

Our Mission, Our Experience

Our Mission Statement: Attract leaders of character and achievement, who will make an immediate positive impact for our client companies.

The quality of our search process is paramount. Each search is performed and directed by Jim Nalepa personally. Our support staff averages over 25 years of research and candidate development experience. Our searches are not shuffled off to inexperienced underlings while the principal hunts for new business.

It is this hands-on approach, coupled with a performance based fee structure and the most significant guarantee in the industry that sets us apart. We deliver and guarantee excellence.

In recent years we have conducted over 100 executive searches for a wide range of clients and a wide range of positions from CEO to Plant Manager.
