April 8th, 2021

The Boston Business Journal recently recognized Beacon Hill's offices in Boston, MA as one of the "Largest Executive Search Firms" in the area! Beacon Hill placed fourth on the list, moving up from the fifth spot in 2020.

The BBJ ranked the companies according to 2020 Massachusetts office executive-search revenue, naming only the top 22 to their list of prominent companies.

“We are proud of our success in delivering executive-level talent to the area’s top companies,” stated Andrew Wang, CEO. “Executive Search is a prominent part of our service offering to clients.”

For the purposes of the list, executive search refers to the placement of individuals in full-time executive-level jobs paying at least $100,000/year. The primary fee basis refers to 50% of the firm's business. Average executive-search salary refers to placements made by the firm's Massachusetts office(s) in 2020.

Job posting data from 2020 indicates that 5% of jobs in Massachusetts advertised a salary of $170,000 to $270,000. This accounts for over 4,400 unique job postings during the year, in the professional skill categories that Beacon Hill supports, including technical/IT, healthcare, life sciences, finance, accounting, HR, administrative, and legal. Meanwhile, the average advertised salary for Massachusetts-based roles in 2020 was well under the level necessary to be considered executive, at $80,300.
