About QLK

Quick Leonard Kieffer is composed of CEO Roger Quick and Chairman Michael Kieffer as well as talented managing partners and principals, who are supported by an excellent research and production team. To learn more about the search consultants who can best suite your needs, please visit the individual biographies.

The company was founded in 1999 by a group of experienced executive search consultants, committed to creating a niche firm that focused on quality execution for a select number of clients. It is why our partners chose not to work for larger firms and deliberately created this “right size” firm.

As a privately held firm, our only responsibility is to find the best leaders for you. Publicly traded search firms have different priorities. The stock market demands that they deliver revenue and profit. The result is that many more searches are assigned per consultant, expenses are treated as “profit centers,” and large bureaucracies are created that take away the ability to customize searches for clients. Because of our choice to remain privately held, clients and candidates receive our undivided attention. Our clients, not Wall Street, are our sole priority.

Each year, the firm has realized increased success. In fact, 75 percent of our search assignments come from repeat clients, while 90 percent of our follow-up client surveys rate our work as “superior to other firms they have used in the past.” We attribute this success to the dogged determination, market knowledge and depth of our executive search professionals. Our goal is to serve our clients beyond their immediate recruitment needs. We strive to be their partners for long-term success, based on our ability to build trusting and lasting relationships. We truly view our clients and our candidates as partners in search . . . for exceptional leaders.
