The Orxestra® Method

Nothing is more important in the hiring process than ensuring fit. What differentiates TRANSEARCH and  translates into meaningful benefits for our clients is how we ensure ‘fit’. We use the TRANSEARCH Orxestra® Method (developed by John O. Burdett) to measure five different types of fit which guards against costly mishires.   

TRANSEARCH is a proud vetted member of the worldwide Association of Executive Search and Leadership Consultants (AESC) and adheres to the AESC Code of Professional Practice. 

Originally founded as Tier One Executive Search, we began operations in Detroit, Michigan in 2002. Our founding partner spent his early career working in the recruitment industry in Detroit for the worlds largest HR service company ($13 Billion in revenue). In 2004, we opened an office in Shanghai, PRC to address the expansion needs of our client companies. In 2007, we opened a research office in Mexico.

Over the 20 years, Tier One Executive Search became an established trusted partner in the most critical executive searches for major manufacturing companies worldwide. In 2019, Tier One Executive Search expanded into the automotive retail industry, dedicating a whole new practice to help auto dealerships find senior level talent. In a deal finalized in May of 2021, Tier One became part of TRANSEARCH, Intl., a top ten firm based in the U.K.
