Benchmark Leadership Search
Since 2004

Wind River Associates has earned its reputation by identifying and recruiting carefully selected high-potentials.

These “A-Players” usually lack the time and motivation to sort through the clutter of online help-wanted advertising or to respond to other passive sourcing techniques. You must find them. They will rarely find you.
Our methods are most effective:
At the leadership level (positions with total potential compensation of at least $100,000).
For mission-critical openings that must be filled by candidates sourced from the top-performing 10% of their professional peer group.
When traditional recruiting methods, because of sensitivity, selectivity, or other considerations, are not the right solution, or after they have failed to deliver the desired results.
When a client believes that full payment to its talent acquisition partner should follow, not precede, a successful search.


To ensure our clients’ human capital landscape is positioned for the strategic realization of their visions and missions.


To relentlessly apply principled and proven human capital acquisition processes on behalf of any client and for any client recruiting assignment until the fit is perfect.
