executive Search & Career Solutions for the Surety Industry

Surety Executive Search was founded by Mike Waldron after spending years working with a nationally recognized recruiting firm.  As a boutique search firm dedicated to the relatively small but very profitable surety segment of the property and casualty insurance industry, we have formed close and very personal relationships with our clients and candidates through our comprehensive understanding of the small community that we recruit in. We're not just executive recruiters, we're industry insiders. 

Our firm knows our markets, we know the key players, and the history that has shaped what it is today.   Over the period of many years we have helped our clients, large and small, grow through the hiring of key personnel at all levels. The surety industry has changed a great deal over the years, through mergers and acquisitions, departures from the industry, and the re-emergence of new and impactful players. We've seen the effect that the economy and questionable decision-making has had on our industry and we know the value of top industry talent and its importance to your organization.   

Surety Executive Search Consultants is here for both our clients and our candidates. We save our clients time and money because we understand what they're looking for. We streamline the hiring process by only providing a select few candidates that are uniquely suited to excel in your areas of need. The industry is a small one and we respect the discretion necessary to assist both our clients and our candidates. Qualified talent is at a premium and Surety Executive Search Consultants can be your partner.
