Our Six Guiding Principles

What we are

What we aren't

We are a privately owned boutique operation

We are not a public conglomerate

We listen, we research, and we learn

We do not assume we know the nuances of your business

We find the needle

We don't send the entire haystack

We are about accomplishments

We don’t abandon professionalism or ethical standards to achieve our goals

We celebrate and deliver diversity

We don't just pay lip service

We specialize in selecting Human Capital leaders in all facets of Human Resources in every industry and across the country

We don't do everything else

We do executive search

We don't do outplacement, executive coaching, psychological assessments and/or ancillary services

We are the best

We don't need to be the biggest


  • “I couldn’t be happier with our new VP Total Rewards.  He is a perfect (and I don’t say that lightly) fit for OSI.  He is smart, productive and people love working with him.
    I just met our Compensation Manager about a week ago, and I am equally excited about him.  Seems like another very good hire. Thanks for all you did to help me build the foundations of a world-class compensation team…and thanks for checking in to make sure all is well.  It is much appreciated.”

  • “The search was done timely and professionally — the communication was excellent.  I would recommend Tower because for them it is all about the people, which is the number one investment.”

  • “Chris Rose was very helpful all throughout the process and her input helped me overcome obstacles in my path.  I really enjoyed interacting with her.  I would work with her any day and hopefully will again.”

  • “Having relocated East in support of a career advancement opportunity for my spouse, I found myself in the job seeker's market. A colleague introduced me to Tower consultants, a group working to identify candidates for an opportunity in my new city.  My experience working with the Tower Consultants team was extraordinary. The knowledgeable boutique HR firm is top notch.  As a candidate I was treated with the utmost courtesy and professionalism throughout the entire selection process, they even worked with me to insure I was thoroughly prepared for the interview day and knew what to expect. As an experienced Human Resources professional, should I again be in the market or be looking to fill an HR role on my own team I wouldn't think twice about engaging Tower Consultants. Thank you for the excellent experience, I recommend Tower Consultants to both companies and candidates and hope to work with them again in the future.”

  • “It was a very professional search very much tailored around the needs of the client (me).  I was pleased with the way time zones were managed and I never felt out of the loop.  The quality of candidates was excellent as was the understanding of our needs. I would use you again because of your professionalism, reach and the quality of your
    consultants.  I would recommend you because you get results.”

    • Formerly SVP, Head of Global HR Shared Services, Endurance Services Ltd.

  • “Amtrak faced unique circumstances that other highly regarded executive search recruiters and companies believed were challenges they could not meet. Not Chris Rose and not Tower Consultants. Chris attacked our needs by thoroughly understanding our strategy, national mission, business values, and fit criteria. Plus, she is just fun to work with. She successfully placed two senior Human Capital leaders that are making an immediate difference to our bottom line and our people. Market feedback was that Chris proved a great ambassador for our company as well and she kept me informed every step of the way.”
