Bespoke Partners Offers Two-Year Guarantee on Executive Placements, Doubling Industry Standard

Bespoke Partners, a leading provider of retained executive search and leadership advisory services for private equity backed software companies, today announced a Two-Year Guarantee on executive placements with the company’s unique leadership assessment service.

This press release features multimedia. View the full release here:

Doubling the industry standard of one-year guarantees on executive placements, the Two-Year Guarantee from Bespoke Partners ensures placed executives will remain with client companies for at least 24 months. The new guarantee is available to clients who utilize Bespoke’s FIT Profile™ behavioral assessments to assess leadership candidates and executive leadership teams.

“Bespoke is proud to deliver an industry-leading 99% success rate of placed executives who continue to lead client companies for at least two years,” said Eric Walczykowski, Bespoke’s Chief Executive Officer. “We recognize that our clients are looking for stability in these uncertain economic times, and the need for seasoned executives who can successfully achieve a firm’s investment thesis has never been more critical.

“Some search firms are regressing and decreasing their guarantees to only six months. We pledge to be our clients’ partner in human capital management, and our Two-Year Guarantee is a commitment to that partnership.”

The Two-Year Guarantee will go into effect on January 1, 2023 and will apply to all executive searches and placements conducted with a completed FIT Profile assessment. If the placed executive leaves the role or is terminated within 24 months based on the terms and conditions, the search will be redone at no cost to the client. More information is available at

The new guarantee will be featured in a webinar exploring mitigating the risks of making a bad C-suite hire with Hunt Scanlon on February 1, 2023. Register for the webinar here.

“Our FIT Profile assessment is the gold standard for ensuring an executive candidate will be the right fit for the company’s leadership team and enable the company to execute on the value creation plan,” Eric added. “We are so confident that the FIT Profile process will result in the right placement that we are backing it up with this guarantee and sharing human capital risk with our clients.”
