Edward Fleischman founded The Execu|Search Group in 1985 with a focus on serving accounting firms, boutique hedge funds, and private equity funds. Through his leadership, Execu|Search has since grown to become an industry-leading professional recruitment and temporary staffing firm serving multiple lines of business in several markets across the country.
Prior to starting The Execu|Search Group, Ed, a CPA, was the Director of Human Resources for Spicer & Oppenheim, an international accounting firm based in New York. He also served as a senior member of a national recruiting firm after beginning his career in public accounting.
During his tenure as CEO, Ed regularly counseled the firm’s clients in strategic senior-level hiring, structuring of compensation packages, and human resources issues.
A firm believer in professional ethics, Ed feels privileged to have led a company that holds itself to the highest industry standards and prides itself on over 35 years of integrity, culture, quality, and service excellence. He also believes that career development is one of the best investments employers can make. “Our growth is the result of the firm’s long-standing commitment to transparency, responsiveness, accountability, and entrepreneurship,” he says. “However, these values start with our staff. As a result, providing employees with opportunities to make an impact and advance within the company has been a key element in our growth.”
As Executive Chairman and a member of the Board, Ed will serve in an advisory role to the Executive Leadership team.
Ed holds a Bachelor's degree in accounting from Fairleigh Dickinson University, and enjoys traveling and exploring new countries, playing golf, and spending time with his wife and two children.
