Our Method

Thorough and methodical yet nimble and intuitive, we operate with a sense of urgency that complements the nature of most portfolio company hires. We recognize that, fundamentally, private equity investing is about creating value. Our ability to understand an investment thesis and appreciate the challenges an executive team must overcome to achieve growth and profitability targets have been key to our success in working with investment groups.

Our candidates are sourced through thorough, intelligence-driven recruiting. We move quickly and recruit aggressively (aggressive in effort, not interaction). Caelum’s qualification methods are centered on performance, not experience, a seemingly small but very important distinction that enables our team to pinpoint top industry talent.

Building confidence and trust.


We are successful when our clients and candidates are successful. Performance is everything, and finding executives who know how to create value is what we do. Our long-term relationships are founded on confidence and trust, and we strive to serve with professionalism, integrity, and discretion in everything we do.


We are a professional organization engaged in recruiting and placing executive talent. As part of that process, our clients and candidates entrust our firm with sensitive information. Often working within niche industries that are highly connected, we recognize that our ability to maintain confidentiality is foundational to our business, and it’s something we take very seriously.
