Carl J. Taylor & Co. is a management consulting firm specializing in executive search. Our practice develops and maintains close working relationships with a limited number of organizations. Given that most hiring decisions depend on an individual’s “fit” within an organization, we strive to know the personality of the employer. The satisfactory completion of difficult searches, the development of an in depth knowledge of our clients’ working environments, and numerous “repeat requests” by our clients to conduct searches for positions throughout their organizations all demonstrate our success.

Given Carl’s personal experience in Management Consulting, the firm initially focused its search efforts on serving professional services firms (management consulting, engineering, and public accounting). However, as his professional associates and clients moved to other corporate environments, Carl’s search practice has expanded to serve a variety of organizations with their senior level and one-of-a-kind search needs. A large number of our assignments are conducted in the Texas market (Dallas, Fort Worth, Austin, Houston and San Antonio), but we have successfully worked with clients throughout the country.
