Managing Director

Atlanta, GA — Full time


Why we are different:

  • Macro-Management Philosophy: We don’t track hours in or calls out, we value our employees for the relationships they build and the experience they bring to the table.
  • Flexible Work Environment: We have doors you can shut when your coworker keeps talking about her cat (most of us have dogs anyway). Each Managing Director has the opportunity to work a hybrid schedule with 21 (and sometimes more) paid company holidays.
  • Generalist Firm: We cover every industry from Nuclear Engineering to Higher Education, giving you plenty of room to play. Go after an industry you’re already in or follow a passion.
  • Teaming Culture: Executive Search can feel a lot like living on an island with your volleyball named Wilson, but not here at HGI. Our Managing Directors are happy to travel and help win business.

Harvard Group International (HGI) provides multiple interdependent areas of consulting in support of our clients’ growth and sustainable competitiveness. Managing Director opportunities are available on the below team:

  • Executive Search: HGI offers Executive Search Services for high- impact executive leadership and effective managers to meet the challenges of shifting market opportunities, increased competition, pricing pressures and decreased resources. This practice segment is ranked within the top 10% of all US executive search firms.

HGI is a well-run, lean, entrepreneurial organization where everyone sells. We take pride in our strong teaming culture, get-it-done drive, and sense of urgency that enables us to win and consistently gain market share.
