About Lonergan Partners

The trusted source for technology leaders

Lon­er­gan Part­ners is a trust­ed advi­sor to top tech­nol­o­gy com­pa­nies in the Sil­i­con Val­ley and around the world. Our expe­ri­enced part­ners pro­vide retained exec­u­tive search ser­vices work­ing to recruit CEOs and C-Lev­el exec­u­tives in high tech. Since 2001, we have helped hun­dreds of clients accom­plish trans­for­ma­tive change.

Our Vision

In 2001, Mark Lon­er­gan found­ed Lon­er­gan Part­ners to be a new kind of search firm. From his back­ground man­ag­ing the Sil­i­con Val­ley offices of indus­try pio­neer Hei­drick & Strug­gles, he chose to pro­vide the mar­ket with an enhanced lev­el of exec­u­tive recruit­ment sup­port. His vision was to com­bine the pro­fes­sion­al­ism, rig­or and breadth of resources found at the large mul­ti-nation­als with the per­son­al engage­ment, urgency, and height­ened com­mit­ment to client out­comes found at the best bou­tiques. The result:is a unique­ly pow­er­ful search capa­bil­i­ty, ded­i­cat­ed to devel­op­ing mean­ing­ful client part­ner­ships with the pow­er to help change the future of the clients we serve.

What's It Like to Work with Us?

You’ll part­ner with an expe­ri­enced adviser

You will work direct­ly with one or more of our expe­ri­enced part­ners through­out the entire search process. Client sup­port is our pri­or­i­ty and each of our part­ners has a proven track record of suc­cess work­ing with both top pub­lic tech­nol­o­gy com­pa­nies as well as the high­est qual­i­ty pri­vate­ly backed com­pa­nies. Our part­ners per­son­al­ly pro­vide clients with the ben­e­fits of their expe­ri­ence and deep roots in the tech­nol­o­gy com­mu­ni­ty. Check out what some of them have to say.

Client support is our priority

We know high tech

We are head­quar­tered in Sil­i­con Val­ley, and our part­ners live and work among the tech­nol­o­gists, entre­pre­neurs, and investors of the Val­ley. Our work over many years has enabled us to build deep under­stand­ing in net­work­ing, semi­con­duc­tors, elec­tron­ics, soft­ware, inter­net, and the wire­less com­mu­ni­ca­tions markets.

Our access is global

We access lead­er­ship tal­ent wher­ev­er it grows. You will nev­er be con­strained by the off-lim­its” bound­aries that criss-cross the prac­tices of the largest mul­ti-nation­al search firms. We work close­ly with an exclu­sive list of top com­pa­nies in their mar­kets, and we bring you the peo­ple you need to know from wher­ev­er they live and work today. Not only can we source tal­ent from any­where, but we also work with clients around the globe.
