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.
