“Claire Spence is one of the few that I know in the 40 years that has met my highest expectations time after time.

“I have had the opportunity of being both the hiring manager and a candidate, thus having dealt with executive recruiters on both sides of the spectrum. However, and quite unfortunately there are only a handful of recruiters whom I can honestly attest to their professionalism, knowledge, thoroughness and above all integrity. Ms. Claire Spence is most definitely one of these whom I highly think of and who more than anything brings a very personal perspective to a search; a crucial trait when identifying talent. Ms. Spence is also not afraid to bring “out of the box” recommendations and substantiating her assessments, bringing alternative viewpoints founded on solid due-diligence crucial in today’s crisis environment. Unlike many of her colleagues who seek the simple method of matching a candidate to the “bullet points” of a position, Ms. Spence identifies the vertical skills and intangibles that will most certainly become the gold standard as we maneuver into a new future.”

I have been with Joseph Chris Partners since 2002 when I started as a recruiter. From there, I worked my way up to Partner, Senior Partner, and Executive Partner all within one year of becoming a Partner. That was a whirlwind! My years here have been some of the best years of my life, and I’m still going strong. In all those years, I never felt like I was selling anything. When you choose the right companies to work for, you know that company inside and out, you truly believe in them, their culture, and consider yourself an extension of that company, there isn’t anything to sell.

I am driven by a strong desire to build mutually beneficial, lasting business relationships. I take the time to get to know my clients. I learn their corporate culture, vision, and methodology, with the goal of helping them to establish a strong upper echelon of management.

Having started with Joseph Chris Partners in 2002, I have many years of experience in the real estate, construction, and development industries and have enabled my clients to achieve greater market exposure, recognition, and success. I work with a wide array of clients throughout the U.S. and internationally, heavily focused on management, director and C-Level positions and executives within all skill-sets throughout our niche.

The ability to thoroughly research a market and identify peak performers is my strong suit. The knowledge to assess personality, career motivation and technical skills, compounded with effective communication, assure that my clients receive the utmost quality and ROI.

I have consistently ranked among the Top Recruiters across all industries in the nation by the Texas Association of Personnel Consultants and have won multiple awards and recognition by industry associations and my peers. I’ve consistently ranked among the highest producers at Joseph Chris Partners for many years, which comes from my ability to keep clients by proving results and respecting relationships. I am a past Legislative Co-Chair for the Houston Area Association of Personnel Consultants and I worked closely with the Texas Association of Personnel Consultants Board of Directors in Austin meeting with State Senators and Representatives on issues that impact the Search Firm world. I am a devoted mother who loves to travel with my growing family, I am happily engaged to my very best friend in the world. We love to travel when time allows, but mostly, we love the Texas Southwest where we reside between some of the most beautiful hills and valleys in the State.

How do companies know which Executive Search Firm is best for them?

In today’s world, it is a candidate driven market.  Candidates are getting called repeatedly by recruiters and quite a large amount of them end up with multiple offers to choose from in the end.  As a company searching for talent, the decision to hire a firm to help can be a daunting one.
