about us

CXO Connections is a retained executive search and consulting firm headquartered in Austin, Texas.  We work with Fortune 500 companies as well as startups, acting as their strategic partner and change agent to deliver exceptional talent and consulting support. 

Our business model is based on company knowledge, cultural fit, and a passion for success.  As former executives, our unique perspective is based on having held the positions for which we are searching. We understand the requirements from true experience and know the right questions to ask and the "gotchas" to avoid, allowing us to decipher and qualify potential candidates.  With the operational experience and battle scars to prove it, we believe we conclude searches more effectively. 

We offer the following approach to executive search and management consulting: 

Executive Search 

We begin with knowledge of the business itself and what it needs in order to be successful.   We then work together to agree on the attributes, skills, and experience required for a given position.  Finally, we spend an 'above-average' amount of time and attention on cultural fit. 

Our approach brings proven talent and the right chemistry to ensure success, and our knowledge of the client's business helps reduce the overall search time by being able to more effectively qualify and better communicate the needs of the company to prospective candidates. 

The result is exceptional candidates who not only exceed the business requirements of a particular position, but who also offer a personal profile to ensure the best possible cultural fit. 

Management Consulting

CXO Connections takes the business knowledge gained in helping clients with executive search and leverages this experience to deliver ongoing support where clients need help, i.e., grow revenues,  cut costs, improve profitability.  Our interim 'bench' of executive talent offers deep operational experience in finance, technology, sales, marketing, business development, and professional services to support our clients' short-term talent or interim business needs.
