60% of the Fortune 50. 50% of the Fortune 100.

Many of the most prominent companies, nonprofits and universities in the world choose Heyman Associates when hiring their communications and marketing leaders.

Heyman Associates has over 30 years of experience conducting senior-level executive searches for premier organizations. As our firm has evolved – and particularly over the past decade – we have taken on more and more work in the marketing field, which shares many of communications’ concerns around branding and reputation management.

We are proud not only of our corporate clients – we have served 60% of Fortune 50 and 50% of Fortune 100 companies – but also of our many noted academic, medical center, and nonprofit clients. We take particular pride in the fact that our concentration in corporate communications and marketing has extended across industries.

Selected Completed Searches

The job titles speak for themselves: broad, senior-level roles that are critical to our clients' long-term success.

Heyman Associates places communications, public affairs, and marketing professionals in leadership roles at corporations, major nonprofits, foundations, industry associations and colleges/universities. Although we work on searches at the director level and above, our hands-on approach to executive search is ideally suited to filling senior-most roles in these functional areas.
