From Our Clients

Thank you for working with us to find a person for a new IT leadership role which we had a need for. We enjoyed working with you and you were very professional in analyzing our needs and bringing candidates to us to consider. You let us take our time to review everyone and did not push us for a decision and that I appreciated. Please feel free to use me as a reference.


Our company was concerned about lack of revenue opportunities due to the inconsistency of new software projects flowing into the company. The lack of software projects brought up another concern of not being able to attract and retain manpower to scale and grow the company, which inevitably resulted in losing opportunities.

We had little internal support and thought Empire Headhunters was the right fit to help us gain strategy and turn it into process. We chose Empire to help us because of their existing relationships, diverse range of resources and experience driving brands through multi-channels. After only 3 short months Empire delivered well over $300,000 USD in revenue which was over a 1,000 percent return on investment from what we paid upfront to retain them. Within 120 days, EHH generated an additional $1million in pipeline and helped us recruit over 20 software developers to help scale our team. We HIGHLY recommend their expertise.












From Our Candidates

I had the privilege of working with Empire Headhunters in securing a leadership role. As a Direct Hire Search Executive Empire was fabulous to work with. Their professionalism with me as a candidate was top notch, and they were always more than welcome to answer the many questions I had! Their drive and commitment to their work is impeccable. Even though it has been many years since I worked with their Founder, Paul Claxton, he still answers my questions and favors with sincerity and commitment to help me succeed!

It was a pleasure working with Empire Headhunters. I found them to be real go-getters but but always professional. They provided excellent resume improvement ideas and helped me to prepare for a pre-interview introductory document. They kept in contact throughout the entire process, giving me critical information to each important step. I had lots of questions and they diligently endeavored to find answers to them all. I heartily recommend them as headhunters and wish you all the best in your leadership role search.


I've had the pleasure of working with Empire in my recent search for a cross-functional executive level position that effectively combined multiple technical and business roles. They were terrific at not only identifying the positions that were a good match for my background, but also working with their clients to bring out those aspects of their needs that made them a good match for me. I'm very happy to recommend their services. 

EHH reached out to me over LinkedIn to connect with me and to see if they could help me find a position suited to my needs. They were very frank and upfront about what they wanted from me, but also made sure that I got what I needed as well. Ultimately they helped to place me with a great company that fits my professional needs, and culture preferences. I would recommend working with EHH, whether they contact you or you are looking work with a recruiter to find a position that fits you. 

Empire collaborated with me and various employers during my recent job search. They asked the right questions early and recalibrated my criteria as the search continued. They applied persistent energy from the early engagement through the follow-up portion after my transition. My new position is a perfect fit. I hope to keep EHH in my corner through all the tough boxing rounds of my career fight. I recommend them to anyone considering a leadership role. 

When Empire Headhunters first contacted me, I wasn’t in the market for a new position. After I sent them my resume, they sent me a position that sounded like it was written for me. EHH was very easy to work with and paired me with a job that I love. I really enjoy working for my new company and absolutely love my new position. EHH was extremely helpful and very easy to work with. I really appreciate everything the firm has done for me. I would definitely recommend Empire Headhunters to anyone who is looking, or even thinking about looking for a different position
