Search Fees


The IPS team has successfully filled four key positions for me during my tenure as Vice President of Fleet for ServiceMaster. They do a masterful job of understanding and developing the requirements of the position, the urgency and sensitivity of the search, and then finding the best talent in the industry.

IPS is undoubtedly the most strategic firm I’ve had the pleasure to work with in my twenty plus years of experience. IPS operates from a highly collaborative perspective, ensuring engagement from their clients. They presented great world class candidates during our CEO search. Our experience has proved that IPS executives have cross functional knowledge and are able to recruit and present superior talent. Their commitment to service, support and results make them an exceptional choice for leadership search in any capacity. Janelle Strohmeyer, Human Resources Director, Metrolink

Professional search fees for our services are 33% of the candidate’s total first 12 months’ cash compensation, including base salary and targeted cash bonuses. Professional fees are billed on a retained basis.

Consultant and candidate travel expenses are billed at cost, as incurred.

Professional search fees are generally billed in three equal installments: 1/3 to begin the search, 1/3 at 30 days, and the final 1/3 at 60 days.

Direct expenses are also billed as incurred, without mark-up.

You have the right to cancel the search at any time, however, any invoices already rendered are payable in full, as are all out-of-pocket expenses incurred on your behalf.
