What Our Clients Say About Us:

“Leonard and his professional staff went through an exhaustive process in finding our new Executive Director. That alone would have been sufficient, however, Leonard’s services continued after the offer was made and accepted by the candidate. In fact, Leonard was in continuous contact with me regarding the candidate’s performance and was instrumental in ensuring that we hired and retained the exact right person for the job. Leonard’s process for selection and assurance of finding the right person is unparalleled.”

Chairman of the Board of Directors, International Parking Institute (IPI)

“Working through the executive recruitment process with Leonard Pfeiffer and Company was a lesson in professionalism and in how a senior executive should be selected. Leonard and Elizabeth ensured the committee stayed on task and focused on the issues of real importance to the organization. There is no doubt the best candidate was chosen – it’s almost not possible otherwise with the processes and diligence that were used.”

Search Committee Member, Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation

“Leonard Pfeiffer & Company is a very responsive group. They are excellent at what they do…consultative yet yields to client’s needs. I would definitely use them again!”

Search Committee Chairperson, NPES

“Leonard Pfeiffer & Company partnered with us to take our professional association successfully into the future by providing a diverse and well qualified group of candidates for our Chief Executive Officer position. He and his team were highly professional, attentive to detail, and responsive to the search committee’s needs. They were particularly aware of the strain that this type of process has on very busy volunteer leaders and their hard work behind the scenes made this an excellent experience for all involved. Because of their efforts, we are truly prepared to move our association into the future. Many thanks.”

Search Committee Member, American Society of Radiologic Technologists

“We are very impressed by the thoroughness of your process and knowledge of Association Management.”

Board Member, National Association of REALTORS

“Leonard selected a diverse group of candidates based on our committee’s input and his reading of what was really needed. He guided us to the right selection and we could not be happier. Gary LaBranche was not looking for a new position and I think it took Leonard to attract him to ACG. Gary is exactly what we needed and Leonard knew that before any of the rest of us.”

Search Committee Member, Association for Corporate Growth

“Everyone who has worked with you and your firm on this has been so impressed.”

CEO, AdvaMed

“Leonard Pfeiffer & Company assisted us to develop a remarkable understanding of our needs and identified candidates that could all have met our needs. We had the opportunity to pick the best amongst qualified individuals. What was thought to be a grueling ordeal turned out to be a valuable experience thanks to your input and sound advice. I would not hesitate to work with you again, or to refer you to any firm seeking your assistance in identifying candidates for a specific position. Our CEO is meeting every challenge head-on and implementing a rigorous work code – and we’re all having fun!”

Search Committee Member, NMEDA

“Leonard Pfeiffer & Company put together a very diverse, well qualified group of candidates that a trade association would have found nearly impossible to do on its own. The search process was well organized, streamlined and saved hundred’s of volunteer hours through their efficiency.”

Search Committee Member, Arizona Association of REALTORS

Marty Allen, Search Committee Member, WomenHeart

“I have had the distinct pleasure of working with the Pfeiffer team on several occasions (as a candidate and as a client). Leonard and his team have consistently displayed enormous sensitivity to all parties. In their most recent search for my company, they identified several, excellent candidates for me to consider. As importantly, the right decision was made on time. Nicely done, Leonard!”

President/CEO, MRIS

“You should know how very much we appreciate the very strong candidates your company brought to our attention. You not only had a large list of candidates from all over the USA, but qualified beyond our expectations. Your promptness and your being able to adjust to our time table was much appreciated.”

Search Committee Member, Indiana Association of REALTORS

“I’m very pleased we chose Leonard for our CEO search. He and his capable and congenial staff took time to listen to our needs and then set out to find several excellent candidates. I would call Leonard in a heartbeat should I ever need to engage an executive search professional again.”

Former Chair, American Forests

“Our search committee worked on a very successful search for a new executive director for our organization.  Our selection committee recommendation was accepted unanimously by the Board following his presentation by Leonard.  Our experience working with Leonard and his organization was very positive and productive.  He identified a field of very attractive candidates for the position and kept the presentations well organized and the narrowing down of candidates very timely.  He accomplished this difficult assignment with right amount of humor and positive direction to make the work by the committee effective and pleasant.  I recommend him very highly.”

Search Committee Chair, Northern Virginia Association of REALTORS

“Leonard Pfeiffer know our industry and knows all the key players in our real estate space. He has recruiting down to a science. Leonard has been the consummate professional recruiter of choice for many key positions in our industry, has a stellar reputation, and an excellent team.”

President & CEO, MLSListings, Inc.

“We were very pleased with our investment in Leonard Pfeiffer & Co. during our CEO search. Our organization was founded in 1891 and our selection of only the fifth senior executive in our 125 history was a major decision.  Leonard and his team took the time to know us and understand our past and our present. They worked hard until the perfect candidate presented himself. If results matter, you can trust Leonard Pfeiffer & Co.”

Chairman of the Search Committee/President-Elect, Greater Nashville Association of REALTORS

“Leonard and his team made our national search for our CEO, streamlined, efficient, and a huge success.  Our search committee worked closely with Leonard, Zara, and the team to narrow the field and find the best of the best!  We were successful and I would highly recommend Leonard Pfeiffer & Company.  They truly know their business!”

President, National Women’s Council of REALTORS

“I have used Leonard Pfeiffer & Company for several major executive searches for both Realtor Associations and MLS organizations. He has uniformly done an outstanding job finding just the right person for the open position. For example, on one search we only had three people respond to the posting for the CEO position. Thankfully we had Leonard and his team on the assignment. They were able to come up with a pool of 70 great candidates for our consideration, and then helped us cull that down to a short list for interviews and ultimate selection. Leonard Pfeiffer & Co know everybody who is looking – or should be looking – for the best jobs in the real estate space. I can’t imagine doing an executive search without their assistance.”

Chairman, MRIS

“As a candidate, working with Leonard and Zara was an absolute pleasure.  They were professional, responsive, organized and kept in constant communication.  I would highly recommend Leonard Pfeiffer & Company.”


“Based on their vast experience, Pfeiffer and Company has a thorough understanding of Executive Searches at every level of the spectrum. The many Executive Searches led by Pfeiffer and Company for our Local, State and National Associations over the years have all been handled with a great deal of organization, confidentiality and have resulted in terrific candidates who have and continue to produce long term positive results. The firm is efficient and performs with class. I would recommend Pfeiffer and Company to handle any corporate executive search; they can be counted upon for superior results.”

Past President, NVAR

“As the Realtor association president and member of the search committee to replace our CEO of 17 years I can say that Leonard Pfeiffer & Co became our Seeing Eye dog. Leonard, staff and Zara of course, became part of our association family during the search process. They are skilled professionals, well connected, not pushy (but assertive) and best of all lead us to a successful choice!”

Search Committee Member, NVAR

“After an unexpected retirement of a long-tenured EVP, our board and organization was forced to go through an unfamiliar process.  Leonard guided us through the complicated process step-by-step, knew how to ask the right questions, sourced some outstanding candidates, and guided us towards an effective decision-making process.  One year later, we couldn’t be happier with the result.  Thanks to Leonard and his search process, our organization is thriving, and he made an ideal match we could not have done on our own”

Board Member, Women’s Council of REALTOR

“ACG’s executive search was completed on time and on budget. More importantly, it resulted in a strategic (or terrific) fit that continues to advance the association eight years later.”

Board Member, ACG

“The Pfeiffer Company provided candidates of excellent quality for our association’s search for a new CEO. They honed in on our requirements, provided insight into the process, and produced excellent results. The most difficult part was choosing someone for the position, as all the candidates were stellar.”

Past Chairman, NVAR

“Leonard and his team made the experience of securing a job easy and enjoyable every step of the way. They are respected within the association industry as honest and skilled professionals. They take care of their customers during and after the placement process.”

Final Candidate, NAMA

“For the past 12 years I have used Leonard for a number of Senior level searches.  He has consistently exceeded my expectation.  I have always found him to be of the highest integrity and commitment to do his work at the topmost professional standard.  And besides that, he always finds me great candidates.  He gets my highest recommendation.”


“Leonard’s skills were immediately visible as he introduced a process and orchestrated a committee made up of industry leaders (I believe that the 11 people represented more than 300 years in our business).  Getting us all on the same page to listen and collaborate on our shared vision for the new leader was done extremely well.  With that foundation, his networking to find the candidates and helping us to interview and select seemed a natural outcome.  Bravo!”

Search Committee Member, NAR

“Suddenly being required to fill an executive position we called on Leonard Pfeiffer to assist us.  With his guidance in refining our needs, with efficiency and amazing resourcefulness we were presented with an excellent choice of candidates from both in and out of our industry. Eight years later we are still pleased with our choice and Leonard’s wise leadership.”

Search Committee Member, STC

“Our organization had a significant challenge when our 25 year CEO/ED decided to retire. Few of us had been through a CEO Executive Search. Leonard and his staff spent considerable time explaining their process, getting to know ophthalmology and ASCRS and attending our convention to interview medical and corporate members there. They presented a broad spectrum of executives who could gracefully manage ASCRS’ transition, as well as politics on the Hill. They kept us well informed throughout their careful search. The Pfeiffer people managed a complex process gracefully, applying their extensive CEO experience to bring us a superb new leader.”

Chair, Search Committee – ASCRS

“LP&CO was right on in all their comments.”
