Our Company

Our Story


20/20 Foresight began in 1994 as a real estate-focused executive search firm. We built a reputation for having unsurpassed expertise in this sector, and today we are the largest real estate executive search firm in the country. We’ve since replicated our process and expanded our search practice to include financial and professional services firms. We identify top talent that other recruiters miss, making our consultants trusted advisors to leading organizations across the country.


We continued to evolve as our client’s needs expanded. We built an Organizational Consulting practice to help our clients cultivate and manage their  leadership teams. We also seized an opportunity to use our expertise to help executive-level professionals with their job searches. 20/20 Foresight’s Executive Marketing & Job Finding has helped hundreds of executives find positions with leading organizations around the world.


Today, 20/20 Foresight is proud to be a full service, vertically integrated talent advisory firm. We help organizations retain exceptional leaders, advise them how to manage their human capital through every stage of the employee lifecycle, and work with individual executives to navigate and advance their careers.

The benefits of our integrated platform

Holistic knowledge

We understand the inner workings of real estate, financial services, and professional services companies. From hiring practices to succession planning —we know how they function and make decisions.

Cross-functional expertise

Each of our areas of expertise informs and strengthens the others. For example, we review compensation packages as executive recruiters, which offers insights that inform our Compensation Consulting practice. Similarly, our executive search expertise offers a rare window into how hiring decisions are made. We have integrated this knowledge into our Executive Marketing & Job Finding program.

A high-tech approach

We have a relentless drive for innovation. 20/20 Foresight proudly built an unmatched technology framework and data-centric approach. Our state-of-the-art database and proprietary tools ensure we have up-to-date, accurate information about candidates, companies, and industries.

A high-touch experience

A senior consultant — who all have more than ten years of industry experience — is dedicated to every assignment. Many of them served as executives in premier real estate and financial services organizations. They know the companies, the players, and your industry from the inside out. They’re hands on from start to finish.

Our solutions are transformative


20/20 Foresight’s human capital solutions help our corporate clients achieve a high functioning organization in which talent, process, and structure are aligned with strategic goals. This translates into success in every dimension – growth, agility, innovation, engagement, competitive advantage, and revenue.


We are equally passionate about our one-on-one work with individual executives who are looking for their next big role. We understand that there is nothing more transformative than working at a job that you love. Our job finding program helps our executive clients find a home for their special expertise which ensures success and longevity.

Our values


We’ll give it to you straight – the good and the bad. We seek to build long-term relationships built on objective advice, trust and respect.

Client focused

We don’t believe in one size fits all solutions. We tailor our proven approach and services to the needs and goals of each client.


We are easy to do business with – always accessible, flexible, and no-nonsense. Our goal is to exceed your expectations so “no” is not in our vocabulary.


We’re proud to be innovators and forward-thinkers. We constantly evolve our tools and techniques to provide our clients with the optimal experience and superior results.

Data driven

Our successful clients don’t base their business decisions on intuition and neither do we. Our strategy, process and recommendations are based on data and analytics.


No one wants a “Jack of all trades and master of none.” So, we are specialists – real estate, financial and professional services are what we do, and we know these sectors inside and out.
