The Brownestone Group is an executive search and strategic consulting firm that specializes in connecting leaders with the talent that will transform their businesses. Our expertise in the consumer, fashion, luxury, retail and hospitality industries spans across functional areas, and we bring talent to brands in the form of candidates and strategic partners.
Tim Boerkoel, a veteran of top retail and executive search companies, launched The Brownestone Group following many years at major global consulting firms, allowing him to continue to collaborate with like-minded peers and clients on meaningful projects in a faster, yet more comprehensive manner. In addition to effectiveness and speed, we are committed to ethical and honest partnerships.
Industries and Functions
Our success can be felt in boardrooms and across the C-Suite of startups and major international corporations alike, and our successful candidates can be found throughout the consumer, fashion, hospitality, luxury and retail sectors. Affiliate and partner consultancies provide additional skills and networks for regionally-focused searches, private equity introductions, new product development and other collaborative B2B partnerships.
Our experience spans Chief Executive Officers, Board Members and Presidents, as well as C-suite leaders in finance, marketing, digital and e-commerce, merchandising, product design, production and sourcing, supply chain, store design and operations, real estate and human resources.
Recruiting for All Locations
The Brownestone Group is based in New York City, but we successfully recruit top leaders to and from a wide variety of locations, ranging from large to small cities, East to West coasts, Europe to Asia, and many places in between.
Global Affiliate Network
Technology allows us to work anywhere, but we believe a regionally-specific search warrants a consultant with expertise in that region. At The Brownestone Group, consulting and executive search projects are led by those with a complete understanding of the business.
The Brownestone Group enjoys, in addition to its partners and affiliate consultancies, meaningful relationships with top leaders from many industries. The diversity of our clients, friends and supporters of every nature give Brownestone the strongest of foundations. Advisory Board members are leaders known for their successes at startups, fast-growth companies and international corporations. Their achievements include brand transformations and business turnarounds. Our advisors are change agents, creative by nature and experts of global brands and consumers as a result of their passions and experiences.
