Philosophy of Koste Williams Executive Search Firm, Deborah Koste

Our Philosophy

Koste Williams set the bar high when we began our retained executive search firm in 1992. In our quest to find exceptional executives for our client companies, it has been our privilege to represent more than 40 corporations, helping them to build leadership teams with world-class talent. We bring deep marketplace knowledge to every engagement, and earn the trust of our clients with honesty, creativity, clear thinking and open communication. Understanding the power of human capital is a defining characteristic of our firm.

Our prime focus is on placing executives in key human resources and finance positions. We work with a range of companies in many different industries. And we work hard to understand each client’s business, their culture and their unique needs for talent. We partner with client leadership to market the opportunity, cultivate a diverse slate of candidates, and identify the best talent for the job. Our goal is always this: the best person for the job and the best job for the person.

We are passionate about our clients, our candidates, the quality of our work, and our reputation. We are constantly analyzing our successes and our challenges…even success can be improved upon.




“Monigle Associates retained Koste Williams to conduct a search for a new CFO for our 80-person branding consultancy. We were looking for someone who could not only come in and hit the ground running on company-wide finance management, but also take a lead in human resources and administration. Koste Williams spent time with us to determine the appropriate fit, both in terms of skills and personality, and then set off for the search. They came back to us in a matter of weeks with three qualified candidates that all seemed like they could fit the bill. As it turned out, two of the candidates were exceptional fits, and our final selection has been a great success. If you’re looking for a group who can read your needs, find candidates that match the criteria, and get it all done without a loss of management time, Koste Williams is the firm to use.”
