Why MS&S?

Established in 1968, Murphy, Symonds & Stowell (MS&S Search) is an executive search firm focused on identification and selection of key leaders for Pacific Northwest-based growth companies and not for profit organizations. The scope of a search can range from a regional to a national or global search, depending on the client organization’s need.

A hallmark of our firm's service is the successful and proactive identification and recruitment of key leadership talent for our clients. We do not take the traditional approach of developing candidates by merely running ads, reviewing resumes, and placing people who seek their next job. Instead, we actively target and recruit the most qualified candidates that meet our client's leadership, technical and cultural needs.

Our unique client relationships and focused searches allow us to identify and bring in the very best talent to an organization. Our success is defined by the quality of the executives whom we recommend and by the contributions they have made to the clients we serve.

MS&S Search truly partners with its clients, working closely with decision makers to make critical hiring decisions. It is innovative and forward thinking executives that propel a client organization to greater success.
