Family Owned & Dedicated for 30+ Years
Stranberg Resource Group is a 2nd generation family-owned executive search and leadership consulting firm. We work as your business partner — supporting your business’s leadership and recruitment efforts where and when you need it.
A Family Committed to Your Business
In 1989, Jim Stranberg founded our firm with a clear focus on value-driven executive search and top-tier service. This approach emphasized personalized attention and limited the number of simultaneous searches to ensure quality placements.
Kate Stranberg joined the firm in 2010, bringing a decade of experience in management consulting. Bill Stranberg followed in 2013, after six years working in Asia, further strengthening our team. With their involvement, our firm transitioned from a singular entrepreneurial project to a multigenerational business.
This transition also marked a strategic shift towards specializing in family-owned and founder-led businesses.
Today, Stranberg is the leading firm in executive search and leadership consulting for family owned and founder led businesses. We focus on researching and addressing the unique challenges and opportunities these businesses face. Our dedication is mirrored in our tailored services, ensuring each client receives exceptional value and expertise in our engagements.
