WTW Associates, Inc. became part of Buffkin Baker in 2017. WTW Associates is a retained executive search and consulting firm based in New York City. Founded in 1987 by Warren T. Wasp, Jr., the Firm is committed to providing executive search and consulting services for senior level executives for a select group of client organizations with whom we strive to develop long-term relationships.
We have successfully concluded engagements in nearly all facets of business including finance, legal, marketing and sales, strategic planning, human resources, digital media, creative, operations and general management (‘C’ level: CEO, COO, CFO etc.). In order to ensure our clients the greatest access to possible candidates, we limit the number of clients in each industry we serve.
Our business philosophy is simple: to be personally involved at every step of each assignment we undertake. The credibility and success of WTW Associates, Inc. has been based on our performance and commitment to our clients, while maintaining the highest standards of business ethics. We pride ourselves in offering more to our clients than the ability to conduct an executive search. We believe that we are leadership consultants as well as executive search consultants, and that in order to do our job effectively, we must understand the organization we represent. This means spending time with key executives to understand their operating styles and help them define their leadership needs for the future as well as the present. It also means understanding what constitutes talent and providing value-added services in identifying the best qualified, most talented individuals to fill roles within their organization.
WTW Associates is also a member of AESC (Association of Executive Search Consultants), which defines the ethics and professional standards for the Consultant in Retained Executive Search.
