Our Story

About Hawkeye Search Group

We are a full lifecycle recruiting agency, servicing the hiring needs of eCommerce, Tech, Media, Telecom and more. We source and deliver candidates from marketplace management to CTV advertising. Sourcing from the right search criteria is what we excel in.


Imagine needing external help hiring your next CMO, COO or VP of Sales. Instead of relying on one recruiter’s network to source your next role, you can leverage an entire community. We have the most connected leaders and subject matter experts, who have an exact pulse on who in their network needs a change, and who is a fit based on real experience and connection. We put the power of placement in the hands of those who intimately understand the role & have the network to find them.

Our Story

Formed in 2019, Hawkeye Search Group was launched by friends Fred Williams and Phil Friedman. Recognizing the need for a unique blend of services, we set out to create a recruitment firm that combines the capabilities of an enterprise-level search firm with the personalized approach of a boutique firm.


To ensure nationwide coverage, we strategically hired recruiters across the country, allowing us to tap into talent pools from coast to coast. Over the years, our team has grown, and we have fostered remarkable relationships with both clients and candidates.


After a couple of years of successful operations, we expanded our presence and established our headquarters in New Jersey. This milestone marked a significant step in our journey, providing us with a dedicated office space to better serve our clients and further strengthen our operations.


Driven by our passion for people and guided by our core values of integrity, professionalism, and collaboration, we have built a reputation for delivering exceptional results. Our commitment to excellence remains unwavering as we continue to connect outstanding candidates with the right organizations.
