About Us
Your Top Recruiting Firm

Based in California, we are the premier recruiting resource for Sales, Marketing, Operations, and Executive Leadership professionals across the United States. TurningPoint was first conceived in 2007 in San Diego, a unique business community driven by a diverse industry base and entrepreneurial spirit. The vast majority of these are small, privately-held organizations including numerous start-up companies, a myriad of family-owned and operated businesses, and many public, and Fortune 1000 companies. This unique marketplace served as the catalyst for launching TurningPoint Executive Search, a new type of hybrid search firm that effectively supports companies of all sizes and structures.

Our team of recruiters offers more than 80 years of combined experience in recruiting, human resources, sales, marketing, training, and management. By combining a local presence with national search capabilities, TurningPoint has built a reputation as a world-class search firm. Our access to Global Resources uniquely positions us to work with companies of all sizes, industries, and structures. As a TurningPoint partner, we will help you to identify, attract, and retain tomorrow’s leaders today.

Whether you are a company seeking to fill a challenging position through an effective and targeted recruiting process, or a professional looking for support to connect with your ideal employer, our firm was built with you in mind.

Our Executive Search practice offers a specialized approach to matching professionals with their ideal position and culture.


Our process leverages a model that combines in-depth research, direct recruiting, and comprehensive in-person screening to produce a well-rounded slate of candidates for each search.
