For the fifth time in the past six years, Tyler & Company has been recognized as one of the nation’s largest healthcare executive search firms by Executive Recruiter News (ERN).

In its March 2008 “Rankings Issue,” ERN listed Tyler & Company as the 39th largest retained executive search firm by fee revenue in the United States. In its 36th year, ERN’s Ranking Issue continues to be the benchmarking standard within the executive search industry. The annual listing ranks the 20 largest global and 40 largest U.S. executive search firms.

“This recognition reflects the hard work and commitment that our employees put forth to be on top and stay on top,” says J. Larry Tyler, FACHE, FAAHC, FHFMA, CMPE, President and CEO of Tyler & Company. “We’re celebrating our 30th anniversary in 2008, and this commendation is a wonderful way to kick off what looks to be another stellar year.”

Jeanne Sturges, managing editor of ERN, says the independent newsletter ranks the top U.S. firms and global practices using metrics that provide a more detailed look at where they stand in the industry.

“ERN’s rankings not only provide insight into individual firm performance, but it offers valuable market intelligence regarding year-over-year growth rates, size of the market, and relative market share of large, mid-size and boutique firms, as well as other essential data, such as revenue per consultant and number of firm offices,” says Sturges. “No matter where on the list a firm ranks, sharing real estate with the world’s most well-known and reputable search firms is a tremendous marketing opportunity for any firm willing to benchmark itself against the industry giants.”

Tyler & Company serves healthcare organizations nationwide through its four offices around the U.S., including Charlotte, NC; Austin, TX, Philadelphia, PA and Atlanta, GA.
