About Gaines

Who We Are

Gaines International is a globally positioned executive search and recruiting firm serving the architecture, interior design, engineering, construction and real estate development industries. With over 37+ years of experience in specialized professional executive search and recruiting, we serve as both a partner and trusted advisor to our North American and international clientele. The mission of our team of consultants and researchers is to connect your company with individuals who possess the leadership qualities, expertise and talent to enhance your organization and bottom line.

It takes much more than a resume to identify mid- to senior-level candidates. For every individual and organization we work with, our experienced team of researchers and consultants conduct in-depth interviews. Our goal is to introduce a candidate with the background, skills and personality to provide effective leadership and enterprise within your company’s culture.

Our search consultants are experts in the industry and show consistent success with placing talented leaders throughout the international architecture, design, engineering, construction and real estate development industries.

We initiate and complete 50+ mid- to senior- level search assignments each year, and the industries and geographic markets we serve continues to grow.

Our Mission

We partner with our clients to connect them with the top talent in the global design and building industries. Our process goes beyond just finding the right skills and experience by identifying individuals who can help you solve key business challenges.

We change the lives of the people that we bring to our client organizations, as they are instrumental in making a difference both for the firm and the community they are joining. Our candor with our clients and candidates ensures a strong culture fit for both parties. Every Gaines professional offers a personalized approach that enables us to bring lasting value for both the client and the candidate.
