Team Chasm

We want to disrupt healthcare by effectively leveraging the right people who can make a difference. Our mission is to impact healthcare for current and future generations through the clients that we serve and candidates we place.

A Tangible Difference to Experience

With offices in Connecticut, Salt Lake City, and San Francisco, Chasm is made up by a diverse team of experienced operators and executive recruiters. Regardless of title or level in the firm, we are all “hands on” with highly experienced recruiters leading and managing projects day-to-day for our clients while working closely with candidates who

 

trust us. We all work as a team utilizing a proven and highly systematized search methodology that maximizes everyone’s contribution as a recruiter to generate consistent and predictable placement outcomes for our clients.

Values & Culture

Practice Collaboration

We value each individual team member as an important and integral part of our culture and purpose. We approach our business and every project from a collaborative, flexible, and intellectually curious perspective.

Deliver High Quality and High Touch Results

We differentiate ourselves from other firms not only by our approach to building relationships but also through our process and detailed attention to high touch, high quality service. We demonstrate expertise within the verticals in which we work and do our best to deliver timely, unparalleled results.

Cultivate a Positive Spirit

We foster a positive company environment that encourages productive and pleasant interactions. We celebrate the opportunities we have to “fail forward” with grace and direct our energies towards learning and growth. We work hard, but we laugh a lot, too.

Model Respect

We are clear, direct, and honest in all of our communications. We honor our word – if we commit to something, we deliver, or we communicate a new agreement in a timely manner. We embrace diversity not only at Chasm, but in our candidate selection. We respect our candidates by providing clear and consistent communication during all phases of engagement.

Foster Sincere and Lasting Relationships

We value creating and nurturing long-lasting relationships with our clients, candidates, and vendors. We recognize that our candidates today may become our clients tomorrow. We strive to find ways to add value and speak truth to clients, even when it is uncomfortable or awkward to do so. We represent our clients in the marketplace with the highest degree of professionalism, operating experience, and industry expertise.

  • "Joining Chasm Partners was a no-brainer for me. With an operator-led mentality, transformational results, and technology that allows real-time, transparent communication with clients, it was refreshing to see a search firm could be as innovative, disruptive and as growth-oriented as the investors and entrepreneurs we partner with."
    AMY SIEVERT
    PARTNER, CHASM PARTNERS
  • "I have been in the retained executive search industry for over twenty years. Traditional executive search firms have built reputations as being very transactional in nature. The Founders of Chasm have built a culture and business model that challenges this industry norm while creating a rewarding environment with real transparency and accountability. I honestly can't see myself anywhere else!"
    DAVID WOODWARD
    PARTNER, CHASM PARTNERS

TEAM BASED
COMPENSATION

Unlike traditional recruiting firms, Chasm employees are compensated based on team performance and project outcomes rather than commission. We are the opposite of individual contributors, celebrating the “no look pass” by leveraging one another’s expertise and network across all projects, regardless of level or client. We are all recognized and rewarded based on our team performance and the quality of our work.

DIVERSITY
.

We have always embraced the idea that our clients can benefit greatly by fostering diversity and inclusion in their organizations. We have been strongly committed to promoting and communicating our focus on diversity in recruiting both for our clients and in our own hiring.

Events in 2020 have amplified the need for an increased commitment and focus on issues of diversity and inclusion, of human equality and equal opportunity. We see this as an opportunity to expand our understanding and accountability around diversity.

We acknowledge and support the Black Lives Matter movement and are taking the time to educate ourselves and create actionable policies, programs, and initiatives for internal and external change. As recruiters, we have a moral obligation to create opportunities to build diverse teams and foster inclusive cultures.

OUR Founding Story

Twenty-five years ago, Kristy and Matt worked together at Procter & Gamble as Brand Managers in Europe and across the globe. Both managed $100+ Million businesses before pursuing more entrepreneurial opportunities focused on healthcare. Their experience managing both large and small organizations required significant hiring  while working with some of the most recognized recruiting firms in the world. Let’s just say, they saw room for improvement for both the client and candidate working with executive recruiters.

In 2015, Chasm Partners was founded in a New York City cafe with the desire to disrupt the recruiting space specifically in healthcare. Working in close partnership with a handful of healthcare investors, along with some early anchor healthcare clients, Kristy and Matt 

 

focused on developing a new recruiting model addressing three foundational strategies designed to change healthcare recruiting:

  • Gain better alignment and trust with clients and candidates through “At-Risk” economic models
  • Drive executive search outcomes utilizing a team with deep healthcare and recruiting expertise
  • Create a predictable, systematic approach to recruiting rather than rely on individual contributors

Utilizing their operational expertise, Matt and Kristy have been able to deliver on these foundational strategies evidenced by the fact that Chasm Partners works with some of the nation’s top investors and innovative companies in healthcare. Today, you will still find Kristy and Matt spending the majority of their time working with clients and candidates, helping to change healthcare one leader at a time.
