A member of the USA’s management team, Todd has wide-ranging expertise in executive search.
Todd Houchins is a Vice President of Executive Search in the New York office of Harvey Nash. A senior member of the firm’s U.S. retained search team, Todd has successfully placed a long list of senior executives who have gone on to deliver measurable growth, turn around critical businesses and build winning brands. Todd specializes in C-level, general management and senior executive searches across a broad range of market sectors. Prior to Harvey Nash he was a consultant with CTPartners, one of the world’s largest retained executive search firms, where he was a member of the Technology Practice and Board/CEO Practice, and The Abbott Group, a boutique search firm specializing in aerospace, defense and national security. Through the course of many senior-level searches Todd has identified, assessed and recruited hundreds of executives, led client projects and communications, and performed candidate assessments, corroborative referencing and offer negotiations. The first decade of Todd’s career was in law and public policy. He held advisory roles for elected officials in the US Congress, including Committee Counsel and Legislative Director. He built strong skills through the course of these roles in complex issues analysis, project management and communication. Today, the same skill sets contribute to Todd's success with search, as measured by a strong record of referrals and repeat business. Todd’s abilities to listen, understand, and problem solve have continually allowed him to exceed his clients’ expectations of a talent acquisition partner. He prides himself on finding the ideal solution for his clients’ business goals. An endurance athlete since high school, Todd was later a paratrooper and a survival instructor in the US military. He went on to earn an undergraduate degree from George Washington University and a law degree from DePaul University. He and his partner currently reside in New York City.
