Rolfe (Rik) Kopelan – Managing Partner

With over 40 years of search experience, Mr. Kopelan leads our Investment Banking and General Management practices.

His searches are conducted in a traditional, rigorous fashion – investing the effort and time to thoroughly understand a client’s strategy, growth objectives, culture, and the backgrounds and personalities of a firm’s principals. Mr. Kopelan works with a client’s key decision makers to craft the appropriate position, responsibilities and requisites to help insure a successful search.

As a Search Consultant he then confers with stakeholders to define the most effective search strategy to expeditiously identify, recruit and prescreen the most qualified candidates. Finalist candidates are vetted by the application of competency-based interviews, thorough reference analysis, and one or two assessment instruments to help determine their management, executive and leadership capabilities as well as the fit to an organization’s culture and style. Mr. Kopelan’s experience and perspective enables him to offer calibrated assessments in order for clients to make the most insightful hiring decisions, resulting in more successful and enduring relationships.
