Y Scouts Joins TRANSEARCH International

"We don't do placements – we align leaders to work that matters" a bold statement that makes welcoming Y Scouts to TRANSEARCH International an easy proposition. It's a perfect union of their purpose driven approach to executive search and our own Orxestra® methodology.


Headquartered in Scottsdale, Arizona – Y Scouts is a retained executive search firm serving high-growth North American SaaS, Professional Services, Manufacturing, CPG, and e-commerce companies.


With a team of subject matter experts in 'hiring on purpose', Y Scouts have shifted the traditional narrative around the importance of hiring candidates that connect to your company through a focus on shared values, vision, and sense of purpose. In looking for a more accurate predictor of success than the skills, qualifications, and background that form the basis of traditional search efforts, Y Scouts aim to bridge the gap between your company's purpose and a leader's passions and strengths, creating a more purposeful, methodical, and empathetic approach.


Max Hansen and the founding team, undertook to create the firm, and pursue the "road less travelled", an idea that started in 2012. Max and his team knew the system for finding top executive talent was flawed – both on the candidate side, and on the client side. They decided that it was time to disrupt the traditional process and focus on matching company culture with purpose.


Speaking of purpose, Max and his team are all about transforming how people and companies connect to work that matters, and they achieve this via an obsession with delivering a world-class client and candidate experience.


Celeste Whatley, CEO of TRANSEARCH International is very excited to be able to welcome Y Scouts TRANSEARCH and explore opportunities to strengthen our collective expertise around culture, leadership talent and executive search.


"When I first met Max and his team a few years ago I instinctively knew that they shared our values and was impressed with the innovative way they approached their client and candidate relationships. I know that they will make such a difference within our team with their “anything is possible” approach to everything they do. We are all very excited to welcome them to the TRANSEARCH family!" – Celeste Whatley, CEO TRANSEARCH International


Max Hansen shared his thoughts on this momentous first step on the new road Y Scouts and TRANSEARCH are walking together:


"The Y Scouts team is excited to join the TRANSEARCH International family. It will immediately extend the Y Scout teams’ reach from North America to 60 other offices in 40 countries around the globe. We are looking forward to joining forces with a global team to continue to pursue our purpose of transforming how people and companies connect to work that matters. Y Scouts' obsession around aligning people on culture, performance, and team fit perfectly aligns with TRANSEARCH International powered by Orxestra."  – Max Hansen, CEO & Co-founder Y Scouts


We are delighted to welcome Y Scouts to TRANSEARCH and know they will make a difference as we look forward to our future collaborations and mutual success.
