Founded in 1967, Chanko-Ward Ltd. is a Retainer-Based Management Consulting Firm that has developed a successful search practice specializing in the identification, selection and the evaluation of investment, business development professionals and executive level financial/accounting senior management.

Our diverse client base ranges from emerging high-tech organizations to large multi-nationals that encompass both publicly and privately held entities.

We are proud of our many long-term relationships that have included American Express (thirty-two years of service), The Blackstone Group (twenty years of service), Citicorp (fourteen years of service) and Sumitomo Corporation of America (twenty years of service).

Our consulting business format is based upon a practiced philosophy of one-to-one personal service. In doing so, we have made a strategic business decision to limit the number of clients that we will be actively engaged with at any given time. By doing this, we ensure that the greatest concentration of our attention will be focused on a specific client and their assignment.

In all situations, our goal has been not to simply fill boxes on our client's organizational charts. Rather it is to identify candidates who, in addition to offering the appropriate technical expertise, provide a natural fit in terms of our client's philosophy and culture.

Additionally, the firm, under the direction of it's founder Jim Chanko, has been personally invested in guiding individuals in their quest for alternative career opportunities. This includes development of a formalized search strategy, goal setting, networking and the "game of interviewing".

Active Member of the Advisory Board of the Private Equity CFO Association.

The IACPR (International Association of Corporate and Professional Recruiters) has voted Chanko-Ward Ltd. one of the top retained Executive Search firms in America.
