About RSW Search

RSW Executive Search matches exceptional mid-level, c-level, and board-level candidates with venture-backed and private equity companies.

Catering to Your Unique Hiring Goals and Needs

RSW Executive Search was founded by Stephen Winget to bring a more personal and dedicated service approach to the executive search process. Our goal is to serve our clients as if our roles were reversed and we were expecting executive search services.

Mr. Winget spent nearly two decades as a key member of the original team that built Hobbs & Towne into a Top-20 premier executive search firm in the energy, industrial, and commercial technology sectors. Today, he has patterned RSW on the small, customer-centric boutique firms that deliver excellence on every search.

With 20+ years of executive search experience dedicated to this sector, Mr. Winget has developed one of the strongest reputations in the market. RSW maintains the most extensive network of executive contacts from the industry (and peripheral industries), which enables us to quickly navigate, identify, and attract the most talented executives for a particular search.

Understanding Leadership Requirements

Mr. Winget has worked with all stages of organizations, from seed-stage start-ups to larger, middle-market com­panies, including mid-size multinational organizations. This broad reach has allowed him to understand the nuances of each stage of a company’s development, and most importantly, the leadership characteristics required at each stage of a company’s growth.

Client Testimonials

I have known Stephen Winget for 7 years and recommend him highly as a recruiter for filling key technical roles in advanced manufacturing. After successfully helping me find engineering talent at a Silicon Valley start-up company, I chose Steven to help fill a difficult to find process automation role at Elcon Precision. Steven is very organized, listens carefully to your requirements, and keeps you well informed as the pipeline of candidates is developed and optimized. Steven consistently delivers quality candidates when promised and assists with the process vetting candidates to find the right person for the job. His work is customized to your specific search criteria, therefore the majority of candidates he identifies closely match the requirements of the role you need to fill. Stephen is a fabulous technical recruiter and I recommend his services to anyone on the technical manufacturing business space.

Stephen and I have worked together for the past 20 years. I have reached out to Stephen on several opportunities I had an interest in and to assist him with recommendations as well. Stephen is an extremely high caliber executive search professional. I can attest from personal experience Stephen will interview every candidate in the best interest of the search he is working on and do his very best to assure he presents only a fully vetted candidate for any search he has. Stephen is a person of high ethics, honesty, and follow up. I would hire Stephen to represent my company as my first choice as well as reach out to him to secure a new position if needed.
