Our Company

Since 2003, ADK Executive Search has been performing executive searches exclusively for the airport industry for all sizes of commercial service and general aviation airports. Because we focus entirely on airport personnel, we have the knowledge and expertise to recruit the best fit candidate for your airport job opportunity. We continually strive to exceed both client and candidate expectations and our team is fully committed to providing the highest level of service and results in the recruitment and development of your leadership teams. The vacancies we have filled have been across the spectrum from executive and senior leadership to other administrative level positions. Our clients are cities, counties, authorities, stand-alone commissions, and airports. We have worked with as many as thirteen search committee members to as few as one. ADK's airport consulting practice was developed initially in response to additional needs of our clients. Our ability to provide added value in organizational development, performance management, succession planning, as well as interim and transitional management has been enhanced with various airport industry specialists added to the ADK Team in the last few years.

Our History

Prior to ADK entering the market, the majority of airports filled their executive positions themselves, without the services of a professional recruitment firm, or they used 'all industry' search firms that charged fees based on the salary of the position being filled. We felt that the industry deserved a more affordable, professional approach and began with a simple mission: to deliver superior executive recruitment service exclusively for the airport industry at a fee that is fair and reasonable for the services rendered. We do not charge on a percentage nor do we add overhead fees to our price. ADK’s modest beginnings have created a culture that fosters creativity, resourcefulness, enthusiasm and an unwavering focus on client service. Today, ADK is the airport industry leader in senior management searches. We take pride in the work we do for our clients and the opportunities we have to continue to bring the best quality service to our clients each and every day.

Our Values

Our clients are the reason for our existence.
Our people, reputation, service, and growth are the core of our success.
