When it comes to hiring executive or professional level
talent—you wouldn’t settle for second-best.
When it comes to finding you that talent—neither will we.

Welcome to Cochran, Cochran & Yale.

Search & Recruitment • Professional Consulting



great to work with

“CCY has filled several key management and technical roles for our IT department. They are old-school search professionals who deliver talent that is not readily on the market. When we have critical, hard-to-fill strategic positions, we use CCY. They really take the time to understand our business, and are great to work with.”

Steve Baxter, Director, Global IT Services

Strong leadership qualities


“I have worked with Dave Call of Cochran, Cochran, and Yale on numerous critical recruiting assignments over the past 12 years.  Typically, I work with Dave on a retained basis focusing on various operational leadership roles.  It has been my experience that Dave and his colleagues at CCY are quickly able to understand the hard and soft competencies needed for the position.  Furthermore, they take time to understand the culture of my company so that they may find candidates with similar values and cultural fit.  CCY has been my "go-to" recruiting firm for candidates with deep technical competencies, yet strong leadership qualities. They have an amazing ability to find these candidates quickly and build robust slates for my open positions. They have a deep network of leaders from all industries and often help talent transfer their experiences across industries quite successfully. I highly recommend CCY as a partner to fill director and above positions.”

CCY understood exactly what we wanted


"Numerous people recommended Cochran, Cochran & Yale when the Community Foundation needed to outsource a critical executive search. CCY handled advertising, recruiting, and phone screening, then worked with us to support in-person interviews, debriefing, reference checking, and offer extension. Cheryl met with us numerous times to understand all aspects of the search including the culture/personality fit.  Conducting our in-person interviews discreetly and confidentially at CCY's offices resulted in an efficient and professional process with minimal distractions. CCY also acted in a consultative capacity as we crossed various hurdles with candidates, even when that required calls on nights and weekends."
