Taylor/Haley Search Partners, LLC

Boston, MA

Taylor/Haley Search Partners, LLC is a boutique, “exclusivity-based” retained search firm specializing in the permanent and interim placement of entrepreneurial senior executives. With over 15 years of combined search experience, our principals have expertise in Software/Internet, Professional Services, Emerging Technology, Direct Marketing/Retail, and Pharmaceutical/Biotech across a variety of functional disciplines. Based in Boston, we work with startups, mid-tier, and venture-backed companies. Our clients have a heightened sense of urgency because they are in a perpetual race to build brand, increase revenues, establish leadership, and most importantly, offer return on investment to shareholders and investors. Like our clients, we place a premium on execution and results. Taylor/Haley’s search process allows for quick and accurate calibration of client expectations around concrete benchmarks, with complete accountability at all times…we can often present qualified candidates for client interview within two weeks of initiating an assignment. Each and every search is customized for each and every client. Taylor/Haley does not believe in inflexible or traditional fee structures, only that our principals function as exclusive agents in order to manage quality and delivery.


Ken Plasz, Jr.

Unlike most in the search profession, Ken became an executive recruiter by design. He began his career out of college as a Research Director for a boutique in the Midwest. Ken acquired valuable corporate experience during a seven-year hiatus with the Pharmaceutical Products Division of Abbott Laboratories, after which he returned to search, joining the Boston office of Christian & Timbers. Realizing a greater affinity for the boutique model, Ken teamed up with a Midwest-based specialty firm. He opened the doors of their New England office and provided the leadership and direction necessary to drive business forward in a market rebounding from a period of economic correction. Driven by an intense desire to represent his own brand, Ken partnered with Steven LaKind to form TAYLOR/HALEY.

Steven LaKind

Steven’s professional career has followed a singular path…recruiting. He began as an agent for a leading Sports and Entertainment firm in New York City where he recruited professional and non-professional athletes and recording artists. Lured by the technology boom, Steven joined Pencom Systems, a nationally known recruiting firm. He quickly became a key member of the team that built Collective Technologies into one of the most successful Outsourced Systems Management organizations in the country. Steven was handpicked to open the Boston office of Pencom Executive Search. After successfully launching that practice, he joined the Boston office of Christian & Timbers in order to gain a large firm perspective. Driven by an intense desire to represent his own brand, Steven partnered with Ken Plasz to form TAYLOR/HALEY.
