Originally founded as a marketing consulting firm, Torch Group is now a highly-recognized, national executive search, staffing and consulting organization based in Northeast Ohio

This year marks the 25th Anniversary of the founding of the privately-owned and operated Torch Group, Executive Search Firm. President and CEO, Ronald S. Torch, established the company in 1990 in Stamford, Connecticut, and relocated to Northeast Ohio in 1997.

Originally founded as a marketing consulting firm, Torch Group is now a highly-specialized, national executive search, staffing and consulting organization with unique expertise and practice areas in marketing, sales and communications disciplines and key industries, including foodservice, consumer products, retail and manufacturing. The firm previously received three Weatherhead 100 awards, which recognized it as one of Northeast Ohio’s fastest-growing companies based on revenue from the past five years.

“It has been exciting to grow our business beyond a local marketing consulting firm with just one practitioner into the highly-recognized and awarded executive search firm it is today. Companies all over North America view us as a strategic partner because of our ability to find talent that makes a difference to their business,” Torch said. He added that Michele Torch, EVP & Chief Talent Officer, joined Torch Group in 1999 to head the executive search practice, which focused on helping local clients fill mid-level and specialized marketing and sales positions within just a couple of industries. Today, Torch Group is recruiting key senior and executive-level positions in their functional and industry practice areas, as well as providing marketing consulting and professional staffing services.

Torch Group currently has eight practice areas: marketing and sales, foodservice, consumer products, manufacturing, software and technology, retail, building products, and food and beverage. The firm employs eight people and assigns a team to each search, including an executive recruiter, researcher, project coordinator, and account manager.
