Executive Recruiters Specializing In Marketing

We Are Different


Through our innovative methodology, we provide the most comprehensive service in the placement and recruitment industry.

Our five-phase approach ensures confidentiality and complete client/candidate satisfaction through true alignment by discovery, search and screen, continual refinement, ongoing support and a fast delivery track record of 3-6 weeks.

Aldebaran’s boutique size is a huge advantage when it comes to our ability to recruit from a wider range of companies because we do not have the same limitations as larger firms do to recruit from existing clients.


Aldebaran’s recruitment process is designed to ensure:

  • An easy to execute Engagement Agreement
  • High-level due diligence with each candidate
  • Matching qualifications include personality and corporate cultural values to ensure a long term fit
  • Handling all logistics including arranging travel, setting up phone or in-person interviews or video conferencing, etc.
  • Thorough references are conducted at the time of offer negotiations; reference calls are scheduled by appointment and usually last 30-45 minutes; all references presented are supervisory, recent, and have been conducted personally by an Aldebaran associate by telephone
  • The selected candidate is pre-closed on all points, including compensation, before an offer is extended; counter-offer damage control takes place throughout the entire process
  • Typically, Aldebaran Associates will pre-close an offer by acquiring a verbal “yes” once the offer is negotiated before the client puts it in writing – we have never had a written offer rescinded or rejected
  • Aldebaran Associates continues a client care strategy to ensure the success of the placement by making periodic calls to both the client and the candidate and, thereby, acting as a liaison for both parties
  • Executive/professional coaching for placed candidates is provided and fees are negotiable upon request

Aldebaran Associates provides the highest quality customer service and support. As we continue to grow, we will consistently add talent that is highly capable of providing the best customer service available in the industry. Client support is our highest priority. We realize, as the old cliché goes, that “If we don’t take care of our customer, someone else will.”

Aldebaran Associates is committed to extraordinary care, both in terms of client company and candidate services. There is a consistent pattern of attention to detail, technical competence and trust building that is present throughout our entire placement process. We genuinely care about the companies and professionals we represent, and it shows.

We won’t compromise our seriousness about the integrity of our business dealings for anything. You are assured the highest level in ethical standards at all times.


Clients rely on our extreme sense of urgency, proactive approach, personal touch, consultative style, commitment and attention to detail. We have grown through word of mouth; our history of referrals and repeat business demonstrates a track record of competence and quality. You are assured the highest level of ethical standards and integrity at all times. Collaboration, partnership and trust are the driving forces in our daily business.


"Aldebaran has placed some excellent people on our staff. We are always very diligent and selective with our hiring and Aldebaran understands this and works with us to get it right. It takes patience and persistence and they get it."

J.M.W., President International/Hispanic Consumer Marketer of Telecommunication Products

"We are a mid-size company in Atlanta with very specialized staffing requirements. We all liked Lily from the beginning because she really took the time to understand our business. We have been very satisfied in all our dealings with her firm for six or more years now. Aldebaran Associates has carefully and diligently completed several searches for us... our receptionist, our accounts payable clerk, our CFO, other key staff members... some of our very best people... all came to us thorough Aldebaran."
