Executive Search Firm, JM Search, Selects Pitchly As Solution Provider

Posted by: Koral Hull

JM Search, a nationally recognized premier executive search firm, has selected Pitchly as its cloud-based representative search database and pitch automation solution.

With Pitchly in their stack, they hope to streamline their pitch and presentation creation processes. What previously was a long and tedious process with vast training required, will be cut down to a fraction of the time. 

Background on JM Search

Founded in 1980, JM Search (www.jmsearch.com) recruits transformational leaders who enhance organizational performance and increase shareholder value.

JM Search, with headquarters in King of Prussia, PA and office locations in major cities across the US, brings North American reach, local market depth, industry specialization and functional expertise to recruiting top tier executives and board directors. 

Their clients include private equity and venture capital firms and their portfolio companies, as well as Fortune 1000 companies. This roster solidifies their spot on the list of premier executive search firms. 

According to Rebecca Baker, JM Search’s Chief Marketing Officer, “Our firm has been on a deliberate path of growth and expansion, thanks to the growing number of private equity-backed and public companies who continue to put their trust in us. 
With hundreds of select searches each year, we have been actively raising our game across all our internal systems and functions so that we can put our focus where it needs to be – on our clients.”


The Pitchly Difference

Ms. Baker noted that Pitchly will enable the firm to house thousands of accurate data points that will help the firm better tell its story and highlight relevant experiences and areas of expertise with potential clients.

This sentiment was echoed by John Marshall, CEO of JM Search, “This innovative cloud-based solution fits with our growth strategy as a firm.“  

Ryan Gerhardy, Co-Founder and CEO at Pitchly, commented “Pitchly gives the JM Search team a one of a kind proprietary database that will deliver real results and competitive advantage. Using our Present Application, they can now automate their processes and instantly create PowerPoint-based pitches and presentations from the stored data.” 


Mr. Gerhardy explained that many professional services firms like JM Search find creating, maintaining and updating PowerPoint documents to be a labor-intensive but essential fact of life. This requires substantial staff training to achieve consistency.

Pitchly removes the need for constant training and oversight, mitigates errors and lets firms focus on what they love --- working with clients. “We are thrilled to be working with the JM Search team using Pitchly. As their needs and use case grow, Pitchly will be evolving our product to stay ahead of those needs,” said Mr. Gerhardy.
