About NextGen History  

About NextGen Global Executive Search -  founded in 2009 when four successful and highly regarded search firms, Abba Wireless Executive Search, Active Wireless ESG, AddWireless, and Hufford Associates combined into one firm.  As one of the early proponents of bilateral matching assessments, behavioral interview techniques, and performance-based hiring principles, our founders developed the Leadership Vault, an award winning executive search platform that can identify, screen, and assess “A players” at any level.  “A players” are that elusive top 14% of the global workforce who produce 8 to 10 times more than “B players.
