About Us

Since our founding in 1977, we have cultivated a broad service portfolio, all the while maintaining a long-term perspective. This is why domestic and off-shore clients keep returning to William J. Christopher Associates.

We are a privately held, retainer-based executive search and management consulting firm with headquarters just outside of Philadelphia.

We provide the following services:

  • Executive Recruitment
  • Human Resource Analysis
  • Market Strategy Consulting
  • Diversity Recruiting

Whether early stage start-up or Fortune 500, public or private, global or domestic, companies and organizations in all industry sectors require an effective leadership. Identifying, selecting and attracting key executives and partners is a complex challenge. It has been our passion since 1977.

Our thorough, analytical and fair approach is valued by venture capital and angel-backed start-ups as well as the Global 500. Our consultants have collectively almost 90 years of search, consulting and specialized industry experience.

"Jeff Bole, CEO of William J. Christopher Associates, is in my experience, unique and extremely effective in the search business. He devotes time and effort to understand the culture, challenges and objectives of the employer before seeking prospective applicants. He is a model of integrity in a difficult business. The fact that Jeff has been in business since 1977 speaks for itself. Jeff's philosophy and attitude are shared by all in his firm."
