The Weston Associates, founded by Nicholas Cianciola is a Retained Global Executive Staffing and Consulting Firm specializing in strategic diversity placement. Our mission since 1986 has been the recruitment and placement of Diversity and Inclusion talent at all professional levels. Headquartered in Wilton, Connecticut, the firm's impressive client list is international in scope and is comprised primarily of select publicly traded companies, financial institutions and large privately held organizations who understand that a diverse workforce outperforms and leads to innovation and growth. The firm's success results from a very personalized and professional service and executive placements have been made throughout North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia and The Middle East.

We identify, evaluate, and recommend a diverse slate of candidates appropriate to our client's specifications.

Each assignment undertaken by The Weston Associates is supported by a well-equipped, full-time research team and managed directly by the firm's senior partner to insure the highest level of quality and service.

At the outset of an assignment, a position specification detailing the search guidelines is developed with the client. The senior partner then directs the efforts of the in-house research department to determine those sources most likely to produce qualified candidates. Clients are generally presented with qualified candidates within thirty days of an assignment.

As part of internal quality control standards, the senior partner will be personally involved on every assignment and no candidates are presented unless they have been interviewed by the firm.
