To the Candidate

Thank you for visiting The Viscusi Group website.  

Dear Candidate,

Welcome to our website. The Viscusi Group is a retainer-based search firm not a placement agency in the traditional sense of the word. That means, we cannot help you find a job, unless we are working on a relevant search. Our clients are the companies that hire us to recruit candidates for them for specific jobs, typically from their competitors. We don’t place people like an employment agency. That being said, our site has a lot of helpful information on how to find a job. 

We encourage you to peruse our jobsite; you are always welcome to send us a copy of your resume and call with any questions.

Thank you for reaching out to The Viscusi Group. 

How We Work: 

The Viscusi Group is a retainer-based search practice; we recruit throughout the US and across the globe for positions at all levels of the interior furnishing and building materials industries.  Our clients include leading manufacturers, furniture dealers, retailers, wholesalers and e-commerce platforms. Our recruiters know every aspect of the industry, they recruit in.

As “headhunters” in the truest sense of the word, we recruit the best of the best directly from your competitors or “out of the box” candidates from outside your space. Our secret is in understanding how to identify candidates from any industry who will communicate and sell to your customers. It isn't just about where a candidate comes from. Your business is our business. We know your customers and by extension, know the people you need to grow your business. 

Unique to The Viscusi Group is our two-year, free replacement guarantee. If someone we place with your company quits or is fired within two years of the hire, we will replace them for free.

The Viscusi Group has been very successful in helping companies headquartered outside of the U.S. by recruiting proven performers who know how to establish distribution, and “unlock” the North American market on behalf of these international companies.  We also have significant experience working as executive recruiters to Venture Capital and Private Equity Firms who have entered the thriving interiors space.  These financiers look to make quick new hires who can deliver a sure return on their investment; a perfect match for The Viscusi Group. Of course, our "bread & butter" has always been our many longstanding relationships with the industry's most iconic and design driven brands, both privately held family businesses and publicly traded companies.

The Viscusi Group understands that the necessity of discreetly but aggressively recruiting only the strongest individuals is more important now, more than ever. In order to effectively maintain and grow your business in today's economy, it is necessary that your team remain dynamic with strong leadership and excellent workers. You need the best and the reality is that the best individuals rarely respond to online "Help Wanted" ads, or LinkedIn messages. Top talent is simply not out looking. This is where we come in. We proactively find them and bring them to your company. 

We cold-call potential candidates for you as well as use our extensive network of industry contacts to bring you the best people.  Simultaneously, we go outside of the industry to find fresh and exciting talent suited to bringing a new perspective and skill set to your company. All of our recruiting is done the old-fashioned way. Our relationships become your relationships.  That is what makes a hire happen.

Please feel free to contact me, Stephen Viscusi personally with any questions by telephone at(212) 979-5700 ext.101 or e-mail me at I look forward to speaking with you.
