About Helbling

Specialized Executive Search

Helbling conducts retained executive search and specializes exclusively in architecture, engineering, and constructionfacilities management; and real estate development. Among our clients are top-ranked general, specialty, and heavy civil contractors, healthcare and higher education institutions, real estate developers, public agencies, and corporate entities. We represent organizations nationally and in select locations internationally. 

We were established in 1992 by Tom Helbling on the foundation of his strong relationships with multi-disciplined construction contractors and real estate development entities. In the late 1990s, as our network continued to expand and our clients began referring us to colleagues outside of those sectors, our search capabilities evolved into representing various types of organizations ("owners") with significant real estate assets, complementing our skills and expertise.

Our reputation centers on our ability to successfully perform complex and challenging searches, our highly consultative business demeanor, and most importantly, our integrity. We focus on partnering with our clients, acting as an extension of their organizations, and supporting their strategies, initiatives, and objectives. We offer the sophistication and resources of a large, national search firm while, as a specialized boutique operation, we bring personalized consulting and the attention to detail that builds long-term partnerships.
