About us

Why you should join ESOA:

  • ESOA exists to provide cutting edge learning opportunities and to provide a collegial environment to discuss topics of interest to search firm owners.


  • To our knowledge, ESOA is the only “Owners Only” executive search organization in the Metroplex.  Only the owner or his/her designated principle may attend our regular meetings.


  • ESOA hosts 11 programs per year.  We typically meet the 3rd Wednesday of each month at Prestonwood Country Club.   We do not meet in December.  All of ESOA’s programs are developed for an owner audience.   Members are encouraged to suggest meeting topics of particular interest to them.   Four of our programs are owner "round table" discussions (once each quarter).  


  • ESOA books special event speakers two or three times a year.   Danny Cahill, Greg Doersching,  Mike Lejuene, Jordan Rayboy, and Jeff Kaye have all been recent speakers.  For special event meetings, a member may invite members of their staff to attend.


  • Our membership includes small single desk firms as well as larger agencies.  Members represent a mix of contract, contingency, and retained shops.


  • ESOA has a nine member board which closely monitors our programs to assure that we are serving the needs and wants of our members.


  • ESOA is very affordable.  Dues are only $100 per year per firm and monthly lunch meetings cost $25 ($50 for non-members) and are held at Prestonwood Country Club, 15909 Preston Rd, Dallas, TX.
