About Us

four pillars

The name serves as a constant reminder of the importance to nurture each of the “four pillars” in life to maintain balance and consist of: spirituality, health, relationships and work. “Find your why” is about finding your purpose and mission in life. Figuring out what you were meant to do and living your life intentionally with purpose, passion and meaning.

About the Founder

Why I love my job: I’m blessed and grateful each day that I have the opportunity to help change someone else’s life in a positive and meaningful way.

Shane Fairchild wanted to create an executive search firm that was purpose focused. He gets fulfillment by helping others and feels very blessed to be able to provide for his family while doing what he truly loves. After graduating with his MBA, he started his career in public accounting at the Big 4 (EY and Deloitte) as a CPA doing a combination of audit and tax. Then he transitioned to JPMorgan Chase as a Funds Administration Controller within Asset Management before finally identifying his true calling “his passion for helping others with their career and aspirational endeavors through recruiting”. Given his decade plus in-depth knowledge and hands on business experience across accounting, SEC financial reporting, regulatory reporting, finance, audit and tax, he’s been able to excel in executive search placement across a wide variety of functional roles and industries. He’s now been in executive search for nearly a decade and hasn’t looked back.

Shane is a two-time graduate of Capital University with a BA in Accounting and an MBA with a Finance concentration. He is also a certified public accountant (CPA) in the State of Ohio and a certified LinkedIn Professional Recruiter. He is a member of Worthington Christian Church. Outside of work, Shane enjoys reading, fishing, playing guitar, photography, Krav Maga, watching football, target practice, cooking, DIY projects around the house and backpacking, along with spending time with his family. Shane is the father of 2 boys and 1 girl, Logan, Addison and Gavin; Shane’s wife Anastasia is a registered nurse and our Chief Heart Officer.
