Stonehenge Associates Mission Vision Values Statement

Stonehenge Associates forges effective employment relationships between the very best of Northern California insurance industry clients, and the very best of the industry's candidates.

Over a decade ago, we founded Stonehenge Associates on the bedrock of our 20 prior years of recruitment work and relationship-building with clients involved in the sale, underwriting, reinsurance, and administration of employee benefits and property/casualty insurance products.

We've shaped our business with the same tools our clients use: commitments to honesty, integrity, sustainability -- and the certainty that good relationships are the keystones of profitability and longevity.

Thus, we are constantly and consistently building relationships with individuals who make extraordinary staffing candidates. For over three decades, we've developed industry connections, worked in the community, and spent thousands of hours in professional associations. All of this allows us to scout the very best of talent, to observe first-hand where individuals excel, and to assemble a deep database of this information.

And we've learned there's an alchemic touch to our networking skills.

By coupling the bedrock of our professional building stones with the magic of possibilities that comes with long-term relationship-forging, over and over again we find the right fit between clients and candidates. We love watching our clients' businesses grow and prosper as a result of the talented individuals we help make a part of their teams.
