Alton Morgan, Inc. has a heritage of more than 20 years in executive search and recruitment. The company is a spin-out of the national technology recruiting firm Crosstek, Inc. The company Crosstek was born in 1995 and was located in a business center at 6 Morgan on the corner of Alton and Morgan in the Irvine Spectrum, which is a small high tech area in Orange County, California similar to Silicon Valley. So very simply, the corporation takes its name from the corner of Alton and Morgan as a tribute to where it all began more than 20 years ago. Crosstek was eventually absorbed by Alton Morgan, Inc.

Prior to the spin-out of Alton Morgan, the recruiting company followed the standard recruiting model: providing hard to find IT, software and technology sales professionals to a variety of companies and industries nationwide. In 2006, Crosstek made a change. Inspired by client requests, Crosstek took a hard look at the type of positions it was filling. Management realized the company could use its many contacts and successful search and recruitment model to fill a variety of, non-technical, mid-level and senior management positions. To manage the complexity of each search assignment, while providing the client with a level of cost containment, Crosstek used an innovative search model they developed back in 1995 called the Hybrid-Retained Search. Through this model, they follow a step-by-step process and dedicate a certain amount of time and resources for each assignment. This is how they provide clients with the best service. They focus on the clients’ needs and really search the marketplace, turning up top candidates that may otherwise be left uncovered. This search model is great for most functional, management and executive roles, as well as industry-specific roles.

A new entity is born

In 2011, there was another advancement. Alton Morgan was formed to focus exclusively on mid-level and senior management search assignments. Alton Morgan also addressed the need for affordable executive search services by providing a Hybrid-Retained Search option, which is the same step-by-step process developed and used successfully by Crosstek since it was born in 1995. The company goal or aim is to provide best-in-class placement services for virtually all middle to senior-level management positions across multiple industry specialties.

Growth and practice areas

As the company grew, it added several industry practice areas. The wine industry and high-growth technology companies were the first two specialty practices. By 2013, Alton Morgan expanded its executive search offerings to include an additional specialty practice specifically for media and entertainment businesses. This included new media, content creation, video-on-demand, streaming content, film and television production, music and recording, broadcasting, radio and TV, digital media and content, live events, live entertainment as well as other entertainment sub-industries.

Today, Alton Morgan serves a variety of industries focusing on delivering leadership solutions to clients locally and nationwide. Our passion for executive search and recruitment is at the heart of everything we do.
