The name 12.12Partners pays homage to a day that changed the world forever. On December 12, 1991 Paul Kunz at Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC) initiated the very first web server in the United States. Kunz sent an email to Tim Berners-Lee at CERN in Switzerland asking Berners-Lee to try and access SLAC’s newly installed web server. Berners-Lee made the attempt. For the first time, computers half a world apart were able to communicate. The rest is, as they say, history.
On that day, the magic wand that would become the World Wide Web transformed the arcane Internet into an accessible “Web” and put the world at one’s fingertips. The paradigm of communication had changed and with it, the world. The 12.12Partners name honors this day and vision by reimagining the field of executive search. The ubiquitous and expensive model offered by most search firms no longer suits today’s intelligent web. 12.12Partners takes an entirely new approach towards retained search and by doing so, ensures the success of our clients.
