Almost everything in retail starts with “what.” Y Scouts is a retail executive search firm that starts with “why.”


The majority of retailers say what a product does, what it costs, and what color it comes in. For example: “Y Scouts is a retail executive search firm. We help organizations recruit the best retail executives in America because of our purpose based recruiting approach. We work on retainer and take a percentage of first year salary for successful executive hires…”

Are you inspired after reading that? We didn’t think so. When communication is done from the outside in, people are able to understand the facts and figures. It just doesn’t drive their behavior.

We believe inspired organizations and inspired retail executives – regardless of their industry, regardless of their size – all begin with why. They ask questions like, “Why does our organization exist? Why do people care about our products?” When leaders and organizations know why they do what they do, consumers and customers respond.

The goal of our retail executive search firm is to present you with candidates who think, act and communicate from the inside out. We’re able to present candidates with the right mix of purpose, personality and professional skills by taking a purpose based recruiting approach to our searches.
