I am a co-founder/managing director of a boutique retained executive search firm. We focus specifically on VC/PE backed mid-market tech companies & deal with CEO, CFO, CMO, CTO & Head of Sales searches specifically.

I cannot speak directly for every search firm or company's process, however we do references & background checks on only our lead candidate at the very end of the process; and they are always contingent upon a forthcoming offer letter. As an employed executive you don't want to be handing out your reference list at will.

Good luck getting the job!
