Company History


The Robert Stewart Bridge welcomes visitors to Columbus, Indiana.


Smith and Syberg started in 1989 in Columbus, Indiana, as a retained, executive search firm. The firm was founded on the premise that the partners, Joe Smith and Keith Syberg, would be closely engaged in all aspects of the search process, providing a collaborative, consultative solution to critical recruitment projects. With backgrounds in consulting and public accounting, the firm applies a focused, project-based approach to each assignment. Our intention is to form long-term relationships with the clients we serve.

Directors Joe Smith and Keith Syberg bring over 50 years of combined search experience to bear on every search project. The firm’s philosophy has always been to form collaborative, long-term relationships with a limited number of clients.

Smith and Syberg is currently the only Indiana search firm to be admitted to the Association of Executive Search Consultants.

The clients we serve are primarily driven by repeat business and referrals from satisfied clients. We are still working with several clients from 25 years ago.
