Following a detail-driven planning meeting with the client’s hiring team, Helbling representatives determined the goals and parameters of the search. Rather than publicizing and advertising the position, our team conducted discreet recruiting and networking efforts. They relied on recommendations from dozens of senior contacts across the United States.
Our search consultants researched appropriate talent within architecture, engineering, and construction firms as well as corporations of $500M or larger in separate industries, such as pharmaceutical and automotive, in order to generate a diverse and sophisticated candidate pool. Those in leadership roles with experience managing organic and/or acquisitive growth at multiple locations were of great interest to the hiring team.
The Chief Administrative Officer, who was previously placed at the organization by Helbling, served as the main point of contact for the group. With the incumbent HR executive still actively employed, he was able to offer our team an understanding of the role and provide insight into the evaluation of candidates. Helbling also interacted with the Chief Executive Officer during the review of finalist candidates as well as the Executive Chairman and a few members of the Board of Directors.
