Rapid growth Mechanical Contractor in Houston

Job Title

Controls Sales Representative

How long was client searching prior to our involvement?

Passively looking for candidates for approximately 1 year

Did client have internal recruiting resources?

No. The company does not have an internal recruiting function and not particularly well-suited for targeted and strategic hires.

Why was this a real problem for the client?

Our client has been experiencing unprecedented growth in the Building Automation Department. The Manager was wearing both the sales and operations hats. Placing this candidate allows the Manager to concentrate on the operations management and give the necessary time for sales development.

How did this opportunity help the candidate?

The candidate has three years’ experience selling Building Automation Systems. The candidate has also sold HVAC equipment and HVAC service agreements, repair and project sales for a local mechanical contractor. While he had received great foundational training, he recognized the company culture fits more in-line with him. This opportunity eliminates that problem and it allows him to grow professionally.
