How long was client searching prior to our involvement?

1 month

Did client have internal recruiting resources?

Yes, multiple internal resources as well as advertisements running.

Why was this a real problem for the client?

Our client had a facility that was severely underperforming in the market.  They had purchased the facility within the past couple of years and needed to insert a leader who had industry experience on both the operations leadership side but also the commercial portion of the business, while also needing to understand the target market segment our client intended to pursue.

How did this opportunity help the candidate?

Our candidate worked for an organization that was recently purchased and was fearful that overlap in responsibilities internally would cause his opportunity to be eliminated. At the same time, this candidate wanted to get in a position in which he could provide both short and long-term solutions to a growing organization.
