Job Title

Plant Manager

How long was client searching prior to our involvement?

1 month

Did client have internal recruiting resources?


Why was this a real problem for the client?

The President of this company was being pressed in to handling the responsibilities of the Plant Manager, which was preventing him from executing plans to meet the growth objectives that their JV partner was expecting. This was becoming a very costly misuse of the President’s time.

How did this opportunity help the candidate?

The candidate we placed had recently separated from his previous employer. He had over 30 years of experience in corrugated converting and had deep family roots in the local marketplace that prevented him from considering relocation for new professional opportunities. While the candidate knew of our client’s business operation, he did not know that they had such a valuable and compelling leadership opportunity for someone with his specific skill set. We were able to open the candidate’s eyes and see what turned out to be a challenging and fulfilling new career opportunity.
