Alex Zebrowski

Director: Building Technologies

Company Description

Dual-site HVAC and Building Automation General Contractor

Job Title

Project Manager, Building Automation Systems

How long was client searching prior to our involvement?

Approximately 2-3 months

Did client have internal recruiting resources?

Company has an internal HR function with generalist recruiting capability and limited bandwidth.

Why was this a real problem for the client?

The Building Automation division manager had a planned retirement a couple years out and also had 25% YOY growth objective for his business unit. Our client was searching for a candidate who would help them develop and execute business immediately to meet their growth objectives and someone with the upward mobility potential to address their longer-term leadership and succession planning needs.

How did this opportunity help the candidate?

The candidate had developed his expertise over a 12-year career with a relatively small contractor in the same competitive marketplace as our client. He was very hands on and received very close attention and mentoring, but his personal growth desires had outgrown the capabilities and infrastructure of his employer. This leadership opportunity will enable the candidate to move from “more tactical” to “more strategic” as a project manager, while also providing a clear track for future career advancement within the new organization.
