Yes, they posted a job ad

Why was this a real problem for the client?

This is a flagship plant within the company and they had an individual leave after 45 years with the company.  He was managing the largest and most critical department of their site.  This vacancy created a significant amount of stress on the other department managers along with the Plant and General Manager

How did this opportunity help the candidate?

We identified a candidate working for a family owned business; he had been there his entire career. The management team he was hired into was retiring in the next year and things had been changing drastically. Our opportunity gave him a real shot at continued growth and brought him 100 miles closer to his other family members. Our employer indicated that he is one of the best candidates he had ever interviewed.
