Alex Zebrowski

Director: Building Technologies

Company Description

Publicly traded Multi-Site Institutional & Industrial Mechanical Contractor

Job Title

Director of Sales & Engineering

How long was client searching prior to our involvement?

12 months

Did client have internal recruiting resources?

Yes, the client has an internal Human Resources organization with generalist recruiters.

Why was this a real problem for the client?

The previous director grew his career with the company over a 15+ year tenure. Due to this, he filled a very dynamic position within the organization. Most individuals in this industry have either an engineering mindset or a sales mindset. Finding the right person to backfill his position proved extremely challenging for our client for over 12 months, because they could not find the right person who could lead both teams.

How did this opportunity help the candidate?

The candidate is an ambitious professional who enjoys a challenge and growing organizations. He was with his prior organization for 10+ years and grew it to a point that the other members of the senior leadership team were complacent and no longer wanted to grow. Due to this, he found his day-to-day work stifling and somewhat frustrating. This opportunity allows him to step into a well-run organization and be a change-agent for growth in multiple divisions. This will ultimately lead to more intrinsic fulfillment for the candidate.
