Director: Building Technologies

Company Description

$60 Million Regional BAS Contractor

Job Title

Service Project Manager

How long was client searching prior to our involvement?

7 months

Did client have internal recruiting resources?

Yes, they have a local HR & Recruitment team

Why was this a real problem for the client?

The marketplace surrounding the client has become more and more competitive over the past 5 years. They have kept their prominence in the new construction market. However, they were seeing their competitors surpass them in the owner negotiated service/retrofit world. The candidate who ultimately accepted this position has a 10+ year track record of being one of the top sales representatives in the industry in the owner negotiated market in Southern California. With their additional help in penetrating the local market, the contractor will take back their status as one of the best service providers in the area.

How did this opportunity help the candidate?

The candidate was in an organization that has been through an immense amount of turmoil, layoffs, and restructuring over the past few years. This created a dynamic of uncertainty within the organization where no one felt “safe” in their position anymore. This opportunity allows the candidate to step into one of the most mature contractors in the area that has a track record of retaining and promoting their employees. In addition to this, our client’s commission plan is one of the most aggressive in the industry and will result in the candidate almost doubling their commission payouts for the foreseeable future.
