Alex Zebrowski

Director: Building Technologies

Company Description

Publicly-Traded, Multi-Site Institutional & Industrial Mechanical Contractor

Job Title

Sales Engineer

How long was client searching prior to our involvement?

2 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 Sales Engineer that had managed this territory for 5+ years, decided to retire when the COVID-19 pandemic hit. Due to this, the Sales Manager was not only managing a team of Sales Engineers, but also taking over as the primary Account Manager for this book of business. This was not sustainable, due to location and time constraints. Based on this, they needed to find a strong technical individual that could work with these clients day in, day out and ensure that these clients did not move to a competitor.

How did this opportunity help the candidate?

The candidate was part of a company-wide reduction in workforce in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to this, he was on the career market for 4 months, prior to us speaking with him. The candidate has a diverse background in both industrial operations management at the plant level, as well as mechanical construction. He was finding it hard to locate a strong opportunity that would benefit from his years in both manufacturing and construction. Luckily, this organization specializes in mechanical construction within manufacturing environments. Due to this, the candidate has the perfect opportunity to combine his skill sets and help both his new organization as well as his clients.
