“The pessimist complains about the wind. The optimist expects it to change. The leader adjusts the sails.”

We work hard to identify the personal characteristics needed for a strong cultural fit within an organization. We can find talented professionals with great backgrounds, but if he or she doesn’t fit into the client’s corporate culture, then it will not be a match. You can teach skills or new methods, but you can’t change attitudes.
Since we do most of our recruiting work for chief executives, senior vice presidents, and vice presidents, we spend a lot of time working with clients developing executive compensation packages. The challenge with senior executive compensation is that you want to create a package that is competitive and attractive, but that also includes performance incentives and room for added rewards, based on success.
The Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) used to be a rare title given out to a select few, seen as a way to attract and or retain the top talent in marketing. Traditionally the CMO was viewed as the brand custodian and marketing guru responsible for lead generation. As marketing has evolved along with consumer behavior, the role of the CMO has evolved as well. Today’s CMO role is much broader and more pivotal to consumer brand success.
In the executive search profession we interview a wide variety of professionals during each assignment we conduct. Occasionally we see candidates who seem a bit young for an executive position, more often we’ll see an experienced professionals who might be perceived as “past their prime.” These candidates look terrific on paper, having excellent credentials and experience, however the hiring company may think the candidates are too old to suit their company culture.
What a lot of people don’t know is that there are two kinds of executive recruiters, contingent and retained. While that revelation may not have any impact on job seekers, it makes all the difference to the companies that rely on executive recruiters. You will usually find HR departments using contingency search for lower level positions and retained search for senior leadership and chief executives.
