|A former member||
My name is Lori Gleeman, and I own Gleeman Associates, a retained search firm that specializes in recruiting talent for the Executive Search industry. My clients include only retained search firms with a variety of specialties. My website is www.gleemanassociates.com .
I am currently representing a Boston based retained search firm that is seeking a future Partner to open a remote office, hopefully on the East Coast.
About the firm:
This boutique firm is a recognized leader in retained executive search and human capital consulting for emerging, high-growth companies, with specialization in the education, information, technology (including clean tech), and life sciences sectors.
Over the past decade their principals have completed more than 200 board and senior management search assignments, for a slate of clients that includes venture capitalists and private investors, their portfolio companies, and public companies with a strong commitment to entrepreneurship and technology.
They also have a European partnership which has enabled them to help both European and North American clients as they expand abroad.
The firm is seeking to bring in one or more new Partners to (1) broaden their industry scope; (2) leverage their investment in their brand and reputation, technology infrastructure, and state-of-the-art search methodology; and (3) share in the asset wealth created by the firm?s senior leadership.
What they seek therefore is an experienced and entrepreneurial rainmaker?someone with a proven track record in retained executive search?to take ownership of one or more industry sectors. This might be in any one of the following: financial services, telecommunications, life sciences, clean tech, manufacturing, digital media (including advertising), or consumer products and services. They are flexible on industry expertise.
This individual will be responsible for all phases of the search process, from client development through project management, working with our experienced staff of recruiters, researchers, and administrative professionals. In addition, s/he will play an active role in the daily operations of the company.
The Ideal Candidate:
The ideal candidate will bring a ?book? of clients together with the skills and desire to be (or remain) a million dollar biller. He or she will be thoroughly steeped in all phases of retained executive search. Specific competencies include?
* Deep knowledge of one or more industries?companies, executives, trends, conferences, and vocabulary
* Deep knowledge of executive search?client development, client management, project launch and supervision, and end-game?as well as recent trends in the areas of recruitment tools, search methodology, candidate assessment, and project management
* Experience and interest in helping to manage a professional services firm?staffing, delegating, excelling through best practices, growing, and making more profitable
* A desire to join an already successful search firm and to contribute to its rapid expansion
You will be able to work remotely, manage a virtual office, or out of the NY office if preferred. Locations of particular interest include New York, Silicon Valley, Washington DC, Toronto, Chicago, Atlanta, and Dallas.
The Career Opportunity:
For someone weary of life in a large search firm, the opportunity to contribute to the growth of a boutique firm?to have a seat at the table and share proportionally in its success.
For someone already with a boutique firm, the opportunity to join one of Boston?s most respected and successful boutique firms, with its many resources, and be part of its leadership team.
For a ?lone wolf? ready to come in off the range, the chance to affiliate, collaborate, learn, and create success beyond that possible with a single desk.
Compensation includes base salary, bonus (with draw), and potential ownership stake in line with an individual?s work experience.
