Growing an International Manufacturing Company Through Executive Search


Executive Search Case Study

Project Summary

In 2009, we started our close relationship with what is now a $300M international manufacturing and distribution company. In 2009, they were just passing the $15M mark and needed their first Controller. Over the next decade, we would partner with them again and again as they would hit a new phase that required someone with specific skills to help them reach their new target. This organization needed a recruiting partner that could deeply understand their dynamic business needs and provide high-level executive professionals to help them achieve their business goals. Accountants One was up for the challenge.

“We were working with a number of recruiting firms to fill our company's top financial position. Other firms repeatedly presented us with candidates that were not a good fit. Accountants One found me and quickly zeroed in on our needs. In a matter of days, they presented three qualified candidates to us. We are delighted with our candidate selection."
