When is it advisable not to execute a search?
If we believe a search is not in your company’s best interest, we will recommend against conducting one. We put our clients’ needs first.
A Baltimore-based professional services company with annual sales of $120 million turned to Management Advisory Group to search for a division President. Following our standard practice, we researched the position by meeting key associates who would be working with the new hire. By the end of the first day, we realized we had already met the ideal candidate – inside the organization. We went back to the client firm’s executives to recommend that they not conduct an external search – they already had the best candidate. We declined the fee for that search, and we produced the right result: The internal candidate we identified was promoted and, a year later, is thriving.
