SEARCH ASSIGNMENTS

+ Chief Operating Officer
+ Director of Construction
+ Director of Architectural Design
+ Director of Contacts

CHALLENGES
Our client was ready to start construction of a $7B world-class megaresort. They planned to assign the leadership team from their in-house design and construction group to the project. This strategy created a void that needed to be filled immediately. The company needed to replace their President of Construction, Director of Construction, Director of Design and Director of Contracts. Although we had never taken on a similar search in this market the client was confident that we had the resources and search experience to meet their high standards and accelerated timetable.

 

SEARCH PLAN + RESULTS
We took a very strategic candidate sourcing approach to our search due to the high visibility of the client, their stringent requirements, and the project they were building. Rather than casting a wide net, we put together an exclusive list of our favorite and most successful executive contacts from our personal database. We did not want to take any chances with individuals with whom we had had no prior contact. This approach allowed us to complete all of the open search assignments in a very expedient manner.

+ Director of MEP Engineering
+ Director of Structural Engineering

CHALLENGES
Our client made a strategic decision to bring their MEP and Structural Engineering in-house. To do this they needed the support of their MEP and Structural Engineering suppliers. Before the search we were asked to meet and consult with the respective leaders of the two engineering firms as they would be involved in the selection process of the new in-house MEP and Structural leaders. Understandably this situation needed to be handled delicately. Both of the respective firm leaders had a vested interest in helping their client find the right person.

 

SEARCH PLAN + RESULTS
We first worked with the client to help them define the candidate profiles for the MEP and Structural Engineering searches. The candidates needed to come from local competitors with experience in the markets our client worked in. They needed to be creative solutions oriented engineers, proven managers, have superior communication skills, be client focused, be able to participate in BD, and most importantly have the motivation and ambition to build an engineering department from scratch.

 

We decided to take advantage of our client’s positive reputation to attract the best engineering talent in the market. We marketed the opportunity to firm principals and senior leaders who were attracted to the opportunity to build their own engineering groups while playing an integral part in defining the future of our client as a top AEC firm.

 

We conducted both assignments simultaneously marketing the opportunity to a local candidate pool. We successfully completed both assignments in less than four months.
