I truly embrace Epsen Fuller’s Performance Based Assessment approach. As you know, we needed a real expert with guts who can get results – someone with superb analytical skills and technical background who could quickly get up to speed on 2ergo, our culture, our client base and the complex portfolio of services we offer – and then fly with it!
I found that your process organized the critical steps necessary to assess and define our needs, as well as the candidates’ abilities to meet our objectives. The analysis of our situation you conducted in launching the search, and the substantial amount of intellectual capital you brought to the table, provided “high value-add” input during our initial discussion. In addition, you easily struck a constructive balance between listening to and accommodating our needs and providing guidance and council to ensure that we set reasonable goals and expectations for our candidates and ourselves.
The slate of candidates you presented was superb and hit the nail on the head. In fact, as you know, I had a difficult decision between the three finalists! Your knowledge of the market and counsel throughout the decision making process, as well as your skillful handling of the negotiations with the finalist, were invaluable.
I have all the confidence in the world that our final candidate will be a valued asset to the company in his new position as Managing Director & President, 2ergo Americas.
Lastly, and on a more personal note, you and your team at Epsen Fuller/IMD were simply a pleasure to work with. Thank you also for the care and thoughtfulness with which your team organized my accommodations and interview schedule in New York.
I will be happy to recommend you highly to other CEO’s and business leaders for consideration in future executive search assignments.
