What do you enjoy most about the search industry?
“Getting to know the client organization overall and the specific needs of a particular position and then finding the “right” person that “fits” both our client’s culture and the experience profile of the position. I enjoy the diversity of projects in search and the people involved in the process, but it is the sense of accomplishment I get when I find the perfect candidate for the client that drives me.”
When you are not working, what do you?
“I spend my time with my wife and family on the east coast and the Midwest involved with their school and sports activities. I enjoy history, fine dining, wine, traveling, outdoor activities, my dogs and life in general!”
