Case Study

How we successfully filled a position for a demanding CEO.

Search Assignment:
One of our clients needed a new Executive Administrator for the company’s CEO. He was a tough and exacting person to work for, and 3 EAs had resigned over the course of 2 years. Two other retained search firms had been paid by the company but had failed to deliver. Our client chose the ShortList option, and we were able to find their ideal candidate within 1.5 months.
