A private equity-owned oil and gas services company headquartered in a rural community needed to professionalize its accounting and finance function by hiring a well-qualified Chief Financial Officer. Although their community is one of the nation’s fastest growing oil boomtowns, no talent was available in the town with a population of about thirty thousand.
Our executive search consultants helped develop a job description and complemented it with a detailed community profile that highlighted what the city and surrounding region had to offer. We contacted 1,014 potential candidates in a seven state area. We evaluated 257 resumes and vetted 13 candidates.
Within ninety days of search engagement, we presented five fully vetted candidates with complete dossiers including detailed compensation information, resumes, extensive career history information, and our observations of their technical and cultural fit to the organization. Our search consultants handled all planning and scheduling logistics for our client’s interviews, 360-degree references on all candidates, and assisted with offer negotiation and compensation synchronization. Additionally, we referred our candidate to all required resources for his relocation and continued to consult with both parties during the new employee’s onboarding period. Our client was pleased to make a successful offer to a finalist candidate whose background included all required credentials and experience.
