The Scenario:

Company required a hard to find executive
A large financial services firm in Connecticut, owned by an international bank, needed an executive vice president for their credit card division.

The Action:

NPAworldwide members connect
The vice president of staffing for the financial services firm contacted an NPAworldwide member in Cincinnati, OH, which had previously provided staffing assistance to them. The Ohio recruiting firm did not have direct credit card experience, but was able to partner with an NPAworldwide firm in Ontario that specializes in that industry to identify candidates for the position.

The Result:

Search completed faster and more efficiently
The two recruiting firms met with the client to present an initial pool of qualified candidates and determine an interview process. Due to the speedy response, a second job order was also shared with the Ohio firm. Additional candidates were presented and interviews began within three weeks. Both positions were filled by the Ohio-Ontario NPAworldwide team.

During the search process, the client declared, “We have never had a search firm provide us with this many qualified candidates in such a short period of time for a position at this level.”
