Confidential Search Results in Superior GM
December 7th, 2018
"I’ve been working with various recruiters for about 20 years and BestExec is exceptional," notes Jackie Strelow, Stonecast Strategic HR Executive. “They went above and beyond to find the perfect candidate, which was not an easy task."
A growing company based in Wisconsin, Stonecast has been supplying precast concrete and custom cast stone products to contractors, masons, and design-build firms for 20 years. Their search for a General Manager was more challenging than most for several reasons: It needed to be confidential and required extensive industry experience in a tight market, and because it was a top role in the organization, Stonecast required industry-specific knowledge and experience, as well as strong leadership skills—someone who understood the shop floor and had the business and financial savvy to drive continued growth.
BestExec provided extensive consultative services to help Stonecast define its ideal profile and process for filling the General Manager role, working diligently to identify and engage those candidates who best met their precise requirements. "I really appreciated the BestExec process," explains Strelow, "especially the initial steps taken to ensure they fully understood our needs."
The result was an exceptional hire who met Stonecast's specific requirements.
