Case Study: General Manager for a Holding Corporation

Wednesday, January 30, 2013  by Ed Bradstreet

Challenge:

The President of a holding corporation had an out-of-state SBU that was not making plans. The decision was made to confidentially replace the SBU General Manager quickly.

Solution:

B&B was contacted during Thanksgiving week. After reviewing reasons for failure and business strategies, B&B partnered to define search parameters. Over 70 candidates were identified and evaluated, 17 were interviewed, and six were presented within three weeks. The client interviewed four candidates in December.

Result:

The client diligently evaluated candidates prior to year end, B&B completed references, and all parties conferred on a unique offer. The new GM accepted and started January 17th.
