Message from the Managing Partner
As founder and managing partner, I am determined to see our customers receive the best possible return on their investment. Working to these standards requires a combination of art, science, intuition, curiosity and thoughtful work. It also necessitates the highest levels of ethics and patience.
In searches, it’s difficult to find the perfect candidate. Over the last 30 years, I've hired hundreds - if not thousands – of executives at all levels. In my recruiting career with General Electric, M&T Bank and the past 20 years at StraussGroup, I’ve come to realize that reading people is the true catalyst in a successful search. This is much more difficult than just reading resumes.
The art and science of search requires a skill set that cannot be learned in a book. It can't even be taught. It comes from experience and an understanding that no two people and no two companies are alike. Therefore no two assignments are ever the same. Every customer of ours has a distinct personality. Recruiting the candidate that fits best within a corporate personality and the leadership team is what we do best. Unearthing that fit is what defines us.
As StraussGroup marks 20 years in search, we take pride in our achievements and acknowledge the people who have attained these successes with us, and for us. Our distinguishing qualities of skill, patience and experience remain steadfast as we stand by our trademarked philosophy, We Read People, Not ResumesTM.
