Private equity firms Denver? Tom co-founded Spectrum Search Partners with Kevin Hahn in 2009. He leads the firm’s business development efforts, manages search assignments, and owns responsibility for several of its clients. He has spent the past 15 years in the human capital business, partnering with Kevin at two executive search firms (DHR International and Tri Worth Solutions), and serving as Chief Sales and Marketing Officer for FASTAFF, a leading travel nursing firm, whom he helped sell to private equity. His passion for helping small and middle market-sized companies grow and maximize their potential with exceptional talent is a big reason why Spectrum was started.
Don’t sweat it if you truly cannot hire any new employees now. However, you can, and should, still actively recruit and remain in contact with your candidates. Maintaining an open line of communication and being transparent about your current hiring operations will keep your company relevant and top of mind with candidates. Keeping them engaged, even if it’s as simple as checking in with them, increases the likelihood that they will want to come work for your company once you resume hiring.
Private Equity firms entrust Spectrum with hiring their senior most important leaders who will shape and determine the future success of their portfolio companies. We have successfully guided our Clients through hundreds of these processes. Selecting the right candidate accelerates the timetable for achieving the goals of your investment thesis, enhances valuations, and ultimately leads to a very successful exit. Many of these firms utilize us throughout their entire portfolio due to our process, persistence, and thoroughness. As a trusted partner, Spectrum has completed every search we’ve been hired to perform – a track record we are very proud of. If we have to engage with several hundred candidates to find your next leader, we will. Read extra info on CEO search partners.
Project which functions will no longer be needed and which will have to be adjusted, as well as what new functions will arise in this new economic climate. Assess how current staff can be retained and retrained in this new structure. Determine what openings exist after evaluating the current state of staff and functions. Factor in business continuity and redundancy needs when assessing workflows and staffing needs. Look for candidates who have worked successfully in virtual environments. All other qualifications being equal, the candidate who has worked in a remote capacity could assimilate faster. Look for candidates who are familiar with multiple virtual business platforms, such as Microsoft Teams, Slack, Zoom, Asana, Trello, proprietary VPNs, and CRMs of all kinds.
Each of the candidates we present to our Clients have the ability to be impactful, strong builders of high performing teams, and true business partners to CEO’s and their Board of Directors. Over 80% of the CEO’s we’ve placed and have gone through our process have hired us to build out their teams in the areas of Accounting, E-Commerce, Engineering, Finance, Human Resources, Information Technology, Marketing, Operations, Product Development, and Sales.
