The Search Process
Facing unrelenting competitive pressures, shifting market conditions, and ever-increasing customer expectations, organizations today can ill-afford to be complacent about leadership decisions. Drawing on deep insight into today’s business challenges and the qualities that define the most effective leaders, we apply a disciplined approach and sound judgment to every search.
Identifying and cultivating leaders and leadership teams that can take an enterprise to sustained business success is an ongoing process. It begins with defining and recruiting the right people, and continues with developing a robust succession pipeline for key positions and ongoing assessment of the leadership team in the face of new challenges and opportunities.
Our role is to partner with each of our clients, and in concert with them, develop an understanding of their culture and their current strategy for their organizational growth. We then applying a sound tactical approach to sourcing the best “top graded” talent available for our client. The more we know of our client’s culture and are able to get to the site where their need is immediate, the better we can develop what we call a texture of their environment. With that insight we can then screen and properly evaluate talent prior to sending them to our client. One of our goals is to provide several vetted and qualified candidates for each assignment thus allowing our clients to choose from among the best for their specific needs.
The quality of a company's talent is the single biggest competitive value proposition an enterprise possesses. This quality driven value chain will produce a quality corporate culture and a lasting brand.

Technological advancements, political volatility and economic uncertainty will continue to have a significant impact on petroleum and natural gas companies, requiring leaders with the diplomacy and strategic orientation to steer the course. Many executives also need global operations expertise as companies expand their footprint to capture reserves and reach new markets.
