WE KNOW LEADERSHIP
We excel at sourcing executives who drive value and/or know how to run things - regardless of industry. Thus, the bulk of our search work is for CEO, COO, President, GM, as well as other key C-Suite and VP-level roles (Marketing, Sales, Finance, HR, Technology, etc.) and Board Directors. All Bialla Partners have been successful senior operating executives with leadership roles (CEO, GM, CMO, etc.) in relevant companies, and thus intimately understand what it takes to drive a successful strategy, run an efficient operation, scale a business, build our enduring brand, etc. Because of this experience, we know how to assess critical leadership talent better than most and mitigate the risk of a bad hire.
WE ARE FAST AND EFFECTIVE
In a recent CEO replacement search a leading eCommerce company, we had 5 extremely qualified candidates in front of them within the first two weeks – for one of whom was the ultimate hire. We placed the CMO for a $1B Retailer within 4 weeks. We are efficient and responsive – the “Navy Seals” of the search business.
WE DON'T HAND OFF SEARCHES TO JUNIOR ASSOCIATES
The individual Partners do the work and personally conduct each search. You wouldn’t trust a brain operation to an intern and you shouldn’t trust your critical recruiting to a junior associate. Thus, each Partner only works at most on 3 or 4 searches at a time. We value quality over economic expediency and feel this way of working ensures the best results.
WE ARE ABLE TO SOURCE FROM A WIDE VARIETY OF COMPANIES
Unlike many of the large publicly-held search firms, we are not blocked by numerous client or candidate conflicts. This means we can recruit freely from a wide field of companies and candidates.
WE ARE EXPERTS IN FIT
Today, finding résumés that match a spec is the easiest part of Executive Search. Successful hires require much more in depth qualitative assessment and are ultimately all about FIT.
Intellect, technical & functional skills, sector knowledge, leadership & management competencies, nuances of skills required to achieve success in any client’s unique situation.
Flexibility/adaptability, on-boarding, experience of previous moves, planning first 90 days.
Remuneration, location, % travel, formal qualifications, family circumstances.
Company story, culture fit, values & ethos, structure & style, risk profile.
Deliverables short/long, career progression, remuneration.
Structure, diversity, chemistry fit with other key executives.
We address all of these issues from the outset of a search with you and evaluate every candidate in these areas. And because we are experienced operating executives who have been in the very shoes of those we are evaluating, and actually the ones doing the interviewing and evaluation, we are dramatically increasing your odds of a successful search outcome.
The net of all this is we don’t just deliver competent capable talent, we deliver inspired talent.
