I was privileged to be on the search committee to recruit a successor to a highly successful and much-loved, long-time trade association and for-profit subsidiary CEO. O’Rourke & Associates farmed the country for prospects, including some that were not actively looking to move from their employment positions. Our committee was able to interview several highly qualified candidates, and our organizations are thrilled with our new hire. Team leader Bridget O’Rourke did a wonderful job of amassing candidates and guiding us through the very challenging selection process. Speaking for myself, and I suspect more than one member of the search committee, Bridget subtly (and professionally) weaned me away from my fixation on finding a clone for our retiring CEO, but instead helped me focus on finding a skilled and energetic leader, who only secondarily possessed the business, trade and technology acumen necessary to the position. I highly recommend the firm.
