Potential clients sometimes ask how Kimberly Bishop Executive Search competes with the giant search firms; Kim’s answer, “It’s all about relationships leading to the best talent and a curated list of qualified candidates that match the client’s specifications and corporate culture.” You won’t get a board book filled with the “usual suspects.”
On a recent board search, Kim offered three candidates, all of which the client wished could be placed on their board, but there was only the one opening.
When another company called and told her their previous search firm said they could not find a qualified woman to fill a board seat, Kim’s response was “That’s not possible” and successfully completed the placement.
Companies and boards often need insight and guidance on organizational structures and future talent planning. Kim’s corporate leadership experience gives her the edge in providing these services for select clients.
Consulting services also includes advising companies on their internal recruiting process and determining which roles to hire first -- in particular companies experiencing tremendous growth -- as the wrong hire can be incredibly disrupting.
