The Global Nature of DSML Executive Search
by Doug Seville
During a recent conference call with our international recruiting network, CFR Global Executive Search, the leaders from North and South America shared the importance of serving global clients. Having a trusted network of professionals who share the same values and expertise, can effectively meet the needs of a multi-national company. More importantly, the members of CFR like DSML have industry experience that adds real value to our client searches.
Exceptional Client Service Delivered Worldwide
DSML Executive Search only refers clients to international search firms, either inside or outside of the CFR network, that comply with consistent operating and quality standards. This means “local” resources that understand the client’s business, the specifics of the client’s industry and the local market.
There are five key components that describe exceptional Global service delivery
- Understanding our clients needs no matter the location or situation
- A commitment to deliver on promises day after day for all clients
- Being clear, open and up-front in communication
- Having the right people to deliver for our clients
- Providing unexpected value by partnering with client’s growth strategy
A Global Commitment to Exceptional Client Service
DSML Executive Search is well connected to access the best search experts for our client’s international needs, yet flexible enough to be reactive and innovative in how we meet client challenges.
This is most especially important when an organization is setting up with their first hire(s) in a foreign country. How many times, as an example, have we at DSML Executive Search heard that a company chose to set up their US office in a specific location merely because they had a friend who had a relative who lived in that town, or one of their distributors was located nearby. Or, even in Chicago, we have seen several occasions where a foreign company will rent office space prior to determining where the talent pool for their industry is. As an example, the Medical Device and Life Science industries in the Chicago area are NOT even close to the downtown center. Renting an office in the city might seem prestigious however the talent pool is about 1.5 hours away by commute.
This is true no matter what country the new subsidiary is to be opened, whether it be Santiago, Chile or Paris, France. DSML Executive Search provides a no-charge consultation to international (multi-national) firms which enables us to best serve them directly or refer them to a partner firm, either domestically or abroad, who might be better suited to meet their recruiting needs.
If your company is seeking to recruit for a key position, such as CEO, COO, President, VP or other Senior level role, have a conversation with DSML Executive Search to ensure your search includes a “thorough” process and a “success based” strategy.
