Client success story – Reese Pharmaceutical Company
An example of how Organizational Architecture assisted its client with a recruiting challenge is our recent work with Reese Pharmaceutical Company and its search for a Vice President of Operations.
Reese Pharmaceutical Company [reesechemical.com] supplies the pharmaceutical industry, and ultimately, the consuming public, with high quality, unique medications that are stronger and more effective than either the name brands or their generic equivalents. Reese is located in Cleveland, Ohio.
Tony Lamonica , Controller at Reese Pharmaceutical Company, said,
“We never had to hire this level executive before. Additionally, we had to make sure that the person we hired clearly understood our particular needs, and could be successful not only in our industry but in a family-owned business. And they needed to be a willing mentor to our new generation of family leadership.
“Organizational Architecture worked closely with us to think deeply about the experience needed to be effective. More importantly, they helped us think about our culture and the unique challenges of a family-run business. The candidates they screened for us had characteristics that matched ours, and made the selection process so much easier for us. They really helped us be successful in our search.”
As we tell our clients…often finding the right person means doing a little bit of homework on the front end and determining the success factors beyond the experience…critical behaviors and traits can make the difference in a successful hire. Identifying them and developing screening criteria will make your process a success.
