Closing the Toughest Assignments
We have regularly been engaged by our clients for executive search assignments that are particularly challenging due to their vacant positions being situated in remote or lesser-known locations.
TWC International is particularly proud of having successfully completed certain assignments that are particularly complicated because of the geographic locations in which our clients’ executive positions have been situated. Many of these locations have shallow pools of talent due to smaller populations or due to a lack of specifically skilled local talent. In addition, some of these locations are often viewed as being less desirable places to relocate by candidates from larger communities or cities. We have developed particular expertise in this regard, and have reported on our experience with these challenging assignments in The Globe and Mail. These locations have included:
Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan
Hornell, New York
St. Felix de Kingsey, Quebec
Recruiting a Prime Minister
One particularly notable successful assignment: We are particularly proud of having completed likely one of the most challenging international assignments for which any executive search firm has ever been engaged, being that of the recruitment of the Chief Legal Officer for The World Bank Group. The position was situated in the Bank’s Washington, D.C. headquarters. After a highly rigorous, confidential and demanding international executive search process involving a greatly diverse and international Board of Directors, Board of Governors, management team and candidate pool, we succeeded in recruiting for the role the former Prime Minister of Peru, being The Right Honourable Roberto Danino. We received a warm letter of thanks from representatives of the Bank, who were delighted with our efforts.
