We successfully found a stellar candidate with only two years of prior experience supporting a C-Suite executive. This experience, combined with an excellent academic record demonstrating strong intellectual and organizational skills, gave our candidate the ability to measure up to the CEO’s very high standards. The search was concluded on time, within budget, with a high performing executive assistant.
