Proper sourcing of top executive talent is time consuming, detail oriented work. Great executive search firms make the process so much more efficient while dramatically improving the experience for companies and candidates. McDermott & Bull is one of the best.
I had the good fortune to work with McDermott & Bull, building a world-class leadership team at Bendix King. Their strategic counsel, process, professionalism and dedication were instrumental in helping us recruit a number of exceptionally talented leaders over a multi-year period, positioning the company to re-emerge as a potent force in General Aviation in the years to come.
