SENIOR MANAGER/DIRECTOR INTERNATIONAL TREASURY
Problem: An expanding public Houston-based Energy Services Company, doing 75% of its business outside of North America, wanted to hire someone to upgrade its Foreign Exchange Hedging processes. The treasurer had very limited FX experience himself, so he needed to hire someone who could work relatively independently and had in-depth knowledge of FX best practices.
Situation: We talked to many local candidates but were unable to find someone who had the skill set and experience necessary to fill this slot. The good local candidates were either overqualified for this job (making more money) or didn’t have a broad enough background to set up the new processes required.
Solution: We recruited a University of Texas graduate who had worked for a major tech company in the Pacific Northwest for six years almost exclusively doing FX hedging. This individual was interested in relocating to the Houston area where both he and his wife grew up, and he was a renter, so he could relocate cheaply and quickly. This person was interested in being “a bigger fish in a smaller but growing pond”. Since being hired, he has done an outstanding job and eliminated millions of dollars in potential FX loses.
SENIOR MANAGER/DIRECTOR – CAPITAL MARKETS
Problem: Our client had been looking for almost a year for a Senior Manager/Director of Capital Markets but seemed no closer to making a hire than when they started.
Situation: The hiring manager said that the candidates we and others had recruited were good, but not good enough to be hired. The feedback we were getting through HR was NOT actionable. Accordingly, we suggested a meeting of all parties.
Solution: We were able to fill the job six weeks later because we learned at the meeting that the hiring manager needed someone with strong experience in derivatives, which previously had not been listed in the job description or mentioned in any conversations. The woman we placed was using derivatives as part of the Asset Liability management process for a bank holding company. This woman set up a derivatives book which swapped billions of dollars of fixed-rate, long-term debt for short-term, floating-rate paper, saving millions of dollars in interest costs each year. This woman was promoted several times.
