Oct 2005 - Oct 2009
Managing Partner, Executive Recruiter
Leading a senior level team of recruiting consultants in bringing the Top 15% Talent- the "A" Players - to clients in North America and Europe. Abba Wireless uses a “PERFORMANCE BASED” search process specifically around our client's needs. Our "performance based executive search" requires one quarter of the estimated fee upon initiation of the search with the remainder due ONLY upon successful completion. Our perspective is simple and straightforward. - We give individual attention and top priority to each search until the search is successfully completed. The Abba Wireless search team is widely recognized by our clients as an indispensable resource in both executive search as well as key revenue driving or strategic hires that demand the same prioritized attention that the retained search provides. In addition to “key searches”, we recognize you may now or at some point be in a GROWTH MODE and there are other critical staffing needs that require guaranteed results. In response to that need, Abba Wireless pioneered the "contract search", allowing for a small initial investment from our clients while we SIMULTANEOUSLY conduct MULTIPLE searches. This has proven invaluable to a number of high-growth organizations that can't afford to hire B and C players. The truth is the bottom line is no two companies are identical and neither are their staffing needs. At Abba Wireless, we have created viable alternatives to traditional search that give our clients the flexibility and guarantee of performance that they need. We consistently leverage our industry knowledge, our extensive executive networks, and contacts with thousands in the mobile wireless industry to the fullest extent possible.
