Caldwell Expands Aviation, Transportation and Hospitality Recruiting Capabilities

September 7, 2018 – Toronto-based executive search firm Caldwell has strengthened its recruiting capabilities in the aviation, transportation and hospitality space with the addition of Frank Morogiello as a partner in the firm’s industrial practice.

Mr. Morogiello, who will be located in Dallas and head the firm’s aviation and hospitality practices, joins industrial practice leader Dave Winston, technology practice leader Jim Bethmann and industrial partner Tim Bostick.

“We remain focused on adding high caliber, seasoned partners who have the relevant experience and intrinsic passion, as we do, to deliver outstanding client solutions with transformational talent,” said John Wallace, chief executive officer. “Frank is a wonderful addition to the Caldwell team, adding greatly to our ability to serve clients in the aviation, transportation and hospitality industries.”

Mr. Winston offered high praise as well. “Frank is well-known, well-connected, well-respected and very experienced in the aviation, transportation and hospitality space, making him a fantastic addition to our global industrial practice team” he said. “I have known Frank for many years. His professionalism, expertise, business and customer focus, enthusiasm and entrepreneurial spirit will be a great addition to our firm, culture and client delivery capabilities.”

With more than 30 years of experience as both a search professional and airline executive, Mr. Morogiello has a deep understanding of the aviation industry, with relevant leadership and management experience in organizational structure, sales, human capital, customer relationship management, business strategy, logistics and distribution. He is particularly adept at recruiting C-suite executives and board directors to global companies.

Previously, Mr. Morogiello was a partner and head of the U.S. aviation & hospitality practice focusing on aerospace and defense at Odgers Berndtson. He also served as vice president and partner with Pearson Partners International. Before that, he was a senior client partner with Korn Ferry and a partner with Heidrick & Struggles.

New Offerings

Caldwell recently launched a blockchain advisory council aimed at driving the understanding, integration and implementation of blockchain technologies. The new offering for clients is in partnership with blockchain consulting firm, BTblock. The council, part of Caldwell’s broader Agile Talent Solutions platform, provides clients with the opportunity to gain deeper knowledge on the world of blockchain disruption and its portents, and potentially put this knowledge into action, said the firm.

“Blockchain technologies carry the potential for substantial impact within our client’s organizations, as they can enable the strategic reorganization of workflows and related structures,” said Chris Beck, chief operating officer of Caldwell. “Businesses in every area of the economy are rethinking how best to use talent and leverage it in different ways. With the launch of the Blockchain Advisory Council, we are the premier executive search partner for clients as they train and position the key executives who will lead their adoption of blockchain technologies.”

In another Agile Talent Solutions service, Caldwell recently launched an offering that pairs clients with agile executive talent on an as-needed basis. The firm describes its new Value Creation Advisory Solutions offering as a unique, flexible and cost-effective approach to creating value and solving core business challenges that require external expertise.

In an effort to unlock new value creation opportunities, Caldwell pairs clients with external talent on an as-needed basis. In most cases, said the firm, an advisory solution is a more nimble and cost-effective approach than an outside consulting firm or traditional operating partner at a private equity firm.

“Even with a highly accomplished leadership team, nearly every company could benefit from an objective, outside viewpoint from time to time,” said Mr. Wallace. “Our Value Creation Advisory Solution was created precisely to provide this unbiased, expert external guidance, and help our clients effectively execute on strategy by providing a mechanism for accountability, in addition to bringing best practices in terms of process and alignment.”
