April 9, 2019 – H. Leiner & Co. Corporate & Non-Profit Solutions has launched of a new division that will focus on executive search and professional placement for the non-profit sector.
“There is a significant need for this service and the decision to expand into this niche market is in response to the sheer demand,” said the company. H. Leiner & Co., founded 10 years ago, provides consulting in fundraising, strategic planning, non-profit branding, marketing and staffing. The firm has served more than 350 Jewish non-profits across the globe.
“As clients become aware of the critical need for professional infrastructure and development to successfully sustain and grow their organizations, they seek skilled and capable executives who can lead the change,” said Herschel Leiner, president of H. Leiner & Co. “Yet it has not been easy to find talented individuals with the right experience and skill-sets. A search and discovery is a full-time project that a busy organization may not have the time, energy or resources to run.”
“On the flip side, talented individuals who seek positions often have no way to connect to organizations that are looking to hire,” he said. “They may be geographically distant, or simply lack the connections that would get them an introduction for a job even if they are fully qualified.”
With decades of experience in the non-profit world, Mr. Leiner brings the knowledge, expertise and results-driven focus to identify and clarify an organization’s needs and to recognize top talent and potential.
Professionals who are looking to enter the field of executive leadership, or seasoned experts seeking new positions, are welcome to submit their resumes, Mr. Leiner said. “Warmth, diplomacy, and discretion are hallmarks of the H. Leiner & Co. experience, and confidentiality is ensured throughout the search and placement process. Constantly studying trends in the industry and blending it with decades of experience, we bring fresh perspectives and solution-oriented ideas so leaders can walk away with the tools they need to aim higher.”
Offering Search Solutions
Over the past year, a number of other organizations have expanded their retained executive search services or added them to their respective offerings as the top-end talent sector heats up globally. Here’s a sampling from the Hunt Scanlon Media archives:
Cielo, a strategic recruitment process outsourcing firm, is bringing its executive search experts into a global practice under the Cielo brand. Craig Pointon becomes Cielo’s EVP and global head of executive search. “It has become increasingly apparent in recent years that the executive search industry hasn’t evolved at the pace of the rest of the recruitment industry,” Mr. Pointon said.
London-based Publicis Media has launched an executive search practice which will be led by veteran executive recruiter Julie Jeantet. Ms. Jeantet will work closely with existing senior recruiters Mary Hurlock-Murphy and Marcus Wainer and will oversee Publicis Media’s internal talent mobility program for leaders.
Tigard, OR-based Motus Recruiting and Staffing has formed a new executive search division within the company focused on identifying and recruiting qualified candidates for senior-level and executive jobs. “Motus has built a strong reputation of providing exceptional talent and we will now complement those successes with the addition of our executive and retained search services.”
Molloy Associates, a recruiting firm exclusively serving the equipment finance industry, recently launched an executive search division. The newly formed unit will be led by Bill Purcell who joins the company as senior vice president and client partner. Mr. Purcell has more than 30 years of executive management experience in the equipment finance industry.
LifeSci Partners, a life sciences-focused consultancy, has launched LifeSci Search, a global executive recruitment service. It was founded “to address the broad deficiencies in the life sciences recruitment market largely centered around the specialization required for life sciences clients,” the firm said.
MediaLink, an Ascentia-owned advisory company, has appointed Trish Shortell as managing director, executive search, based in its New York office. In her role, she will lead the firm’s executive search practice and will report to Michael Kassan, MediaLink’s chairman and CEO.
