In addition, Kingsley Gate also introduced its new Synchronous Fit framework that leverages scientific cloud-based tools combined with insights from search consultants to provide the best fit between executives and companies. “The objective of the methodology is to ensure a lasting fit between client and candidate,” said Umesh Ramakrishnan, senior partner in the office of the CEO. “Synchronous Fit accomplishes this by ensuring that risks are mitigated in the search process. This is achieved in two ways: first, by splitting the interview process between expert humans and intelligent cloud-based software. Second, by quantitatively and separately scoring the experience, the attributes, the values and the references of the candidate.”
The firm also launched a new practice serving the financial services industry. The effort is led by two new senior partners, Mark Esposito and Ms. Scott, who both recently joined Kingsley Gate, also from Sheffield Haworth. With more than two decades of experience in the executive search industry, both Mr. Esposito and Ms. Scott bring financial services expertise and industry market intelligence to the firm. Kingsley Gate opened offices in New York and San Francisco recently to support the firm’s continued growth and expansion initiatives.
