New Frontier Search Company Seeks HR Leader for Filter Services Inc.

March 29, 2023 – St. Charles, IL-based recruitment firm New Frontier Search Company has been retained by Filter Services Inc., the largest filter distributor in Chicago, to help find a human resources leader. The individual will be charged with helping to drive the company’s next level of growth and build a dynamic culture. With Filter Services’ recent expansion into Indiana and Minnesota under the Mission Filtration name, the need to secure a strong HR leader takes on added importance for the company. Russ Riendeau, senior partner and founder of New Frontier Search, is leading the assignment.

“Today’s business climate is demanding more and more attention on maintaining and enhancing a positive and accountable culture in our company,” said Jeff Gradek, CEO and president of Filter Services. “We want our team to know we support their goals and also realize we are all accountable to focus on activities that improve our skills. This initiative to hire a full time HR leader allows us to now focus on the core elements of what successful businesses need to do in this post-pandemic world of business.”

He added: “New Frontier Search has continued to deliver top talent for our needs in the past and we’re confident in their ability to really understand our values, our culture, and our expectations of what a contemporary HR leader looks like.”

In January, Lindal Group, an international leader in aerosol dispensing packaging products, has retained New Frontier Search Company to hunt for a sales director for the U.S., an assignment also spearheaded by Dr. Riendeau. This executive will be expected to drive new revenue streams and leverage Lindal Group’s products to American manufacturers.

“Lindal Group continues to fly under the radar of many CPG, pharma, and industrial products company, given their conservative and modest profile,” said Dr. Riendeau. “Yet, their products and innovations with Europe’s influence continue to showcase their talent, adding also a level of curiosity to their customers’ approaches to packaging solutions.”
