December 21, 2018 – Glendora, CA-headquartered executive search firm the Everest Group has expanded with the opening of a new office in Lake Tahoe in Zephyr Cove, NV.
“The new office in Lake Tahoe will allow for close proximity to Nevada, where we are seeing an influx of fulfillment centers with the growth of e-commerce over the past few years,” said Matt Albanese, CEO of the firm. Lake Tahoe is a large lake in the Sierra Nevada Mountains separating California and Nevada. The area is known for its beaches, ski resorts and beautiful scenery. “These are just a few reasons why we selected Lake Tahoe to open our second office,” said Mr. Albanese.
The area’s economy is tied to tourism (especially entertainment and gambling related), mining, and cattle ranching. Its industrial outputs are tourism, mining, machinery, printing and publishing, food processing and electric equipment. Companies in the area include Vail Resorts, Caesars Entertainment, BCH Mechanical, Marriott Vacations Worldwide and Heavenly Ski Resort, among others.
The Everest Group has operated as a retained executive search firm for over 25 years, working with both Fortune 50 and 500 domestic and international clients. The firm specializes in the following functional areas: supply chain, distribution, logistics, transportation, information technology and industrial engineering.
Its roster of clients include: Nike, Performance Team, MOL Logistics, Big Rock Sports, DB Schenker, Global Brands Group, Rockport, Home Depot, FedEx Supply Chain Solutions, APL Logistics, Faro Logistics Solutions, Benjamin Moore and Bridgestone.

Mr. Albanese founded the Everest Group in 1992 with a primary focus on third-party logistics, ocean, trucking, rail/intermodal and mass retailers. His 20-year career began with a domestic Fortune 100 retail company, working in the traffic and distribution areas. He then spent four years with an international paper manufacturer, focusing on inter-modal transportation and domestic international ocean distribution. The balance of his 20-year career incorporated various distribution and logistics management positions throughout the U.S., with a Fortune 150 direct-selling consumer products company.
Mr. Albanese recently shared his views with Hunt Scanlon Media on the state of recruiting in the sector his firm serves. “We are seeing a talent shortage of qualified supply chain professionals at all management levels, said Mr. Albanese. “This is being driven by the digital age which has substantially impacted consumer buying habits – including an increase in reverse logistics.”
“The industry is lacking technically qualified individuals with strong analytics and systems knowledge to keep up with the digital transformation the supply chain industry is facing as a whole,” he said. “This is similar to the need for qualified software engineers we saw 15 years ago as a result of the growing needs within the technology space.”
