TriSearch Names HR and Legal Recruitment Practice Leader

June 13, 2024 – Denver, CO-based TriSearch has expanded with the addition of Bill Mateikis as its new HR and legal recruitment practice leader. “We have been partnering with Bill for years as a referral partner,” said Bob Aylsworth, CEO of TriSearch, “And we couldn’t be happier to have him join our team! Bill’s talent and experience will be instrumental to our HR and Legal Recruitment solutions while his professional and personal character are second to none.” Mr. Mateikis says that he is joining TriSearch for what he expects to be his encore career, after 40-years in the HR, legal and compliance professions, including as an HR field generalist, chief human resources officer, law firm associate, in-house labor & employment expert, international trade compliance specialist, general counsel & corporate secretary, and professor of law.

“I decided to join TriSearch for two fundamental reasons, first, because of the TriSearch culture of client collaboration, internal teamwork, tenacious execution, high integrity, and values beyond words and second, but equally critical, my certainty that I will make a broader and greater impact for clients at TriSearch,” said Mr. Mateikis.

“Bill is known for his persistent drive for execution excellence, high integrity, candor, collaborative style, and his insightful approach to talent challenges from both the client and candidate perspectives,” TriSearch said. “Having spent the past three years at a retained executive search firm executing HR, legal and compliance searches, Bill’s longstanding perspective is that, as important as executive roles are to an organization, the human capital and talent needs most crucial to an organization’s success are below the executive suite.”

Prior to that role, Mr. Mateikis was general counsel and CHRO at Daikin Applied Americas, a U.S. based subsidiary of Daikin Industries, the global leader in air-related technology based in Osaka Japan, well known for its differentiating focus on people centered leadership. In these capacities he drove significant post-acquisition culture shifts which involved initiating organizational design changes, leadership upgrades, and human resource investments in strategic growth areas.

Leveraging Past Experience

Earlier in his career, Mr. Mateikis held various executive positions at Honeywell, Gateway Computers, General Mills and PepsiCo. He has also been a full-time visiting law professor at the Wayne State University and an associate attorney at a major law firm.
