Predictive Placement

Many leading search firms tout that they can effectively fit hard to find skill sets with perfectly paired prestigious executive positions.  Yet the truth of the matter is that these firms are more often described, by those who have utilized their services, as “inflexible,” “costly” and most specifically, “disengaged” in their ability to understand the nuances of the business and cultural fit.

This slapdash, “cookie-cutter” approach is not only inefficient, but expensive.  At Hudepohl & Associates, we don’t have this kind of time to waste your time with sub-par candidates, pooling talent incorrectly, burning valuable organizational resources and churning up, through senseless interviews, a higher number of surprise candidates unsuited for consideration.

“I have worked with Hudepohl as a candidate (placed as CIO) and then as a client when we were rebuilding our senior investment team.

As a client it was a partnership.  Gary was extremely adept at navigating our complex organization, and he was particularly astute in managing relations with key leaders.  I felt that Hudepohl had a strong grasp of our needs and, as a result, was able to source national candidates who represented top talent and were also well suited for our team.  Having been through numerous searches, I know firsthand how important it is to keep the process on track.  Gary had an innate ability to adapt well to changing situations while staying focused on the engagement and ensuring the highest quality outcome.  I would highly recommend Hudepohl to anyone looking for a search firm.”
