As 2017 comes to a close, we want wish our clients the happiest of holidays and extend our best wishes for a happy, healthy and fulfilling 2018.
At this time of year it's natural to look back, evaluate where and why we exceeded our expectations and what lessons we learned while also looking to the future and making plans.
At 20/20 Foresight Executive Search, our passion for our business and a determination to achieve great results for the clients we serve was as strong as ever this year. It must have been obvious to the marketplace as we saw a continued increase in search requests in 2017, up from 2016, which also was a great year. We also were honored to be included in Forbes 2017 list of “Best Executive Recruiting Firms.”
While all searches are as important to us as they are to our clients, memorable searches in 2017 included:
- Senior Vice President of Hospitality Development and Construction in Florida;
- Chief Financial Officer, Midwest, for a publically held real estate firm; and
- Chief Operating Officer for a Los Angeles-based multifamily property management firm.
We were pleased to see that 20/20 Foresight Executive Search showed strength in all of our core areas as we remained very strong in real estate and financial services industries. In fact, we enjoyed a nice bounce in the number of financial firms joining our client roster in 2017. Based on the strength of our business, we happily added 22 professionals – both recruiters and research staff – who we welcomed to our offices across the nation, Canada and Europe.
Looking forward to 2018, we project that the job market in the real estate and financial services industries will remain strong for 2018, and into 2019, when we envision a slowdown as the demand for executive staff will wane.
Again, our wishes for the happiest of holidays. We look forward to working with you as the year unfolds and opportunities arise to add to your team.
