President, National Design/Build Construction Firm
A national design/build contractor recognized that the landscape had changed dramatically following the recession and new leadership was required to institute change to adapt to the new market conditions. The PJ Lewis Group was retained to conduct a nationwide search to locate a new President that had exposure to new markets and had been through serious downturns. After numerous conferences with the Chairman and Executive Committee, a list of “change experience requirements” was developed and a highly targeted search plan was conceived and deployed. The PJ Lewis Group identified companies and the key leaders that had negotiated prior downturns in the market and had succeeded and grew despite the market conditions. Six highly talented candidates were interviewed and one hired within a four month timeframe. The company is now into its second consecutive year of increased revenue.
Director of Construction, Commercial General Contractor
A regional general contractor had won several new accounts that were not only out of their main region, but also in different time zones. The new work was beginning to stretch its current staff and experience levels to the point that some deadlines were being missed and project details were being overlooked. The PJ Lewis Group was hired to locate an experienced Director that could pick up the new area and client and give assistance to the VP of Construction in the training of new project managers and estimators. The company had historically grown their talent in-house, and a hire at the Director level was a very delicate issue. The PJ Lewis Group located a person with identical project and geographic experience that mitigated internal concerns and was extremely well received by the client.
