How we delivered a diverse Operations Leader in an industry that is notorious for its lack of diversity.

Search Assignment:
When we took on a search for a diverse Director of Operations, we found a candidate who was a woman and perfect for the role. However, her husband, who was in the same industry, also needed a position if they decided to move for her career, because their last move had been for his. Our client capitalized on the situation and made two senior-level hires from one search assignment. Our client had chosen ShortList for this search, because they wanted to keep the org charts for future hires.
