Kincannon & Reed goes to any lengths to help our clients find their candidates. For one of the world’s largest hydroponic horticultural producers, we worked to locate a Farm Manager with a rare set of experience and qualifications. Not only did the candidate need to be well-versed in greenhouse production of the client’s particular product, he or she had to have strong business management skills and an impeccable sense of teamwork, be willing to relocate for a year-round position in Mexico, and be fluent in Spanish as well.
To identify candidates meeting these requirements, we literally searched around the world. Following a systematic process of contacting sources in suppliers and allied industries, we developed a list of strong candidates from nine countries on four continents. We eventually found the successful candidate working in Israel, who relocated half-way around the world, and is now helping the client’s Mexican operations thrive.
