Local Companies Increasingly Tap Retained Executive Search Firm to Fill Critical Leadership Roles

ATLANTA, Ga., May 10, 2016 – Handler & Associates, Atlanta’s longest-standing retained executive search firm, today announced the placement of a highly successful female executive at a growing Atlanta-based national B2B services firm.

As Regional Vice President for the client, the executive’s new role is to oversee the sales and operations teams and provide financial leadership for its Midwest Region. She will report directly to the chief executive officer, a transformational female leader herself.

Laura Lloyd, a principal with Handler & Associates, conducted the search.

“I chose Handler & Associates to find the right person for this position because it is a critical leadership role that requires not only skills and expertise, but also inspirational character and the ability to drive culture, create trust and build accountability,” said the client’s general counsel. “The Handler Team quickly presented quality candidates who met my criteria. Without the benefit of Handler & Associates’ strong relationships with top executives we would not have had access to this level of quality candidates. I am extremely pleased and excited about the outcome.”

Lloyd is an Atlanta native whose extensive and successful executive career in both for-profit and non-profit sectors consistently proves valuable to Handler & Associates clients. She is passionate about attracting great leaders for great companies, and is an expert at identifying transformational leaders who align with the client company’s culture and values. She believes this is the essential formula to empower the new executive to experience higher job satisfaction and deliver impactful results.

Handler & Associates is growing at a faster pace today than at any time in its 40-year history, indicative of the escalating challenge that companies face to attract great leaders. “The stakes are high in terms of cost, culture and business impact,” said Eric Handler, managing partner of Handler & Associates. “Great companies understand that only with the very best leaders in top roles will they be able to achieve best performance. That’s why they increasingly rely on us to deliver top leadership talent with speed, efficiency and an unparalleled performance guarantee.”
