Epsen Fuller Strengthens Mid-Level Recruitment Solutions
Scott Craighead to Lead TALENTKINECT Division
New York, NY (Oct 3, 2012)–Epsen Fuller Group, a leader in delivering high impact talent management, recruiting and executive search services, is pleased to announce the expansion of their senior leadership with the addition of Scott Craighead as Managing Director of the TalentKinect, the mid-management recruitment division of Epsen Fuller Group.
“Scott comes to EFG with a strong track record of success in recruiting, most recently in his own firm, Selective Search Partners, as well as a long entrepreneurial history,” says Managing Partner, Thomas Fuller. “He will lead and continue the development and growth of our mid-management recruiting capability, TalentKinect, which is truly redefining the way critical talent is accessed, assessed and acquired by leading companies seeking to build a significant talent advantage. TalentKinect is 'recruiting-redefined', to the benefit of our clients.”
A successful entrepreneur, Scott owned a B2B subscription-based business information publishing business, which grew 10-fold as he led its transition from print to a dynamic web-based solution. He built a team of over 150 people in over 100 countries and spent much of his time focused on the marketing and growth strategy. He successfully sold the company to business information leader TMP Worldwide and its Monster.com business unit, where he led the cross-selling of solutions to TMP Worldwide's other business units and corporate clients.
More recently, Scott has been a leader in the strategic recruitment field, establishing and leading the New York office of a UK headquartered search firm, where he led key executive search and recruitment projects for such clients as Goldman Sachs, BP, Siemens, Thomson Reuters and others. Scott then launched his own recruitment firm, Selective Search Partners, which is merging into Epsen Fuller's TalentKinect business unit.
"Scott brings a terrific blend of expertise in business management, entrepreneurial success, and strong client advisory and relations skills, making him an invaluable asset to any company looking for a solution to critical talent challenges facing their organizations," Fuller noted.
On joining Epsen Fuller's global talent solutions platform, Mr. Craighead commented, "Tom and the leadership team at Epsen Fuller have built a truly dynamic platform to assist those companies that are truly serious about the importance of talent. I am very excited to leverage their robust suite of services while building the TalentKinect business unit and solving my clients' most difficult talent challenges."
