CRStager marketing & audience development does not offer executive search services. We are happy to interview pre-identified candidates for marketing or executive level positions, and we can also perform background checks on these candidates. We can recommend several reputable firms with proven long-term placement records for your search needs.
In the course of providing interim marketing counsel at a fee, the added expense of providing a marketing director search would pose an inherent conflict of interest.
A firm who wore both hats was recently criticized for the practice by a newspaper in their client's market. "The interim management group that is also conducting a management search has an inherent conflict of interest. 'All they had to do was keep searching ad nauseam and collecting more and more paychecks,' [the orchestra member] said. 'They charged an exorbitant fee for an executive director search [and we] ended up with no one' [while the interim executive director the firm provided] was being flown [in]...every week."
Whatever the unreported extenuating circumstances of this example, CRStager marketing & audience development wishes to avoid any appearance of conflict or impropriety. We prefer to focus our full attention on your marketing needs.
