Fort Myers, FL (September 29, 2010) — Keith W. Trowbridge, Ph.D., president of Executive Quest, Inc. www.execq.com has announced the company’s recent 2010 Best of Fort Myers Award in the Executive Placement category by the U.S. Commerce Association (USCA). The USCA’s annual “Best of Local Business” Award Program recognizes outstanding local businesses nationwide that they believe enhance the positive image of small business through service to their customers and community. Winners are determined based on the information gathered both internally by the USCA and by working with local business owners, trade groups, professional associations, chambers of commerce and other business advertising and marketing groups.
Executive recruiters are what the name implies: they seek out qualified, management-level candidates for their client companies, which pay a fee for their services. In challenging times like these it’s most important to hire the brightest brains available and to have your resume lodged on an executive recruiter’s short list. When the wrong, or even a close but not perfect candidate is hired (especially at a senior level), the costs are significant. Profits are lost, growth is inhibited and general morale suffers. Keith Trowbridge has the vacation ownership, timeshare and fractional industry connections having worked in the field for several decades as well as being chairman of the Timesharing Council of the former American Land Development Association (ALDA) of which American Resort Development Association (ARDA) became the successor. www.execq.com/keith.htm “I found I was frequently being asked to provide connections for timeshare companies looking for executives,” says Trowbridge. Gradually, the personal recommendations led to establishing this business in 1998 – Executive Quest, Inc., the executive search firm for the resort, timeshare, vacation ownership and fractional industry. www.execq.com
Executive search firms work to serve their corporate clients by placing executives with them. The Executive Quest team knows the timeshare industry players worldwide, understands the corporate cultures of the particular companies, and knows how to match the right executive to the right culture. Eight team members located in Texas and Florida work to keep Executive Quest’s database of available personnel up-to-date as well as stay in touch with prospective employers. “Our clients are typically looking for employees from almost every department,” Trowbridge observes, “from finance, operations, IT and management department heads to construction management, service, rentals, exchanges and HOA professionals. Executive Quest continues to find the best of the best.”
Trowbridge also writes a free monthly on-line newsletter with better than 20,000 subscribers to stay connected with friends and associates he’s known over the years of his career and keep them informed on industry happenings. B2B banner advertising space is available in this monthly online newsletter as well as on Executive Quest’s website. www.execq.com/advertise.htm
