Fort Myers, FL (January 26, 2012) — Keith Trowbridge, President and CEO of Executive Quest, Inc., http://www.execq.com has announced a milestone of 18 years of success in the headhunting business. His company is an executive search firm for the timeshare, vacation ownership, fractional, and hospitality industry. “In challenging times such as these,” Trowbridge says, “it’s most important to hire the brightest minds available and have your resume lodged on an executive recruiter’s short list.”
“The concept of becoming a headhunter came about rather naturally,” says Trowbridge. After retiring with a distinguished career as a leading timeshare developer, Keith was frequently asked to provide connections for timeshare companies looking for executives. “Gradually, the personal recommendations led to establishing Executive Quest, Inc. 18 years ago.”
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. “Executive Quest has requests on the books at all times,” Trowbridge observes. “We have team members located in Texas and Florida, all working to keep our database of available personnel up-to-date and to stay in touch with prospective employers.”
Jim Perkins joined the Executive Quest, Inc. team five years ago at the Partner level. A University of Texas graduate, Jim most recently served as the Director of Resort Services for over 11years with a large timeshare brokerage firm servicing resort systems throughout North America. Both Jim and Keith have been participants at many ARDA, CRDA, and AMDETUR association meetings and have traveled to hundreds of resorts throughout the US, Canada, Mexico, and Caribbean systems.
Perkins says, “Over my five year plus association with Executive Quest, Inc. it is interesting to note that the decision makers are realizing that if they truly want better performance, it starts with the players they hire. Ads and electronic bulletin boards coupled with former buddy in-house referrals do not begin to offer the pool of talent decision makers need to consider. Corporate search works and Executive Quest is an invaluable resource in the resort industry.”
Executive Quest’s clients are typically looking for employees from almost every department, from finance, operations, IT and management department heads to construction management, service, rentals, exchanges and HOA professionals.” Because it is a tall challenge finding the right applicants for its clients,
Executive Quest developed its Resume Management Service http://www.execq.com/store.htm to get to know the candidate and better help the candidate become even more successful. A monthly EQI newsletter provides the latest industry information and available positions. “At a nominal cost of $89 a year, it is truly affordable exposure to great positions,” says Trowbridge.
