Atlanta Executive Search Firm CarterBaldwin Taps Dave Sobocinski As Managing Partner
Inc 500-listed search firm underscores its focus maintaining its leadership as the retained search leader for C-level executive positions and targets sectors in biotechnology and energy to expand its capabilities.
Our goal is to be in the top 20 in the next 5 years without compromising our service standards
Roswell, GA (PRWEB) April 1, 2008 -- CarterBaldwin Executive Search, a leading provider of retained executive search services, announced today that it has appointed Dave Sobocinski as Managing Partner. The firm focuses on placing C-Suite executives, officers and board directors in industries including healthcare, retail, consumer products, biotech, energy, telecommunications, manufacturing and non-profit sectors. CarterBaldwin was recently named for the second year running to the prestigious Inc. 500 list of America's fastest growing privately held companies. The firm cites among its strategic advantages the fact that the majority its partners have C-level and board experience, so searches for C-suite executives are captained by experts who are intimately familiar with what it takes to succeed at the highest levels.
Sobocinski began his executive search career with a top ten firm in Atlanta and progressed to Partner with responsibility for company-wide operations in Atlanta, Boston, and Washington, D.C. He was selected as managing partner at CarterBaldwin in part for his impressive record of fast-growth entrepreneurship as one of CarterBaldwin's three founding partners. In six years, the executive search firm has grown from one of 6,000 ranked executive search firms to one of the top 50 in the U.S.
Sobocinski has plans for further expansion. "Our goal is to be in the top 20 in the next 5 years without compromising our service standards," said Sobocinski. "Of course we want measured, sustainable growth, not growth for ego's sake. This goal is attainable through our proven search methodology and a great track record. When you can call any of our clients and get uniform advocacy and even impassioned confidence, especially in a service business where variables abound, you've really accomplished something."
Founding partner Price Harding III, shares Sobocinski's optimism. "I'm excited about our future and the direction we're going," states Harding. "Dave has the leadership skills for managing our fast-paced growth, the industry knowledge to expand our core abilities into new industries, and the clear understanding of executive search dynamics to continue to drive further growth. He really understands customer satisfaction, and that truly enthusiastic client advocates are essential to our growth."
Sobocinski will lead a partnership team with over 50 years of combined executive search consulting experience. A CarterBaldwin hallmark is that a partner is always an essential component of each executive search. A partner remains personally involved in each search from creation of the search profile and its ensuing strategy, through candidate sourcing, interviewing, assessing and the final negotations. 40% of CarterBaldwin's client roster comes from the Fortune 500, including Newell Rubbermaid, EchoStar, Dover Corporation, General Dynamics and Comcast. Other clientele include large privately held companies as well as a myriad of private equity firms and their holdings, such as American Capital Strategies, Unisource Worldwide, and Southwire, as well as a multitude of not-for-profit and venture funded pre-profit startups.
Under Sobocinski's leadership, CarterBaldwin is setting sights on developing a larger client roster in biotechnology and energy executive placement, and plans on expanding both geographically and through strategic verticals.
CarterBaldwin is a retained executive search firm managed by a partnership team with more than 50 years of combined experience.
