Tandem was approached by an engineering services firm looking to bolster its advisory practice in North America with expertise in M&A strategy and performance & operational improvement. This organization wanted to hire consultants coming from top-tier strategy backgrounds but did not possess the brand equity or compensation packages to attract such talent
Given Tandem is a smaller brand in the consulting services search arena, we have worked on dozens of mandates similar to this one in prior years and were able to quickly source relevant candidates at the Senior Consultant and Engagement Manager levels. We have now completed 7/10 guaranteed placements in the span of 6 months and are now being given the opportunity to work on partner-level hires for this organization. The majority of our placements to date with this client have also been DEI hires which is a huge need across asset-heavy, capital-intensive verticals within the consulting sector.
Partners in Performance
Tandem was staffed on a retained search for a long-standing client of ours to recruit a seasoned strategy partner who could assist them with commercial growth in the US. Our client typically prefers to hire partners coming from Tier One strategy shops like McKinsey, BCG, and Bain. We have deep expertise in assisting growing brands in recruiting high-level talent and we were able to present several MBB partners with highly developed books of business for this search.
After only 3 months we had a deep pipeline of candidates actively interviewing and we managed to help this client hire two Senior Partners as well as a Partner for their growing O&G/Resources and Energy Transition practice groups in the United States.
