Although the first two companies do link potential employers and employees, CTPartners specializes in the "C-level" business candidates, meaning it digs deep on higher-level management and focuses on recruitment, Sullivan said.
Sullivan insists his company has always prided itself on the amount of research and background checking it does on potential employees. It helps with the entire hiring process, too, even helping the new candidate get situated in his or her new work environment.Greenberg wondered if there was less desire from candidates to become a CEO due to the increased pressure, but Sullivan said this is not the case. "At the end of the day, capitalists still want to get out there, put themselves on the line and do what's right for America, do what's right for shareholders and do what's right for employees," he said. The only caveat? The scrutiny and expectations are at all-time highs. However, according to Sullivan, those with knowledge of the digital space will have an upper hand. "Over the last 18 months the whole digital phenomenon has been increasing at an increasing pace," he added. The demand continues to climb for executives who can increase sales at a more efficient rate and still maintain profitability, he concluded. -- Written by Bret Kenwell in Petoskey, Mich.
