Terry was an ace Controller in the real estate industry when I met her 5 years ago. Strong technically, exposure to the treasury side, and a leader respected by her reports.
Early in 2012 JustinBradley began a VP Finance & Accounting search for a mid-size government contractor. Smart client with demanding specs for candidates. We searched our database; reached out to our network; contacted our client’s competitors; and identified 4 solid candidates. Not Terry of course; she’s a real estate person.
Turns out though, the real estate business hasn’t been going well. When her company closed its doors 5 years ago, Terry landed a Controller role at a small government contractor. She implemented a new financial system, learned the industry and quickly rose to VP at this small company. I found all this out about Terry when I mailed a Thanksgiving card to her. She gave me a call and filled me in. And I filled her in about our VP Finance & Accounting search. She was quite interested and we thought a strong candidate. But she didn’t have a shot–we had completed the search two months before.
