Dallas Executive Recruiter Celebrates 20 Years


Carl J. Taylor & Co., a Dallas Executive Recruiting firm, recently celebrated being in the executive search and recruiting business for over 20 years. Carl J. Taylor & Co. is a retained Executive Search Firm which has successfully worked with companies to help them fill unique senior level and one-of-a-kind positions. The firm specializes in serving clients in Texas (Dallas, Fort Worth, Austin, Houston, and San Antonio), but it has also worked with clients all over the U.S.

Before making the jump to the executive search profession, Carl Taylor, president of Carl J. Taylor & Co., spent eleven years in the management consulting and public accounting profession managing engagements in financial analysis, operations improvement, strategic and business planning and organization evaluation. This experience in the consulting world enables Carl to quickly learn a clientís business and, more importantly, its culture which is vital to the successful completion of a critical search.

Carl J. Taylor & Co. clients have ranged from start ups to multi-billion dollar corporations. The firm has assisted companies in the Manufacturing, Energy, Construction, Education, Financial Services, and Utilities industries, and it has completed numerous searches for Professional Services Firms, including Management Consulting, Public Accounting and Engineering.

When asked how executive hiring has been affected by the current economic slump, Carl had this to say:

"In many regions of the country and in different sectors of the economy, we are seeing good evidence that a bottom has been reached and we are in the start of a recovery. As a executive in charge of making key hires or as a business owner, you can take full advantage of this slow time and hesitancy by companies to hire, by identifying and attracting new leaders to your executive management team and distinguish your company.

Many companies are focused on lowering costs, postponing projects, and even laying off people; however, every company must also be planning ahead for the next move up in the business cycle. Inherent in this planning process is the evaluation of your executive team and other key leaders in your company.

The time to take action is now, because as the economy begins to show signs of recovery, many companies, including your competition, will begin to assess their leadership needs for the next move up in the economy"

Another challenge Carl has faced in his 20 years in the executive recruiting business is educating companies that executive search services are not only for big companies. The reason Carl gives for this flawed belief is that most of the stories you hear and read about executive search involve assignments for well known Fortune 500 Companies and their high priced executives.

"Itís in fact the smaller and mid size company which can benefit most from executive search services. A single senior level hire will in most cases have a much greater impact on the success and growth of a smaller company, and the hiring of the wrong person in a key role at a smaller company can be disastrous. Furthermore, smaller companies usually have fewer available internal resources and less experience identifying and attracting top candidates for new management roles.

We have even been engaged by companies with fewer than 10 people to help them fill a key position because they know how vital finding the right person is to the success of their company"
