CFO executive search firm Denver
CEO search partners Denver? In response to the recent COVID-19 pandemic, experts expect nearly 50 million new candidates to flood the market. For the first time in years, we’re seeing a shift from a so-called “candidate’s market” to an “employer’s market,” with a greater number of potential employees than there are open jobs. Many organizations and hiring managers are taking this time to rest on their laurels, assuming that candidates will come to them.
When hiring, give an edge to qualified candidates who have made it through multiple layoff rounds. They’re used to picking up the pieces after a massive layoff and are a better bet to know how to keep the operation moving smoothly. Be clear with them on company plans, and they may start imagining how to fix situations and turn things around. Identify candidates that have a track record of succeeding at things they’ve never done before. While most people can continually succeed in an upward linear fashion by building on prior experience, we are not in a linear period at the moment. The person who can repeatedly succeed in unknown situations is what some companies will need for fresh ideas and reinvention.
Each of the candidates we present to our Clients have the ability to be impactful, strong builders of high performing teams, and true business partners to CEO’s and their Board of Directors. Over 80% of the CEO’s we’ve placed and have gone through our process have hired us to build out their teams in the areas of Accounting, E-Commerce, Engineering, Finance, Human Resources, Information Technology, Marketing, Operations, Product Development, and Sales.

Luke joined Spectrum Search Partners as a Recruiting Director in 2018. He brings over a decade of search industry experience, with considerable expertise in cybersecurity, healthcare, and technology. He’s acquired hands-on external and internal recruiting experience having worked in retained, contingent, and corporate search environments, where he filled executive and leadership roles in the following functional areas: Accounting and Finance, IT, Sales and Marketing, and Supply Chain. After graduating college from the University of Missouri with Bachelor’s degree in Psychology, Luke joined an IT Staffing firm headquartered in St. Louis (his hometown) named Technology Partners, where he cut his teeth in the contingent search world. He then transitioned to DHR International, the 5th largest Retained Executive Search Firm in the United States, where he supported an array of Fortune 500 and privately-held companies. A promotion at DHR brought him to Denver, where he eventually started his own retained search firm named Kaleo, where he focused on the digital healthcare domain. Luke’s entrepreneurial DNA allows him to relate very easily to Spectrum’s customer base.
