Looking Forward

As companies and individuals continue to adapt to the COVID era, it seems that acceptance is a key component of moving forward. As a firm, we are seeing more of our clients acknowledge the dramatic changes to their business environment, which gives the certainty needed to plan for the future once again.

A recent industry-wide survey of executive recruiting firms revealed that, despite devastating metrics in March and April, the number of “opened” or newly-started searches has significantly increased month-over-month from May onwards. The industry is not back to 2019 numbers, and that is perhaps not a realistic expectation, but the steady buildup in activity is a good sign.

As you will see from our recent activity at the bottom of this newsletter, FlemingMartin has mirrored these findings; we have completed a number of searches and kicked off nine new searches over the past couple of months. Another positive metric is that our pipeline of prospective new searches continues to grow, and prospective clients are seeking to target and attract previously unattainable talent.

Even though this may be a challenging time, we continue to push ahead while being mindful of the changed landscape for us all. We hope that you are seeing some positive recent developments in your businesses as well, and we encourage you to share your stories of success.

Keep moving forward!
