TalentQuest, an Atlanta-based human resources consulting and software solutions firm, has partnered with the Georgia Economic Developers Association (GEDA) to strategize a search process for the Association’s top operating executive role. This new relationship is one of several TalentQuest has engaged in to help nonprofits and pro-business organizations grow and prosper.
TalentQuest immersed GEDA in an all-encompassing process, delving into the experiences, attributes, behaviors and competencies deemed critical for success for the Executive Director Role.
