Chicago, IL (PRWEB) June 13, 2012
Koltin Consulting Group, the leading provider of management, marketing, and business consulting services to professional services firms, with a deep specialty in the public accounting and financial consulting sector announced the addition of Nelson Rodriguez, Managing Director and Nathan Knavel, Director, to the firm's growing Executive Search practice.
Now more than ever, accounting and consulting firms look to the hiring of lateral talent as the key to driving growth and profitability. There has never been a greater demand for lateral Partners and Managers with deeply specialized skill sets and experience. Yet, these highly coveted professionals are low in supply, and they have their pick of the best opportunities in any given market. And it takes a team of people to identify, evaluate, attract, and secure the very best talent in a timely and efficient manner. “Every firm in the industry wants world-class talent, and the only way to find world-class talent is to conduct a comprehensive search for it,” says Allan D. Koltin, CPA, President and CEO of Koltin Consulting Group.
The addition of Nelson and Nathan further demonstrates Koltin Consulting Group’s commitment to relationship-driven partnerships with accounting and consulting firms, functioning as an extension of a client’s team with a relentless level of commitment, objectivity and accountability.
Mr. Rodriguez has nearly 20 years of retained executive search experience and has conducted retained search assignments for both professional services and private equity firms across the U.S. Over the course of his career, Mr. Rodriguez has led search engagements in a variety of functional capacities including Partner, Practice Leader, CFO, Chief Information Officer, VP Finance, Controller, and Vice President of Sales and Marketing. Prior to joining Koltin Consulting Group, Mr. Rodriguez was a Managing Director with Waveland Executive Search. Nelson began his executive search career with DHR International, where he served in a variety of capacities including his role as Senior Vice President, in which he had direct responsibility for the firm’s high rate of growth through acquisitions and recruitment of executives. Mr. Rodriguez earned a Bachelor of Arts from Northwestern College in Minnesota. He is married with two sons and resides in Western Springs, IL.
Mr. Knavel joins Koltin from Workbridge Associates, a nationwide recruiting firm where he was honored as the firm’s 2010 Rookie of the Year. At Workbridge, Mr. Knavel helped more clients hire highly sought after candidates for critical roles than any other recruiter in the 400 person firm, doing so by building productive business relationships and focusing on how people will fit in and work together in a company’s environment and culture.
Mr. Knavel earned a Bachelor of Arts from the University of South Florida. He and his wife Erin reside in the Logan Square neighborhood of Chicago.
“We are thrilled to be adding these two experienced and talented individuals to our group. They will help us to continue to better serve our clients, and help firms meet their increasing talent needs,” says Geremy Cepin, Managing Director of Executive Search at Koltin Consulting Group.
