Lisle, IL (PRWEB) May 22, 2013
The Overture Group, an executive search and placement firm headquartered in metro Chicago has opened a new office in Michigan – expanding its presence in the Midwest. The new office will serve the growing demand among small and mid-sized companies based in Michigan, focusing on manufacturing, distribution and service sector.
The firm’s decision to expand in Michigan was made when the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) announced it was directing millions of dollars in grants and incentives to generate business growth in the state. “From a strategic standpoint, we see this as a good time to enter the market in Michigan,” said Carrie Schochet, Director with The Overture Group who works out of the company’s Rochester Hills, Michigan location.
The Overture Group will continue to specialize in fitting executives and managers in finance, accounting, HR, operations and technology, often with private equity owned companies. These businesses look to Overture for the tools and resources to identify both active and passive candidates, and initiate the recruiting process. Schochet points out that companies are being very specific about who they are looking for – candidates with niche experience in a given role, or with strong industry expertise. She also sees increased hiring for mid-level management executives as an aging workforce moves closer to retirement.
The Overture Group hired Schochet to launch their Michigan operation, with qualifications that include more than 10 years of experience in executive search. She is a member of the Detroit Society for Human Resource Management and the Notre Dame Alumni Club of Detroit. Michigan-based companies looking to retain Schochet, or executives in search of a new position can connect with her through LinkedIn or via email at: cschochet(at)theoverturegroup(dot)com, or by calling her direct line at 248.690.9677.
