Executives from the Houston, Austin, and Dallas offices of CPI, including: Michael D.

CPI Houston, a CPI partner for over a decade, was recognized with awards for its regional and global sales successes in CPI services including Manager As Coach Learning Series, career transition, and New Horizons, a retirement planning program. These programs are representative of CPI’s leading edge services that enable organizations to more effectively address their pressing talent management issues.

Sheryl Dawson, President of CPI Houston, shared, “We are proud to represent CPI in the Texas markets where the booming energy, manufacturing, health care, and chemical industries are a magnet for talent from around the world. The confluence of talent management challenges created by the economic growth in an exploding US oil and gas industry, the maturing and diverse workforce, and a widening talent gap, provides a unique opportunity for CPI to help organizations in such crucial areas as succession planning, high potential development, knowledge transfer, and performance management.”

David Hemmer, President and CEO of the global organization, commented, “CPI Houston has demonstrated its leadership to further our brand and promote CPI’s innovative and world-class programs. Career Partners International’s talent management solutions are designed to be delivered globally with consultants and coaches certified to implement in their local markets.

Our expertise in recruiting, executive coaching, leadership development, as well as career transition enables us to partner with organizations across the talent cycle and create a value proposition that significantly enhances their alignment of talent and business goals for improved individual and organizational performance and increased bottom line results.”

In addition to conducting regular business, attendees heard Maria “Sully” Sullivan, PCC with Deloitte present on their leader development program at Deloitte University. With a next-generation focus, Deloitte’s leader competencies align with the future needs of the organization to ensure success in their competitive markets. Ms. Sullivan shared, “Recognizing that the top organizations in leader development consistently outperform the market, Deloitte invests in their high potentials through on-the-job training, mentorship, external coaching, strategic deployment, and rapid job mobility. Our global relationship with CPI for the delivery of external coaching is instrumental in assisting select leaders to assess and optimize their potential in alignment with our business strategy.”

Hemmer shared, “Career Partners International’s continued growth and success depends on our commitment to clients like Deloitte who understand the vital role of talent in achieving their organizational goals. That commitment was evidenced not only by the enthusiasm of our attendees at this Annual Meeting, but by our record sales results for 2012.
