KULPER & COMPANY….where academia meets corporate innovation
Our firm focuses on completing senior level search assignments for universities and companies. We enthusiastically work at the intersection of universities that create new knowledge through their research efforts and with companies that operate at the forefront of innovation. We are retained search firm; we work exclusively on search assignments for our clients—the hiring organization—to help qualify and attract proven talent who will drive the growth and development of your company or university. We strive to continually improve every element of our service capability and take pride in listening and the responding in creative and highly individualized ways to best serve our clients.
Our firm is having a very nice year, so far, and the outlook for the second half is positive. We measure success based upon the number of inquiries we receive for our executive search consulting services and top-line revenue received. Based upon both indicators, we are up over 35% in comparison with the first six months of 2012. We anticipate hearing from more of our university and corporate clients who need the right leaders to help further energize/transform their organizations: (for universities; Deans, VP for Research as well as CFO, VP Enrollment etc. and for corporations: C level leadership, VP Sales, VP/Director Research/Product Development etc.). Our market niche…where academic research meets corporate innovation is fascinating and constantly active.
We are contacted fairly regularly by prospective clients interested in learning if our firm can be helpful to them in support of their strategic hiring needs. Sometimes we are called well in advance of the hiring need and other times after a search has started and results are proving to be less than optimal.
In both situations we begin by listening because we need to understand the background about the search and to help determine for the client if our firm will be the right one for their need.
Some things we will need to know:
HSZ MEDIA published an article today relative to the search KULPER & COMPANY is conducting for a new Vice Provost for Research for Worcester Polytechnic Institute
To view the complete prospectus for the position:
We are currently working on several searches involving leaders for innovation, research and development. While it is still a buyer’s market for most hiring companies and universities, finding the right hired candidate for a key R&D and Innovation position is perhaps one of the greatest challenges. The hiring candidate needs to have the right blend of technical training and practical problem solving abilities as well as people management skills.
