Filcro Media Staffing’s Recruitment Solution

Filcro Media Staffing proceeded to identify senior most real estate executives with current global management responsibilities of real estate portfolios equal to or greater in scope .  A prerequisite was the governance of real estate portfolios through “internal resources” that met or exceeded the worth of the firm’s global holdings. The capacity to identify an executive who could maintain greater controls and optimize return by brining in-house what was currently out-sourced was essential.  This President would have to report into one of the most dynamic media chairman in the world.  The succession plan required an executive capable of managing a substantial portfolio with the complete approval of a demanding board of directors.

Filcro Media Staffing first scrutinized real estate executives from the media and entertainment sectors in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Pennsylvania  and Atlanta.  Subsequently, Tony Filson as the Officer in Charge of the search was not satisfied with the initial universe and  conferred  with the current president of global real estate  in order to identify a candidate who met all the prerequisites established by the board and recruit outside of the media and telecommunications industries.   Gaining consensus of the executive search committee, Filcro Media Staffing proceeded to aggressively look at other sectors with substantial global real estate holdings.

Tony Filson as Officer in Charge of Search initiated greater scrutiny of multi conglomerates in the financial and industrial sectors and this proved to exceed the executive search committee's expectations.

A Managing Director of a diversified multinational financial institution based outside of a major geographic market was ultimately identified, hired and unanimously approved by the board.

The executive transitioned successfully and became acclimated in a brief period of time

The firm’s succession plan was successful and the executive has exceeded the board of director's and the Chairman's expectations from a management and asset optimization perspective. He has proven to be a vital asset to a global media and entertainment conglomerate with substantial real estate holdings and leasing transactions

Filcro Media Staffing New York is Retained

The Filcro Media Staffing Officer in Charge of Search Tony Filson was asked to commence a U.S. North East search and establish guidelines to assure the new Senior Director could implement proper acquisition, management, lease negotiations and disposition of real estate holdings. It was the opinion of Filcro Media Staffing from the onset that a suitable universe of candidates could be identified in the New York City and surrounding markets.

Filcro Media Staffing was provided with confidential succession plans for the real estate division and played a vital role in identifying a distinct group of proper real estate executives. Clear definitions were established with the Vice President of Corporate Real Estate to assure that the new Senior Director would be capable of defined growth within a two to three year window. Filcro Media Staffing already had a cultural understanding of the firm through prior identification and understood the issues of identifying a new Senior Director that could be perceived as a “parity issue” with regard to other Directors in the same department.

Human resources gave guidance and ultimately advocated a “grade” change to justify compensation that was more market driven to facilitate attraction.

The diversity of this particular Media and Entertainment Conglomerate's lines of businesses and the diversity and vastness of the real estate holdings would pose a challenge for any competent corporate real estate executive. Motion Picture Studios, Office Buildings, Raw Land, Industrial and Sophisticated Communications Facilities would be prime examples of the types of transactions this person would be in charge of from a management perspective.

Establishing an initial universe of qualified real estate executives was done with little or no latitude expressed in the hard skill set and experience areas. The clearly defined skills allowed no room for recruitment latitude from a tactical or strategic perspective. The fact that Filcro Media Staffing reported directly to the hiring manager who was also the Vice President of Real Estate offered many advantages as the VP RE was clearly identifying a possible heir apparent.

The Challenges Facing the Senior Director of Real Estate (SDRE)

  • Locating appropriate real estate within the established corporate framework
  • In conjunction with the Legal Department, negotiating all provisions contained in a lease , acquisition or divestiture document
  • Negotiating competitive business terms, landlord services, leasehold improvements, special requirements relevant to the media and entertainment industries
  • Reviewing operating expense statements, ensuring compliance with lease obligations, analyzing costs and calculations, assisting global business managers with budgets and rent increases
  • Maintaining the accuracy of the inventory databases, generating management reports, preparing lease abstracts
  • Negotiating lease cancellations, subleases and sales contracts for idle assets and vacant properties
  • Change Management
  • Training
  • Continuity Across Varied Lines of Business
  • Budget Controls and Reporting
  • Best Practices

Filcro Media Staffing’s Recruitment Solution

Filcro Media Staffing proceeded to Identify the "best in industry" real estate executives who had performed similar functions in and out of the media and entertainment industry. Due to the uniqueness of the size and diversity of the real estate holdings, an executive who was accustomed to a minimum of 50 to 100 transactions per year was essential. This posed serious constraints on the initial universe of qualified candidate and ultimately led to identification form an “ideal skill experience environment” as opposed to “ideal industry”.

An executive capable of focusing on tactical and strategic issues based on market driven conditions dictated a national and global acumen with vendors, contractors, architects, builders, brokers and developers. With such diverse contacts and experience in varied lines of business required there needed to be clear success in the past dealing with and maintaining solid relationships across all these areas of responsibility.

The VP of RE was receptive to varied industries as long as all the soft and hard skills were proven and gave Filcro Media Staffing complete autonomy during the search process to determine the proper executives to be tiered.
