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.
Successful President Recruited
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 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.
