How to Find the Right SVP of Communications

Posted on 3 July, 2015 at 0:40

Most companies have a list of required credentials that must be met when looking for the best SVP of Communications to represent your company. The list includes black and white information like education, years of experience, and possibly past affiiation with an agency. This list is the easy part of fulfillment for your search.

The difficult part of finding the best candidate involves the intangibles. Does this person have the personality that blends with the rest of the staff? For your organization, past or present political ties may increase or decrease the ability of the candidate to work well. Would this candidate adjust to your casual dress code or are suit and tie their standard dress?

What is the best way to find the right person?

While databases can help to find the person who fits the list of required credentials, the most efficient way to find both is to work with someone who talks to, researches, and keys in on your intangibles. Find the Search Firm who works with you to develop both lists and then has the experience to blend both and find the best candidates.
