ZRG Redefining Professional Managerial Search with Strengthened ProSearch Division

Rochelle Park, NJ, January 29, 2021 – ZRG Partners, the fastest-growing global executive search firm, has broadened their search solutions with new leadership and team members in their ProSearch Division. This move has reinforced and expanded their professional and managerial, individual sales contributor, interim, and RPO search solutions, since June 2020.

The revitalized ProSearch Division is currently at work in industries as varied as IT, Life Sciences, Industrial Services, Financial Services, Capital Goods and more. Over the past seven months, revenues in the division have increased more than 145% compared to the same period one year ago. Additionally, ProSearch has signed roughly 154% more business in the same period.

ZRG recognizes both the significant opportunity and need for recruitment solutions for positions that fall below the executive search level. Finding high-quality candidates for these critical roles can mean the difference between profit and loss. This is an area of a company’s talent pipeline that is perfect for bolstering diversity. ZRG brings decades of experience building diverse candidate slates into this practice. Further, these hires are the future leaders of their companies, often moving into the C-suite within five to 10 years.

As the effects of the pandemic crisis continue to be felt in markets across the country, ZRG remains committed to providing innovative and valuable solutions to their clients. Even in times of relative stability, the cost of leaving a critical role empty can be in the hundreds of thousands of dollars. The firm promises their bolstered suite of ProSearch solutions to be a better version of what’s offered in the market today.

ZRG’s ProSearch Managing Consultants possess a breadth of industry and professional management expertise. With the counsel of the firm’s senior-level, global consultants across functions and industries readily available, they are able to create a service offering like no other at this level. In addition, their access to an extensive talent pool and our digital hiring platform allows the ProSearch team to quickly identify and engage with highly qualified candidates for any professional management-level role.

As other firms grow their product offerings with robotics and AI, ZRG stands apart from the pack by focusing on passive candidates. These top performers aren’t actively searching for a new position on job boards or sending out resumes – they’re out there achieving results, and ZRG’s team of researchers and recruiters knows where to look to identify these best-fit hires.

While other firms fill a role and then walk away, ZRG truly builds a relationship as a partner to their client businesses. This includes getting to know the company and learning how to “sell” and market each opportunity they’re engaged to fill. By bolstering their professional and managerial, individual sales contributor, interim, and RPO search solutions, ZRG hopes to establish an even stronger relationship with each client, becoming their one-stop shop for all search solutions.

CEO Larry Hartmann says, “Since founding ZRG, we have striven to be that one provider offering solutions for Board roles, C-level roles, and the roles leading into those positions, whether they be interim, fractional, or full-time. We create customized solutions based on the unique needs of our clients, and the newly strengthened ProSearch Division will allow us to expand these solutions even further, leveraging our state-of-the-art tools and expertise to reinforce the ProSearch platform to help our clients build strong, collaborative teams.”
