RETURN ON LEADERSHIP
It was a pleasure to work with Ray & Berndtson. We had a couple of very senior positions to be filled, and we achieved a shortlist of good leaders in a short period of time. In addition, the discussions we had to convert the positions along with the options generated made the executive search and onboarding much easier. Ray & Berndtson's personal attention and dedication towards the assignment is greatly appreciated.

Another brave new world!
From entrepreneur to global company executive, all believe their organization has to be on the web. For their enterprises to succeed, they must be part of the e-business charge--selling products, marketing services, creating value chains and alliances with suppliers and other constituencies, sharing or brokering knowledge, or redesigning internal processes to save time and money. Projections about utilization and the Internet's effects on business are phenomenal. e-business is the salvation for any company -- fledgling, failing, or fantastic.
Unfortunately, after the initial venture into e-business, many are disappointed. Results are average at best. The investment was significant; the return, minimal. E-business is yet another business tool. How it is used and its success depends on executive talent. Companies reaping rewards from e-business invest in leadership who understand its ongoing, evolving potential; inspire and guide a creative, aggressive team; and implement perpetual change in a manner consistent with culture and corporate goals.
