Executive Search can be highly challenging in the Chemical Consumer Products, and Technology industries.
You're not just looking for a Senior Level Executive. For example, you may be looking for a person with prior surfactants product development expertise, who's also had high-level business development experience in the European Consumer markets. Someone who is now at the general management level, with $250 million+ company, with P&L and 15 years of leadership experience. By the way, the ideal candidate also needs to be working for a competitor of yours who also specifically serves dish detergent manufacturers. A very specific set of skills indeed! These are the types of needles in a haystack searches we're regularly retained for.
We know how frustrating it can be to try to fill that highly specialized position that seems almost unfillable. We excel at finding the needle in the haystack, anywhere across the globe.

It was so wonderful to speak with you today. I admire and appreciate how hard you work to make a difference and how kind and understanding you are. Sometimes it is possible to know someone's spirit just by communicating with them; today was one of those times for me, hopefully you got a sense of who I am also my sincerest and best wishes to you.
I was truly impressed with your professionalism and performance ...I especially appreciated your follow-up and direct approach. I realize that in your business the client companies are very important, yet you were always very straight forward with me as the candidate and made me feel that my needs were important as well. You also provided excellent advice, which I know helped me make the best impression..

It was great working with Patrick Ropella because he provided great suggestions to improve my preparation for interviewing and marketability. He also provided a great interface to the client that kept me fully up to date regarding the status of my candidacy for the position. I would strongly recommend him to my colleagues who are considering a career change.

I appreciate the patience you and your staff demonstrated during the process of finding a new position for me. Also, I put much of your advice into practice during the interview and negotiation process with great success. Obviously, I am extremely happy with the outcome!
Business Development ManagerBASF
I have been in the chemical industry in leadership positions with BASF and Silberline Manufacturing for 25 years. Through this period and during my transition period I have dealt extensively with retained search professionals. You clearly operate at a much higher standard than the norm in the industry and I wanted to point that out to you. This comes through in several areas: follow up skills, punctual phone contact, personable nature and an optimistic perspective that drives you to make the extra effort to make things work for both the client and the candidate. Life is a constant negotiation and you seem to see this and make it a pleasant process.!
VP/General Manager of North American RecyclingExide Technologies
My greatest thanks to the Ropella Team that worked with me in securing my new position. I am one of those very seasoned veterans having worked a long career with one company, but not really ready to move into retirement. Ropella very professionally arranged each step in the process. The advice from Patrick on negotiations and interfacing with the client company was invaluable and resulted in a very satisfying union between my skill set and an international company's needs, I can't thank Ropella enough, and would recommend their services to career seekers of any age and background. Thanks very much!

I appreciated your effective, fast-paced assistance with my recent search. Ropella's targeted Skills Survey quickly cuts to the heart of a candidate's value to the hiring organization. The Ropella process kept both parties focused on a fact, skills, and achievement-based hiring process. I found your timely advice throughout the search process invaluable to my success. The entire process took eight days from first contact to acceptance of the job!
