A note from Barbara Limmer, Kevin’s SC&C Campaign Director. “I’m happy to announce that after juggling 3 offers, Kevin has accepted his dream position as VP of Product Development at XXXX, a technology company.

Kevin began with us at the end of March 2010 as a Technical Program Manager who had been working for the past few years as a contractor at Microsoft. Prior to that, he spent 10 years with Yahoo, including having done a European assignment. He had “grown up” in the field of software engineering and progressed to a … Read More

I’m pleased to announce that Brian has accepted the position of National Sales Director for XXXX in SC. He was brought to SC&C by Executive Consultant, Dennis Johnston. Brian came to us as an employed Sales Leader who felt his career growth was limited at his current company because of existing turmoil there.

Ramsey Penegar put together superb marketing materials for him, and together we worked on his interview skills, including putting together a PowerPoint presentation he gave to an executive panel … Read More

It is my pleasure to announce that Cindy has accepted the position of Operations Manager of Emerging & Traditional Payment Channels for XXXX, a consumer financial services company. When Cindy started she was open to industries outside of financial services, but was not opposed to staying in the sector for the right opportunity.

The position originated from a recruiter call. We used the position as the basis for our entire interview training which helped make it a very real scenario vs a general role play. Once the offer was extended, … Read More
Drew has accepted the position as CIO for XXXX. As CIO, Drew will be in an expanded role from the predecessor as he will not only lead IT operations, but will also serve as a strategic business partner in developing the growth of XXXX’s multiple locations and online presence.

It is my pleasure to announce that Darrin has accepted the position of General Manager for XXXX. When Darrin came to us he was doing consulting work with no solid opportunities for employment. He was most concerned about extensive travel, and had been doing a job search for another direction since September of 2014. After becoming an SC&C client, it was not long before he overcame not having sought employment and transitioning into the methodology and process that led to his new role.
Darrin’s new position transpired from networking. He had known a current XXXX District Manager for a long time, from Darrin’s prior work with that company. When this position became available, Darrin was “the guy to beat” for … Read More

Good morning, everyone. My client, John, has accepted a new role as an Account Manager with XXXX. John came to us as a harried employee working as a Business Manager for a large religious organization. He felt that the organization was too invasive in his personal life. He was also on-call all the time for any church functions (wedding, funerals, church events, etc.) and that had infringed on his last relationship.
His new role allows him more work-life balance. He now has the flexibility to work from home and he is currently being groomed to accept a higher role. He is very pleased that he had recently moved to a new condo and it so happens that he is only … Read More
Rupa came to from India where she had been working as an IT Director at a major financial organization. She felt this was a dead-end for her as there was no room for promotion opportunities.
After we completed her documents and she went through her SC&C Phoenix Experience, she felt more comfortable with interviewing and presenting all her successes and achievements. She completed a series of interviews with a major restaurant company that has multiple franchises and hundreds of locations throughout U.S.-wide for a lead IT role, however, that would have meant a major move, which she wasn’t particularly interested in doing.
Then she did a face-to-face interview with XXXX, one of America’s largest online companies, for a Senior Technical … Read More
