Impact Beyond People
The competitive advantage to Smooch’s framework is that she has spent years cultivating relationships with the top 20% of Investor Relations Offers and Chief Communications Officers worldwide. As a client, you will have access to the benefits of this network, her highly credible relationships with these professionals, and her savvy, which ensures quality brand stewardship for management and the Board with all internal and external stakeholders – that translates into success.
That said, Smooch is interested in making a lasting impact beyond simply filling an executive seat. She believes that fostering an honest and transparent relationship with the executive teams of her client organizations yields more robust, long-term value than a one-time transaction. This allows her to act as a valuable thought partner to the executive team in shaping business solutions and ultimately ensuring the longevity and success of the company.
Diversity and Cultural Alignment
Diversity today extends beyond the traditional and historic norm of ethnicity and gender; it embodies a wide array of life and career experiences, religious beliefs and sexual orientation, as well as intellectual curiosity, individual courage, and breadth of intellectual depth. Smooch and her team serve as organizational catalysts to help teams achieve the level of diversity necessary to both succeed and reflect the diverse world in which we operate.
Smooch’s perceptive, meticulous approach allows her to deeply understand the nature of each candidate and each executive team to ensure complete alignment between both. Smooch’s ability to create a balance across outside thinking, differing backgrounds, and unusual mindsets helps to pivot management teams’ thinking toward more innovative talent solutions. This process results in candidates being able to immediately create value and become trusted subject matter experts in a timely and effective manner rather than languishing as a new recruit.
“Smooch is regarded as the premier executive recruiter in the Investor Relations field. Throughout the past two decades Smooch has completed more than 300 senior-level mandates in this strategic IR functional area. Her clients have ranged from startups to Pre-IPO high-growth firms to Fortune 500 market leaders.”
