Elliott Duda will take over the reigns to lead the North American Retail Automotive Practice for Tier One Executive Search, according to Senior Partner, Mark Thibodeau. Thibodeau also said: "Elliott has done such a great job for us on the manufacturing side and this is a natural step for him". The Detroit based firm has focused on the Automotive and Manufacturing sectors for 20 years, and in recent years has pushed to grow the dealership/retail side of the business to become over 30% of the overall revenues. Duda says that the practice focuses on helping large dealership groups and independent owners solve critical talent gap problems that are a result of turnover, natural attrition, succession issues, or underperforming teams or team members. Specifically, the retail practice seeks out, attracts, and secures talent at the dealership group corporate level and store level within General Management, Sales, and Fixed Operations. "It's an exciting practice area focused on the niche area of selling vehicles and related aftermarket and replacement parts, but with a lot of variety. In any given week, we might be in the middle of searching for a CFO or COO for a 100 store dealer group, and in the middle of searches for a store General Manager, Pre-owned Manager, Service Manager, and Sales professional", Duda says.
Thibodeau says that while the manufacturing side of the business is a global practice, the retail practice remains largely focused on the USA and Canada.
Today People Need People becomes Higher Growth Search, a staffing and HR services firm for the cannabis industry.
For years, cannabis-based businesses comprised a small and unregulated industry, and there was therefore little need for attention to compliance and employment regulations. However, with the legalization of cannabis came both a flood of new talent into and an increased spotlight on the industry, and many cannabis businesses need outside guidance to keep up with these new demands.
People Need People was founded in 2017 in Oakland, CA by Stacy Bryant, an industry veteran who began her expansive career in the industry at the age of 16. People Need People was built as a boutique staffing company geared towards the cannabis industry, and it expanded across Northern California, maintaining relationships with some of today’s most well-known brands.
“I am excited to be joining Higher Growth Search at such a critical time for the cannabis industry,” remarked Bryant, managing director of Higher Growth Search. “Legalization has created new challenges for business owners, who now cannot rely solely on their expertise with cannabis, but must also quickly come to understand employment law and implement new policies to remain in compliance. It’s clear that not only does the cannabis industry ‘Need People,’ but it also needs to properly hire, manage, and retain them so that their businesses can grow.”
Higher Growth Search’s vision is to help legitimize the cannabis industry by giving businesses resources to manage and care for their employees, institute and maintain safe workplaces, and find and retain the right talent for each role and company.
“By staffing our company with not only experts from the cannabis space, but also from the staffing and human resources management side,” said CEO Joe Madigan, “we’ve positioned Higher Growth Search to become a strong business partner who understands both where cannabis companies are coming from and how to get them where they want to go.”
Drawing from experience in helping businesses of all sizes, from startups to large enterprises and across nearly every industry represented in California for the last 50 years, Higher Growth Search brings a wealth of knowledge and support to the cannabis industry. Higher Growth Search also has deep knowledge of the local job markets and a wide network of highly talented workers, along with experience staffing for the wine, beer and spirit fields and other highly regulated industries, making this new company a strong presence as it enters the cannabis industry.
