Expanding beyond the company’s events and sponsorships, this venture will allow City & State’s loyal clients in advocacy, labor, health care, technology, education, non-profit and other sectors to access valuable services in attracting the top talent for New York City and New York State.
“In an extremely tight and competitive marketplace, corporations, organizations, associations and non-profits are looking for smart, effective ways to attract top talent, as evidenced by our always-full careers board,” said City & State President Tom Allon. “Now, we have added yet another service for our thousands of loyal clients with the ultimate goal of conducting executive searches that yield outstanding leaders for these organizations.”
“We are extremely proud and delighted to partner with City & State and expand our services to include City & State networks in New York City and around the state,” said Phillips Oppenheim CEO Jane Donaldson. “There are sectors related to politics and government – from technology to labor – that aren’t able to access search firms with the proper expertise for their searches. By partnering with City & State and its understanding of the many sectors that need government-savvy professionals, we can expand our experience and know-how to new clients.”
The new joint venture will focus on top leader searches including: CEO, Executive Director, Development Director, CFO, COO, Director/VP of Government Affairs, Director of External Affairs, and Marketing and Communications Directors. While City & State will serve as the marketing arm on the front end, Phillips Oppenheim will use its deep knowledge and database on the back-end to help new clients access top talent for these positions.
Phillips Oppenheim, which was founded in 1991, has conducted very high-profile searches in recent years including: the Museum Director of the Obama Presidential Center, the VP of Government Relations for Con Edison, the President and CEO of Community Healthcare Network, the CEO of the Children’s Aid Society, and the CEO of the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce. In addition, Phillips Oppenheim has conducted CEO searches for Lincoln Center, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Oxfam, the National Park Foundation and many others.
