Solutions Driven expands into US market

20-year-old recruitment firm, Solutions Driven, is making strides across the pond. Continuing to execute their ongoing growth strategy, the company has made their first key appointment as part of their growth plans; Todd Maners, Executive Partner, who will be overseeing all US Operations.

North Carolina native Todd has an impressive background in recruitment and has spent 17 years in the US talent acquisition sphere. He brings a wealth of knowledge in organisational talent strategy, technology and executive-level hiring, and counts Colfax and SPX amongst his previous clients. His experience includes empowering organisations to transform themselves through the efficient and effective deployment of people, process and technology. Todd’s career history includes roles as both an internal human capital leader within Fortune 500 environments and as an external talent consultant, offering him a breadth of knowledge to draw from as both a practitioner and adviser.

Solutions Driven CEO, Gavin Speirs, is confident of the opportunities Todd’s role will bring. He says, “Bringing Todd on board is a massive achievement for us. Establishing a US base is something we’ve considered for a while due to 60% of our business being headquartered in the USA, and we now feel that the time is right to expand our offerings to new and existing clients. Todd has extensive experience in global executive hiring, and we believe his expertise will be a huge benefit to clients who will appreciate us having ‘boots on the ground’ and taking our US operations to the next level.”

Todd’s focus will initially be on building talent strategies for the US market, the expansion of Solution’s Driven’s US client base, and providing existing US clients with deeper insights on positioning themselves to win the war for talent.

On his new role, Todd says, “I’m extremely excited to join Solutions Driven; their defined processes, drive to innovate and wealth of in-house recruitment knowledge makes them the ideal talent partner for US businesses, and a strong contender in the US market. Their industry expertise and senior hiring capabilities combined with high standards and deep commitment to integrity made it an easy choice for me as it’s exactly the kind of dedicated talent partner US companies need right now.”

The current challenges facing the US talent market are well-known; US businesses are under extreme pressure to deliver faster and better results with each passing quarter. A critical requirement to being able to deliver on such demanding expectations is to have a well-defined approach to securing and optimising their internal talent capabilities. Executive and business-critical hiring needs to be performed strategically, factoring in all the variables of a pressured candidate marketplace.

Solutions Driven’s ethos has always been to engage passive, hard-to-find talent and support companies in making the right hire first time. Their unique 6S process provides an end-to-end talent strategy for each hire, as well as the 6F candidate approach which ensures the perfect fit is hired. With Todd’s appointment, US clients and candidates can access on-the-ground support and advice which is tailored to their market.
