Tom Wallace is partner at Kopplin, Kuebler and Wallace. He’s an expert in placing top executives in fine country clubs. In this episode we chat about the expectations boards have of their next GM/COO as well as what managers are looking to get out of their next job.
We discuss why cultural fits are so important to matching the right candidate with the right club.
