NEW YORK, Oct. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- The Association of Executive Search Consultants (AESC) today announced that Florrie Wallace, Kincannon & Reed's Director of Research, received its prestigious Award for Excellence and Professionalism in Research.
The award was presented to Ms. Wallace at AESC's Researchers & Associates Summit in New York City by Peter Felix, President of AESC and Greg Duerksen, President of Kincannon & Reed. AESC is the worldwide professional association for retained executive search firms. Kincannon & Reed is a leading global executive search firm focused on the food, agribusiness, and life sciences sectors.
Ms. Wallace was chosen from among AESC's member companies' 1700 research employees as the executive search professional who demonstrates the highest standards of research, while representing herself and her firm in an ethical manner at all times. AESC's member firms employ more than 6,000 search professionals in 1,000 offices and in 74 countries.
"Since joining the firm in 2003, Ms. Wallace's leadership and example has transformed our research team to make it dramatically more efficient and effective," commented Mr. Duerksen. "She has both challenged and led us to use the newest technology tools available, while never forgetting that there is no substitute for insight and judgment when it comes to serving our clients' needs. Perhaps most importantly, she continually reinforces that in this day of powerful tools, we still need to simply pick up the phone, engage in conversations, and effectively tell the story of our clients' opportunities."
