NEW YORK, June 26, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Jamesbeck Global Partners, a leading executive search firm focused on the investment management industry, today announced an exclusive partnership with Megan Staczek, who brings nearly 25 years of experience as a leadership trainer, organization development consultant and executive coach. Staczek's expertise will enhance Jamesbeck's current offerings to clients, further bolstering Jamesbeck's growing role as a beginning-to-end partner in human capital solutions.
Staczek will join the Jamesbeck team to focus on helping selected candidates more seamlessly integrate into the cultures of the organizations they join in order to achieve both immediate and long-term success in their new roles. She will work with newly placed senior executives as well as their teams to create a strong support system, setting up those hires to thrive.
"This partnership with Megan is a game changer for our firm and will enable us to better serve our clients by offering complementary counsel to ensure positive outcomes," said Melissa Norris, Founding Partner of Jamesbeck. "Over the past several years, we have had the opportunity to get to know Megan and she is a fantastic cultural fit, sharing our dedication to our clients' success. We welcome her to Jamesbeck and look forward to her contributions to the firm."
The investment management industry continues to evolve and bring new opportunities and challenges for candidates and hiring managers alike, which has created a stronger need for executive coaching to create and maintain a new vision for a changing environment. Several macro, secular factors impacting this demand include the ability to prioritize goals and tasks in an increasingly fast-paced world with greater information flow, increasing use of technology in portfolio management and heightened demand for diversity in senior leadership. At the same time, according to [Leadership IQ], nearly 50% of new leadership hires fail to meet expectations and bring added value to the business within the first 18 months.
As executive search firms to take on larger roles as advisors and coaches, it is essential that their search partners be adept from the planning stages of a search to the smooth transition of new hires. Jamesbeck is committed to providing more value and support for their clients, and this partnership with Staczek will expand the firm's capabilities to ensure the best outcomes over the long-term.
Staczek has worked in management development, executive coaching and leadership transitions for nearly 25 years, beginning in-house at financial firms including Allfirst Bank and T. Rowe Price. In 2004, she founded an executive coaching company, now Capacity Group, to enable the growth and development of leaders and teams.
"Naturally, identifying and successfully transitioning new leadership members is a huge concern for corporate hirers and provides opportunities for smart executive recruiting firms," said Staczek. "Jamesbeck has a strong brand in the market and is well received by some of the most successful investment managers in the market."
