ACS 2018

Ropella Update: Last week, Jeff Bennett (VP Client Partnership Development; pictured at bottom) and Christian Hogue (Manager CPD; pictured in top right) traveled to Indianapolis, IN, for the 2018 American Coatings Show & Conference (ACS).

Jeff and Christian met with leaders across the industry, from small niche manufacturers to household names, though we noted that we were meeting with many more small-company executives than in years past. One Director of R&D from a concrete-color producer mentioned that there were more entrepreneurs at the show than ever before.

Even more telling, many of the executives we spoke to described record-breaking growth – divisional year-over-year growth of 10 to 20%. This rapid expansion is a great opportunity to build your relationship with an executive search partner like Ropella – and even consider Recruitment Process Outsourcing. By bringing in hiring experts to focus on building your team, you free yourself up to focus on higher-level strategic planning to sustain the growth you’re currently experiencing.
