Did you know Lead5 has a unique company list feature that you will not find online or with any other database? For these lists, Lead5 focuses on US based companies that are actively recruiting executive level talent because these are the companies that are seeking the men and women who comprise the Lead5 member base.
As a busy executive, you probably don’t realize how many companies in your area are seeking executive-level professionals. That’s because every area has a handful of well-known companies, but there are many high-growth and successful companies that often fall under the radar. Additionally, most executive jobs are hidden or unlisted. At Lead5, we strive to provide you with company lists that give you the full picture of the companies hiring executives in your particular function and region. This empowers your ability to conduct proactive outreach, putting you in the driver seat of your next career move.
Here’s an example of how you can use Lead5’s company lists:
Let’s say you are a healthcare-focused CFO who wants to remain in Atlanta. There are 27 companies in the Lead5 database when you filter for region ‘Atlanta’ and select industry ‘Healthcare Services + HealthTech’ that are private equity backed, and another 17 that are privately held with no institutional backing. Do research and become familiar with those companies. Learn about the cultures of those companies through networking. If you have been in the same market for some time, you will be amazed at how quickly you can connect with someone who knows the inside story or culture of the company.
Lead5 also shows you that 6 private equity deals have taken place in the last 12 months in the Atlanta market in Healthcare Services + HealthTech. Did you know that when a PE firm acquires a majority stake in a new company, that 70% of the time they replace the CFO within 12 months of the deal? PE deals are important hiring indicators for most C-level functions.
What about a newly appointed CEO? New CEOs will likely restructure their leadership team within the first 12 months on the job. With Lead5 you can track and monitor new CEO appointments for companies in your industry and region. Lead5 has recommendations for how to approach a new CEO directly or through networking contacts. Timing is key and Lead5 gives you an edge for how and when to make these connections.
