Dana Kowen (NPA #6071) of Dana Kowen Associates LLC in Rocklin, CA, USA, has made the firm’s first split placement with Radhakrishna P (#8385) of Roljobs Technology Services Pvt Ltd in Bangalore, India.

Dana placed Radhakrishna’s candidate, a Plant Co-Manufacturing (Operations) Manager in the Food Production Industry in the USA.

Dana explains how the deal came about: “One of our longstanding clients reached out to us with a very challenging search. The situation had become urgent because they had 5 similar open positions, which their internal team had not been able to fill. Of course, when client reached out we agreed to help, but internally, we had our own concerns about meeting the challenge due to lack of bandwidth with our current searches, plus these 5 new searches.

"Being new to NPA, we reached out to Marcia who gave us direction on how to make effective use of the position postings, and how to identify NPA partners who might help," Dana said. "We followed her guidance. In this particular instance, it was Radhakrishna (RK) of Roljobs who came to our assistance after reviewing our job posting.

Dana said RK sent well-qualified candidates with great write-ups, and, after a short discussion and with a better understanding of exactly what was needed, he sent the perfect candidate, who was placed.

"Through prompt responses and efficient communication, Dana paved the path for this candidate to reach the final round of interview where he was offered for this position," Radhakrishna said.

"It’s been a pleasure partnering with RK and his team," Dana said. "They are highly responsive and provide quality candidates with great write ups."

"We felt particularly good about this placement," Dana said. "After being a member of NPA for a short while, we were able to achieve two important goals: First, we were able to meet the needs of a good client, and second, we were able to validate our decision to partner with NPA."

That's what this network is all about! Working together with your trading partners to help keep your clients happy! Great job, Dana and RK!
