Michael Yahkind (NPA #4038) of Technical Paradigm LLC in Chicago, IL, USA has made the firm’s first split placement with Mark Dinowitz (NPA #1261) of The Edgewater Group, LLC in Jersey City, NJ, USA.

Mark placed Michael’s candidate, a Software Sales Engineer in the Software Industry in the United States.

Mark explains how the deal came about: "Michael, as a new member of NPA, reached out to me via email in June inquiring about a Junior Sales position I had posted on Matchmaker. We exchanged a few emails about the position, and he started to send me some candidates for it. This all culminated in one of his candidates receiving and accepting an offer for the position about 1 month later!"

Michael said he reached out to Mark to because he posted a technology sales role in which Michael thought he had a candidate on his bench for.

"As a new member Mark was very good at showing me how to do the process correctly and kept me in the loop the whole time!" Michael said. "Thus, I am still working on other roles for Mark in which we are having different interviews- because he has great relationships with his clients and keeps great communication with me during the entire process. Mark does a great job making new members like myself feel welcome to NPA and shows how great NPA is at forming new mutually beneficial relationships."

Great job being proactive and reaching out, Michael! And great work communicating and showing Michael the ropes, Mark! Here's to many more splits together!
