One of the benefits of NPAworldwide membership is the ability to promote an international capability to your clients, serve your clients outside of their home markets, maximize your firm’s business opportunity by spending your time where the jobs are, and avoiding down economic situations in your home market. NPAworldwide defines “cross-border” splits as deals where the partners are operating in different countries. Here is a story about members that completed a cross-border split.

René Abgrall (NPA #7399) of René Abgrall Recruiting in Winnipeg, MB, Canada and Brett Walker (NPA #5081) of 733 Recruiting in Conway, AR, USA, recently shared a cross-border placement. Brett placed Rene's candidate, a Shipping Manager in the Fabricated Metal Products industry in the USA. ...And it's not their first cross-border placement together, either!
Rene said: "I first met Brett last June, as he had posted a few jobs in Matchmaker and I asked if I could help him. This lead to a few more searches and successful placements since then. Brett has been an awesome NPA partner to work with and I really appreciate supporting him on his recruiting needs."
Brett added: "Rene’ and I started working together after I posted some jobs on Matchmaker and he reached out to me asking if I would mind him helping me. I said of course! We have now made 6 splits together and I know we will make many more. Rene’ is in 'tune' with what type of candidates I need and does a great job helping me! I hope 2022 is as good to us as 2021 was and more!"
When you work together with an international partner, you can develop a relationship just like this - where it's not a one-time transaction, but cooperative teamwork that makes splits flow frequently!
