SGA Talent Acknowledges The Exceptional Women Leaders Who Lead The Top Diversified Companies

Every month SGA Talent releases studies and reports which are part of assignments the team has worked on in the past. This month we are preparing to release “Who’s Who Among The Top Diversified Companies.”

Retained by a well renowned global diversified organization, our team was tasked with conducting a succession planning & diversity project. Our mission was to identify leadership teams and build organization charts three levels down from each leader. Once this was completed and shared with our client, our team began gathering profiles, conducting talent comparisons and obtaining contact details of those professionals who made the list. Now in review by our client, we have been asked to begin engaging and building talent communities with the intent to fill future vacancies. With a target list of over 200 organizations, we are sharing with our readers, the companies who were part of Venture Radar‘s top list of diversified companies, focusing solely on the United States.

As we prepare for this month’s release, I wanted to first share and congratulate the outstanding women leaders from the top diversified companies listed below. Congrats to all who made the list!

SGA Talent appoints New Management Team

Sheila Greco, Chief Executive Officer, SGA Talent appoints a new senior management team to lead the company through the successful conclusion of its transformation process.  

Amsterdam, New York, July 23, 2019— Sheila Greco, Founder of the global recruitment and research firm SGA Talent is proud to appoint SGA Talent’s senior management team to lead the company through the successful conclusion of its transformation process.  Upon the project’s conclusion, the new senior management team will also lead the company as a fully integrated recruiting solutions provider, maximizing the strength of the firm’s internal research team.

Ms. Greco says: “I am extremely pleased to make this announcement, and I’m confident that the new management team has the talent, experience, and expertise not only to deal effectively with the complex challenges we face today, but also to build a successful future for the company.”

Joseph Morse has been appointed President.   After over 24 years with the company, Joe has both the experience and vision needed to transform SGA Talent into a high-performing, industry-leading full-service recruiting company.   “As a leader and active participant in the day-to day operations of the company,” Ms. Greco continued, “I expect Joe to make an easy transition into this new role.”

Anthony Carbone has been appointed Partner, and, along with Mr. Morse, he will be tasked with managing and growing the firm by building the company’s compelling suite of recruiting and talent intelligence solutions. Having served the company for over 23 years, Sheila is confident that Tony will lead the team to be the best-in-class recruiting solutions provider in the industry.

Tere Masters has been appointed Partner of Corporate Development and Operations.  She will lead SGA Talent’s efforts to explore expansion and growth opportunities.  “Tere has been at my side for 22 years, supporting me in working through the company’s evolution, so this new role is a perfect fit for her,”stated Ms. Greco.

Mary Maines has been appointed Partner responsible for leading the company’s philanthropic activities and community involvement. Mary has had a successful journey with the company, working in research, sales and recruiting. Her commitment to excellence and her diverse background will round out the team. 

Steve Way has been promoted to Managing Director of Research.  For close to two decades his dedication, commitment, and hard work has contributed to the team’s overall success. Looking ahead, Steve’s continued enthusiasm and passion for accomplishment will undoubtedly be part of the company’s continued growth.

“The new leadership team brings a unique mix of fresh ideas and knowledge for the successful launch of the newly reorganized company,” said Ms. Greco. “The team’s experience, together with their many notable accomplishments, ensures SGA Talent is able to execute the final stages of the restructuring process and build value for all stakeholders going forward.”

Ms. Greco, who will continue as the Chief Executive Officer, is excited about these new appointments.  “It means a great deal to me to have the support of this management team to take us into the next chapter of the company.  Without our great team, excellent clients, mentors, friends, and family we would not be where we are today.  This new governing body will reflect the strategic importance of the company’s interaction with our team, clients, and its transformation ambition.

An Engaged Candidate Pipeline Is Powerful


Employing a recruiting strategy around candidate pipelining offers many advantages; it shortens the time to hire, offers the opportunity to have access to engaged, qualified, skilled candidates and the fact that you are connected with potential candidates who are “passive” yet have an interest in making the “right move” when presented with one. This engaged and vetted professional network without a doubt is designed to be a recruiter’s robust “rolodex” –  and talent pool. This approach to recruiting is powerful and is an alternative to the standard recruiting techniques used to respond to filling a role or under the traditional “rushed sourcing model.

The Advantages of Candidate Pipelining

Shortens The-Time-To Hire

Candidate Pipelining is a proactive recruitment strategy, meant to speed up the recruiting and hiring process. This recruiting methodology simply includes identifying, vetting, engaging and staying engaged with passive candidates you chose to stay connected with. Oftentimes when critical positions become vacated or must be filled with exceptional talent immediately, having an engaged qualified candidate pipeline acts as a powerful recruiting resource and tool. The pipeline approach is known to speed up the hiring process simply by providing the recruiter a pool of pre-qualified candidates. This select group of talent has been vetted so that the recruiter just needs to connect to discuss the opportunity.

Access To Engaged, Qualified and Skilled Candidates

A great advantage of having a pre-qualified candidate pipeline/network is that the relationship has been made and the network of potential candidates is in motion. Also, for a recruiter, it is about developing trusted relationships that create networks of potential higher-performing future hires that are right for the client and the professional, based upon what you know. Since most candidate pipelines are candidate-centric, meaning that it focuses on identifying and meeting candidate needs, I recommend taking the time to really engage, listen, as well as answer questions so that you truly understand the musts, wants as well as the needs of each candidate. This way when an opportunity arises, the conversation with the candidate is easy as well as positive.

Ability To Connect With Passive Candidates You Know

Recruiting is all about who you know and who you want to know that would be good for one of your clients. By using the candidate pipeline approach to recruiting it allows recruiters to identify and connect with strong potential candidates while staying connected overtime, as well as before the right opportunity arises. The whole idea is for the recruiter to get to know each “passive candidate” and they get to know the recruiter. This deliberate approach to recruiting is a great way to recruit these types of professionals who are not actively looking, but are top performers who are highly sought after.

How To Build A Candidate Pipeline

For starters, in order to build a candidate pipeline or network for a particular role or just to build a network of talent, it’s recommended to start by identifying, tracking and connecting with who you believe are strong candidates, or those you have connected with before on previous searches/roles. If you have an applicant tracking system you may use it, but even a simple spreadsheet will do. Just be sure to capture all the important data that is relevant to the professional – their name, contact information, Link to biography, LinkedIn profile or even better a resume. The whole idea is to gather as much information as you can from the first day you connect and to continue adding more information with each conversation, all of which is used for future reference. The overall goal is to create a talent pool of potential candidates who trust you and are open to discussing opportunities that may be right for them as they arise.

Competitive Advantages To Candidate Pipelining

For companies, candidate pipelining allows hiring managers to make informed decisions from a pool of qualified candidates backed with information. This process also speeds up the hiring process because the recruiter has access to top performers who have been vetted and ready to listen. Another big advantage is that this method builds strong relationships with top performers, the competition may or may not have access to with the key words being, “strong relationships”. As for the recruiter, it provides a resource second to none, making you a known recruiter who can fill the pipeline quicker with solid candidates you know and with professionals who trust you.

As a firm believer in candidate pipelining I have experienced and continue to experience along with our clients the many advantages this process provides. Candidate pipelining is powerful for sure. We have been wildly successful working along side a major retailer, a financial services company, an insurance company, a medical device company and a professional services who continue to use this type of recruiting strategy.

If you are looking to brainstorm, or ask me how we continue to work with our clients, using this strategy, I welcome the call. Thanks for reading!

Happy Hunting!
