R&D

Industry Overview:
 

Sophisticated innovation and breakthroughs add value to a company, enabling it to grow products, expand its portfolio and succeed long-term in the competitive marketplace. R&D requires smart spending of resources and an understanding of the market, so business, sales, marketing or design experience often help.

A passionate curiosity and an ability to develop new solutions will power R&D to undergo the many trials needed to make breakthroughs that will work in the market. The Three Es of R&D are Explore, Evaluate and Execute.

R&D often works with people from many other disciplines, so an ability to communicate and enjoy teamwork is important. Most of all, R&D calls for self-discipline and persistence to work within the bounds of cost, feasibility, government regulations and the customer’s desires. Ropella understands that R&D people often are motivated by more than money and titles, and we can find the right personnel for your company.

SOCMA recently worked with the ROPELLA Group to fill a Director, Membership position which was extremely positive!  We turned to ROPELLA because of their deep knowledge of sales type positions and broad contacts within the chemical industry.  Not only did ROPELLA quickly identify many candidates with the skill set required for this position, but they went to task and narrowed down close to a dozen highly qualified candidates within a week.  Robbie Ropella, President - Executive Search, was a pleasure to work with – she efficiently pre-screened the candidates and had them complete a questionnaire that helped us identify their core strengths.  From start to finish, we have hired what we feel is a superior candidate in less than six week’s time!
