The job requires a great grasp of “the big picture,” plus in-depth understanding of business fundamentals and strategizing for the benefit of both customer and company. The demands in this area are especially high, so the best candidate must possess education, experience, a broad background, decision-making skills and the ability to lead. At this level, decisions must be made in a timely manner, with an eye on return on investment; this leadership sets the tone for the entire company.
Communication skills can’t be overlooked; in today’s global economy, a leader must constantly be talking about the company’s vision, listening to customers and employees, explaining policies and guiding subordinates in ways to raise profits and reduce costs. Technical and functional expertise deserve great weight, as does background in a relevant field – law, finance etc.
The executive level manager doesn’t shy away from problems; he tackles them, develops solutions and carries them out. With our deep experience in management fields, Ropella can identify the best candidates for executive level management.

Ropella is probably one of the best vendor partners that I have ever worked with - just in terms of the quality of search that was done. It was fun, thorough and overall a great experience.
