 Reporting to the Indirect Materials and NPD Commodity Manager, Mary will select, audit, and manage suppliers, negotiate contracts, and create, plan, and execute a sourcing strategy through a Commodity Business Plan. She's pleased with her new position and with SET:

     "I happily accepted this job because of the compensation, career growth potential, the fact that it's a growing and diversified company, and the working environment. I overcame having limited experience with MRO items.

     "I really appreciated the ability to order reports and use them for contacting recruiters and responding to job openings."

Ronald L Now $300,000 EVP for International Career Services Firm, Based in Pacific Northwest  Upside Potential Is Great  Would Not Have Been Exposed to This Firm Had I Not Been Working With SET  High Praise for SET Marketing Director Win D



 Reporting to the Managing Director, Ron will be a member of the financial services and private equity group, calling on firms within both industry groups. He is enthusiastic about his prospects and gives SET a lot of credit for his success:

 The upside potential is great. I can work from this city, but have access to all 46 offices and international exposure. Not coming from the search industry was the biggest issue and age was actually an advantage since they want seasoned pro's. I call most of the shots for my work load and can also work from home when appropriate.

 I would not have been exposed to the firm had I not been working with SET. It was very valuable to match skill sets with various potential industries and professions.

 Win D was a hands-on asset. He coached me through the initial process and into the interview and negotiating process with the firm. He also provided a lot of encouragement as to transferring my skills to meet this new challenge. I would not have said yes without his blessing. The company knew of his involvement every step of the way.
