How Execu|Search Put Me To Work: Kimmy Warner

This is part of a series of testimonials from candidates who have successfully been placed by The Execu|Search Group. This testimonial comes from Kimmy Warner; you can find our past testimonials here.

When accounting professional Kimmy Warner decided to take the next step in her career, she had a strong idea of what she was looking for in a new position and employer. She turned to The Execu|Search Group for help and partnered with Kyle Wilkinson, a Senior Associate within The Execu|Search Group’s Accounting/Finance division, who is a CPA himself. Kimmy had a positive experience and was happy to speak with us about it:

kimmy warnerOn her background…

After graduating from Yeshiva University with a Bachelor’s of Science in Accounting, I enrolled in the school’s graduate program. After obtaining my Master’s, I joined the audit division of a Big 4 in January of 2014 where I focused on financial services.

On what she was looking for…

When I partnered with Kyle and The Execu|Search Group, I was looking for an opportunity that would allow me to transition from an audit position to a general accounting role. Company culture was equally important to me, so I wasn’t going to make a change unless I felt that the work environment was the right fit for me. This is something that Kyle understood from the get-go, and he worked with me to identify roles that met all of my needs.

On how TESG worked to meet her needs…

Kyle and his team continuously sought out my feedback before submitting me for opportunities. Taking my opinion into account, I never felt pushed to apply to or interview with companies that were clearly not aligned with my goals. After every interview, I always walked away thinking that these roles were tailor-made for me.

On preparing for the interview…

I knew that Kyle was the right partner for my search from the moment I began working with him. He always made himself available to discuss various opportunities, prepare me for upcoming interviews, and provide me with feedback. This armed me with the information I needed to improve my performance and put my best foot forward – ultimately, allowing me to land my current job. Kyle was truly instrumental to my success, and I would recommend him to anyone who is interested in making a career transition.

“Kimmy took the entire process seriously and always had a positive attitude,” says Kyle. “Because she was very honest and realistic with me about what she was looking for, we were able to build and maintain an open dialogue throughout the search. This enabled us to find her a position that was aligned with all of her goals. I know she will succeed in this new chapter of her career, and I’m excited to see where this takes her!”
