September 17th, 2014

Welcome to the Thompson Search events newsletter. We bring you the networking news that will help you stay connected in San Diego. This bi weekly newsletter is coming to you this time via a new e-publishing tool, since our list now is distributed as a free service to the San Diego county community, to over 7000 recipients! We are very happy to be of service and trust that you will think of us when you have needs for talent in your recruiting efforts throughout the year!

We are wishing everyone a happy and prosperous Fall! We have definitely heated up on our searches since mid-summer and are quite busy with client company searches, both on the perm and the interim sides. Hopefully that bodes well for the economy! What a change 2013, and now 2014, have been from 2010, 2011 and 2012! Hope you are all experiencing the same increases and optimism! If you are looking for interim work or looking to add an individual to supplement your team, to cover employee leaves, excess work load or other projects, you can reach Tom at 858-452-6200 X116 or email him at tom@thompsoninterim.com. As always, when you are looking for the right match for your “permanent” professional team in accounting/finance, please contact Judy at 858-452-1200 X113 or email her at judy@thompsonsearch.com.

As San Diego’s trusted advisor for recruiting finance and accounting professionals for the county’s leading companies, our three firms that make up Thompson Search can help you to anticipate change and identify individuals with the right skills, experience and expertise to facilitate and manage those changes. From fulfilling your full time or part time finance and accounting outsourcing needs with Thompson Interim, to conducting searches for positions on a permanent contingency basis with Thompson Financial Search, to conducting retained searches with BrownThompson Executive Search, we are here to provide you the perfect match every time. Call us to learn more about our new approach to help you with all of your talent needs. We are also here to support you or a colleague in transition through our monthly “Accountants in Transition”, as well as our monthly “Executives in Transition” meetings. Call us for more information.

Visit http://www.thompsonsearch.com/newsletter/sdevents.htm for updated event information. If you have questions, please email newsletter@thompsonsearch.com. Look for our next list on Wednesday, October 1st, 2014.

Regards,

Judy Thompson
