Industry veteran John Salvadore has launched a new business venture -- Global Recruiters Network (GRN) Coastal, Hopkinton, Mass. It’s a recruitment firm specializing in the distribution industry and focused on helping distributors and manufacturers in the electrical, automation, PVF and industrial trades find new talent. His company’s searches focus on management, field sales, marketing, channel, engineering and specialist roles. GRN Coastal is a part of Global Recruiters Network (GRN), Chicago, which has more than 200 offices worldwide and provides recruiting services in a wide variety of different industries. Salvadore’s GRN Coastal will focus on the distribution industry.
“Global Recruiters Network has provided tremendous support,” he said in a press release. “They have the technology infrastructure we needed and the networking amongst offices is tremendous. With our network and databases, I can readily access talent anywhere to supplement our personal contacts.
“I’ve dealt with recruiters in the industry for years. While they had extensive contact databases, rarely did they seem to truly understand what my search needs were. While they did searches ‘in the industry , they weren’t from the industry. I knew I could help hiring companies and candidates by bringing industry empathy to both. The response to date has been great.”
Salvadore has had executive posts with several manufacturers and distributors and organizations in the electrical market, including Eaton; All-Phase (now part of CED) Horizon Solutions; Affiliated Distributors, SourceAlliance.com and Vanguard National Alliance (VNA).
