Newly-Landed Position + Company: Chief Development Office, Empire Portfolio Group/Orange Theory Fitness
Prior to landing your new position, were you currently working or in transition? I was in transition.
How did you get connected to the company where you landed your new role? I sent “reconnect” emails to recruiters I had relationships with in the past. One happened to be an investor in this company and knew they were looking to grow their leadership team.
What allowed you to stand out during the interview process? My skills were a really good fit for what they were looking for and I could have many lengthy conversations with them about the past work I had done for other companies regarding what they were looking to get out of this role. It was serendipitous.
If you could give an in-transition executive any piece of advice, what would it be? Don’t be afraid to reach out again to interviewers about something interesting just to keep yourself top of mind. I sent an article about a project I had worked on before I left my previous company.
