Managing PartnerPractice: Accounting & Finance
Location: Phoenix, AZ
Curt Webb knows that recruiters have a tendency to talk. It’s part of the job and conversation comes naturally to people who work in such a people-oriented industry. But listening—truly listening—is what distinguishes the great recruiters from the good in Curt’s eyes.
Investing time and listening to what a client truly wants in a position separates those who view each opportunity as a mere transaction from those who see it as the basis for a long-term relationship. Curt understands the importance of listening carefully and from his first call to a potential client in Houston to his accounting and finance (A&F) recruiting efforts in Phoenix, Curt listens closely to what clients and candidates say…and don’t say.
Careful listening allows Curt to intelligently search, recruit, negotiate and follow-up long after the position is filled. Understanding what his client’s priorities are and how a new position can help a candidate fulfill career objectives increases his ability to deliver two or three outstanding candidates, not a pile of resumes. By understanding those motivations and delivering highly qualified clients, Curt is able to successfully fulfill every exclusive recruiting assignment he’s ever undertaken.
Curt takes a highly professional and consultative approach with his clients and candidates, relating to clients and candidates as partners, maintaining communication with them long after he’s made a placement. He provides candid advice, market guidance, and consistent feedback throughout the recruiting and hiring process.
He’s very responsive to individual needs and takes great pride in providing outstanding customer service. Curt pays close attention to emerging A&F trends. In the Arizona market, for instance, Curt has seen more integration between accounting and finance in the last 18 months. Clients are looking for candidates who can effectively blend the two disciplines, thereby helping them control costs and manage programs.
When not recruiting, Curt loves the outdoors. He enjoys hunting and fishing in Texas, camping and biking in Arizona, and watching movies and playing in softball leagues with his new wife.
Curt’s awareness of the A&F industry and deep knowledge of the Arizona market, make Curt a valuable partner for both clients and candidates. If you’re hunting for the perfect candidate or job, Curt is a great friend to have in the A&F recruiting business.
