Speaker: Alex Stepien, CEO, Cappex

Please introduce yourself & the role you needed to fill.

Alex Stepien: My name is Alex Stepien, CEO of Cappex. When it came time for Cappex to hire a General Manager for our enrollment services division, we turned to Shortlist.

What was the outcome of your Shortlist?

Alex Stepien: Our Shortlist produced a handful of really high-quality candidates that led to significantly positive conversations with about 4 or 5 who were serious enough and a good fit to take further in our process. Ultimately, we were able to find our dream candidate from Shortlist and bring her on board to lead our enrollment services division.

What do you love most about Shortlist?

Alex Stepien: For me, the speed & scale of Shortlist was simply beyond what I expected. I was able to have really high-quality conversations with a number of quality candidates who were passive job seekers, just not the kind of folks that I was seeing through other executive search firms.

Would you recommend Shortlist to others? Why?

Alex Stepien: If you're making a key executive or leadership hire, you know that getting to the right candidate is worth its weight in gold. Shortlist was a no-brainer step that got us in front of a high volume of significant quality candidates in a short amount of time, and at a fraction of the cost of what I would have paid to a contingency recruiter.
