The Kelsey Group and Hawthorne Executive Search Reaffirm Relationship to Serve Yellow Pages, Electronic Directories and Local Media Industries

Princeton, NJ (December 13, 2004) -- Leadership experience and continuity are important in the Yellow Pages and interactive local media communities. To reinforce this, The Kelsey Group, provider of strategic research and analysis, data and competitive metrics to this marketplace, is pleased to confirm the continuation of its venture with the leading executive recruitment expert in the industry, Robert Hawthorne, and his organization, Hawthorne Executive Search.

Under this relationship, The Kelsey Group’s global Yellow Pages and interactive local media constituency has direct access to career opportunities available through Hawthorne Executive Search.

Recently, Hawthorne re-branded his company Hawthorne Executive Search, bringing together his two executive recruiting and consulting firms, and Lumina Consultants, under the new company name.

“The Kelsey Group has a relationship with Hawthorne Executive Search because we believe that Robert and his team have the integrity, knowledge and contacts to provide his clients with the highest quality service,” said John F. Kelsey, III, president, CEO and founder of The Kelsey Group.
“We congratulate the firm on the launch of the new brand, and look forward to our continued association.”

Over nearly a decade, Hawthorne and his companies have become a respected resource for executive talent in the industries and professional communities they serve. During that time, his firms have established strong relationships with organizations in these industries, including the Association of Directory Publishers, Association of Directory Marketing and Yellow Pages Association. Hawthorne Executive Search maintains a 95 percent completion rate for all engaged projects, successfully fulfilling more than 75 percent of its searches within 60 days of assignment. Clients retain the firm for its industry specialization, global network, commitment to total quality service and client loyalty.
