Hollander Consultants, having completed its highest ever year in 2004, continues its expansion into 2005. Fred King, Hollander CEO, determined through a careful evaluation of the company that, in order to maintain and broaden this expansion, a new position would have to be created and filled. This position is the Executive Establishment Officer, a novel post for most consulting organizations.
In order to fill this position, Dave Worthen, who arrived at Hollander Consultants last year as Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer, has been promoted to Executive Establishment Officer. For the previous four years, Worthen had operated as CEO of Get Loud Marketing, Inc. based in Boulder, Colorado. Prior to that, he held the position of Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Mueller International. Mueller International is a full-service marketing organization for high tech business-to-business Fortune 1000 companies and has had clients such as 3M, AT&T, Dun & Bradstreet, General Motors, Hewlett-Packard, McDonnell Douglas and IBM.
The Executive Establishment Officer is responsible for isolating areas within a company that aren’t fully established in terms of manpower and/or training and seeing to it that the proper hiring, training, and apprenticing occurs. By raising the level of competency with individual staff members, a broader base of stable employees results and further expansion can occur.
Larry Silver, president of Hollander Consultants, said, “The past 12 months have been exciting for us. We capped our best year ever, created this new position and, as a result, we’re currently experiencing very stable and steady growth. We’ve already hit a new peak in client completions, and are experiencing a large increase over the last month in new clients coming onto our program. With Dave on this new job, we predict this type of growth to continue through the end of the year resulting in our best year ever.”
Based in Portland, Hollander Consultants was named one of the top 50 companies to work for in Oregon by Oregon Business magazine, the chief publication for Oregon businesses.
