CALM AND FORWARD THINKING
The Bachrach Group (TBG) is a nationwide staffing firm specializing in executive search, consulting and temporary placements. “Our recruiting team is one of the strongest in the country, with hundreds and hundreds of years of combined experience,” says managing partner Allan Ageman. “We pride ourselves on our forward thinking, and that has enabled us to be a step ahead of our competition.” TBG’s willingness to embrace new technologies as they become available has also been crucial, he says.
Quick Tip: “Always keep the lines of communication open, and be a good listener.”
As TBG has grown, the company has continually expanded its infrastructure and operations teams to support that growth. “My partner Anthony Fanzo and I embrace the idea of becoming a larger company, but we won’t get away from the small-company, high-ideals touch that got us to where we are,” says Ageman. In leading a fast-growing company, Ageman has learned several valuable lessons. “Don’t expect people to do what you won’t do, and show confidence,” he says. “No matter what’s going on, no matter how bad, good or indifferent, stay focused, stay calm and just be patient. Don’t let anybody see the trials and tribulations it takes to take a company from one level to another.” In the next five years, TBG wants to open up more markets and take more market share. “We are hoping in the next decade to be a market-leading national staffing company with offices in hundreds of markets across the country,” says Ageman.
