Traditional Technology


This area, technical recruiting, has been at that heart of all we have done at Core Competencies LLC over the last 15 years. Historically, Mike Pfirrman, founder of Core Competencies, started out in construction recruiting, mostly working with some of the country's largest commercial general contractors and EPC firms. Over time, that client list expanded to specialty or subcontractors (electrical, mechanical / industrial process, drywall, roofing, and glazing / curtain wall). From there, our expertise expanded into building products and highway construction. We now have quite a few of the largest building product manufacturers in the US (and globally) as clients. We also have done work in not only construction and building products, but also in traditional manufacturing as well.

Examples of positions filled are as diverse as Vice Presidents of Estimating, Preconstruction Managers, New Business Development, Project Managers, Estimators, Quality Control Directors, QC Techs, Superintendents, Product Managers, National Sales Managers, Plant Managers and Regional Operations Managers.

While we have moved part of our "core" business to Clean Tech, we still deliver valuable executive search / recruiting services to many traditional clients we have worked with, many for over a decade.
