OK, I know it's been a loooong while. It has been an interesting few months. To make a long story short, I've been preoccupied with my latest project – the launch of Palatucci Executive Search, LLC. I was in discussions with a (surprisingly large, given the economy) number of search firms, from small boutiques to the majors. It was all very flattering, but at the end of the day, I couldn’t get past the math of handing over 30 – 50 percent of what I earn to someone else for the privilege of putting their name on my business card.

So, with the encouragement of current clients, past clients and almost clients, I decided to go it alone. The early results are good – I’m working on two searches. That’s the good news. The bad news is that if you go to my company website, you’ll see a picture of a car (no joke). I’ve got my head down in execution on the searches, so the details like the website and announcement have taken a back seat.

I may be kinda scarce around here for the time being, but I should be able to say something comparatively meaningful in the relatively near term.

Wish me luck!
