Alliance International Presentation


Published on

In today’s struggling economic times it has never been more important for companies to look towards building a strong leadership team. Alliance International is a highly specialized recruiting firm that has identified Transitioning Junior Military Officers as an unparalleled source of leadership talent for positions in Operations, Engineering, Logistics, Service, and Sales. Did you know that Junior Military Officers gain more leadership experience in the 4-6 years they have serviced in the military than most employees do in over a decade of corporate experience?

We carefully select the top 10% performing transitioning JMO’s by reviewing both their academic and professional accomplishments and invite them to participate in one of the five hiring conferences we host annually. The Alliance Candidate program is the industry’s most competitive and sought after programs by Junior Military Officers. A Hiring Manager who attended one of our recent hiring conferences stated that “his time spent at one of our two day hiring conferences took care of his hiring needs for the entire year”.

Alliance is getting ready to launch its first hiring Conference of 2009 on January 26-27 in Raleigh, NC. We would like to extend an invitation to you or a representative from your company to attend. Please feel free to call or email me if you would like to register for the event or would like to explore how Junior Military Officers and Alliance can be a new talent pipeline for you and your company.

  3. 3. McGill Group <ul><li>McGill is a collection of companies that provide a variety of career opportunities for quality people. </li></ul><ul><li>McGill Limited Partnership </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Private Equity </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Franchise/entrepreneurial opportunities </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Stromboli's Express </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Italian Restaurants </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Franchise option thru McGill </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Alliance </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>JMO recruiting </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Executive recruiting </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Business support for McGill clients </li></ul></ul></ul>
  4. 4. Sergeant Troy McGill <ul><li>WW II Medal of Honor Winner </li></ul><ul><li>Died in combat in the South Pacific </li></ul><ul><li>Embodies the finest qualities of a veteran </li></ul>For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity above and beyond the call of duty in action with the enemy at Los Negros Island, Admiralty Group, on 4 March 1944. In the early morning hours Sgt. McGill, with a squad of 8 men, occupied a revetment which bore the brunt of a furious attack by approximately 200 drink crazed enemy troops. Although covered by crossfire from machineguns on the right and left flank he could receive no support from the remainder of our troops stationed at his rear. All members of the squad were killed or wounded except Sgt. McGill and another man, whom he ordered to return to the next revetment. Courageously resolved to hold his position at all cost, he fired his weapon until it ceased to function. Then, with the enemy only 5 yards away, he charged from his foxhole in the face of certain death and clubbed the enemy with his rifle in hand to hand combat until he was killed. At dawn 105 enemy dead were found around his position. Sgt. McGill's intrepid stand was an inspiration to his comrades and a decisive factor in the defeat of a fanatical enemy.
  5. 5. Our Staff <ul><li>Our senior management has over 100 years combined in various leadership positions in the corporate world and in the military </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Corporate Experiences Include </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>President & CEO </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>General Manager’s </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Corporate finance, production, operations, service, sales and retail management </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Military Experiences Include </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Service Academy Graduates </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>USNA </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>USMA </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>USAFA </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Branches of Service </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Army </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Air Force </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Marines </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Navy </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Company command, Infantry, Armor, Aviation, Special Operations, surface warfare, fighter pilot and combat support experience </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Corporate and military experience are essential to understanding and meeting the needs of our clients and candidates </li></ul>
  6. 6. Why JMO’s <ul><li>An excerpt from Jack Welch's new book : Jack: Straight from the Gut </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;In 1995, Bob Nardelli, CEO of GE Transportation, described a new source of great talent.  With its headquarters in Erie, Pennsylvania, the transportation business had struggled for years to attract the best people.  Bob said he found an endless supply of talent in junior military officers (JMOs).  Most were graduates of U.S. Military academies who had put in four to five years of military time.  They were hard working, smart, and intense, had leadership experience, and were surprisingly flexible because they had served time in some of the toughest places in the world.  Nardelli’s idea spread like wildfire.  After we had 80 former JMOs on staff, we asked them to come to Fairfield for a day.  We were all so impressed with the quality of what we saw that we put a plan in place to hire 200 of them every year.  We used our Session Cs to measure the success each business had hiring and promoting ex-JMOs.  Today we have more than 1,400 on the payroll.&quot; </li></ul>
  7. 7. Why JMO’s <ul><li>The need for talented leaders is more acute today than ever. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>A recent publication by McKinsey & Company reported that three-quarters of the executives in the 77 companies studied said their company either didn’t have enough leadership talent at times or was “ chronically short of talent.” </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>A majority(76%) of the 252 organizations surveyed by the corporate leadership council were less than fully confident in their ability to staff leadership positions across the next five years. While 64% reported that their CEOs strongly agreed that leadership was a top priority </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Junior military officers are an excellent source of leadership talent </li></ul>
  8. 8. Opportunities <ul><li>We have been highly successful in placing top tier JMO’s in the following areas: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Operations </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Sales </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Marketing </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Production </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Logistics </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Engineering </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Consulting </li></ul></ul>
