Torch Group Places VP of Strategic Communications for Kindle Communications

CLEVELAND, Aug. 09, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Torch Group, Inc., a leading retained boutique executive search firm specializing in senior, executive, and C-level marketing, communications, sales, and business development talent, today announced the successful completion of a confidential search on behalf of Kindle Communications, LLC, a Chicago-based full-service communications consulting and corporate events management agency. Susie Wolf recently joined the Kindle team as vice president of strategic communications and will service executive and C-suite clientele, developing and counseling them on a range of communications to internal constituencies.

“We had great chemistry with our Kindle Communications partners the moment we met them,” said Michele Torch, executive vice president, Torch Group. “We built on that chemistry with consistent communication and a shared desire to identify the right type of candidate from the start. Using our Signature Search Process™, we wasted no time in identifying and presenting high-quality candidates that would ultimately be impactful for Kindle and their clients. The Kindle Communications team met us more than halfway by giving us candid input and honest feedback needed to do our job well. This search engagement was a wonderful partnership that we hope to continue.”

Kindle Communications’ vice president of strategic communications role is responsible for positively affecting its Fortune 500 client’s results by serving as a consultant and trusted advisor to their senior executives on their mission-critical messaging directed at their sales organizations, employees, and colleagues.

“Torch Group helped us to identify a candidate with the right mix of technical expertise and personality for this role, and who would fit seamlessly into our company culture,” said Jim Finger, partner and strategist, Kindle Communications. “In the early weeks of her tenure with us there has been universal confidence and optimism that Susie will make a tremendous impact.”

Torch Group takes the same strategic approach with its candidates as it does with its clients, even after the offer is accepted. “I really valued the partnership I developed with the Torch team,” said Wolf. “I did not anticipate such a high level of transparency and communication. I leaned on the Torch Group to guide me through this significant career decision, which included relocating my family, to take on a new role with Kindle – a position I was not even looking for at the beginning of this journey. It’s truly unique to have this type of high-touch experience during the hiring process.”
