Finding the right fit is Scout’s edge.

Originally from Australia, Tamas cut his teeth in the world of finance as a CPA for KPMG during the nineties. His ten-year KPMG career had him on the move: from Melbourne to Chicago to Prague, and finally, to Minnesota. “In my experience, I’m never come into an organization that does not have a need for process improvement or some sort of accounting and finance project, such as integrating an acquisition or implementing a new general ledger system, or creating SEC reporting, etc. I’d jump in and see a need—and identify what needs to be done. Typically, the need to execute a project or improve a process in a timely manner requires expertise and external resources. That’s how I came to use firms like Scouts.”

“Scouts is one of my first calls.”

As the Senior Vice President of Business Analytics & Pricing for a national consumer finance firm, Tamas relies on Mark Flaherty and the Scouts Talent team to efficiently help him find the right people. “I only use consulting firms that focus on the criteria of the need for the project. Scouts is one of my first calls,” says Tamas. And the fit has been so on point that the three Scouts consultants placed with him in the last year turned into full-time hires. Tamas attributes Mark’s placement success to their close relationship. “He knows how I work professionally and how I am personally. It helps him identify the candidates that will work well with me. That’s Scout’s edge.”

Fair pricing is part of the equation.

“I’m not necessarily driven by price—I need the right resource for the need,” reflects Tamas. “Scouts pricing is comparable with other placement firms, yet fair pricing is evident when I see how upbeat and happy their consultants are. Compensation is never a gripe. You can tell when a consultant isn’t happy with their equation – that has never been the case with a Scouts consultant that I have experienced.”
