After 18 years in Accounting, going back to school, a long job search and one short job stint, I started working for Peter Bell, (with his partner at the time, Elaine Goldman), at Goldman+Bell and The Goldman Group exactly 21 years ago today on October 27, 1997. I became a Public Relations & Communications Executive Recruiter. That position lasted more than five years.
In 2003 Peter let me join his new firm, Peter Bell & Associates, LLC in the same role until he closed the company in 2016. I then opened my own company BAP EXECUTIVE SEARCH LLC. Working for Peter was the best professional experience of my life! Peter and I are always in touch and meet every couple of months for lunch. The picture at the top of this post was from lunch in March 2017. It was NOT taken on October 27, 1997.
Peter has been a boss, friend, mentor and hero and I plan for it to be the same 21 years from today also.
BAP EXECUTIVE SEARCH LLC specializes in placing public relations, communications, investor relations, marketing and social media professionals in mid- to senior level professionals at corporations, public relations firms and non-profits across all industries in full-time positions.
