Need to have strong and relevant experience in the following:

  1. Someone driven and directed internal communications specifically. Not someone with PR or  marketing communications experience.
  2. Finding someone who can support senior leaders, person in this role would need to partner with sr. leaders as a part of that global operations leadership team so we are referring to Sr.VP, that level and confidently direct their communications and demonstrate that they have done in the past. The person with the right type of presentation is really important but also has some demonstrated experience supporting a senior leader in their communications not only in drafting but in terms of building a strategy, holding meetings where you are pushing back or redirecting a leader on how they may want to approach a specific communication.  That is what we are struggling to find a person with that type of specific experience.
