For more than 25 years, the company has thrived— and continues to grow—based on that vision. Originally established as experts in wholesale apparel recruiting, and first in the field to recognize the rise of specialty retail as a dominant factor in the soft-goods industry, berglass + associates successfully grew as the leading search firm in that space. As the Internet began to show early signs of influence, the firm’s leadership innately understood that a paradigm shift was taking place and that retail was about to be redefined. With a focus on what made this new industry work and what would be required of its most successful leaders, Berglass + Associates quickly became the premier management executive search firm serving the online retail space, both pure- play and traditional brick-and-mortar. By combining a substantive history in retailing with a contemporary understanding of the online world’s unique talent needs, berglass + associates has successfully completed digital leadership placements at Gilt Group, Stuart Weitzman, Kenneth Cole, David's Bridal, Cache, Shopko and Bluefly.com. www.berglassassociates.com iCIMS iCIMS is one of the fastest-growing vendors of Talent Management Software, as well as a global leader in Human Resources technology.
