New York, NY – May 11, 2017
Search Inc. launches a new division in the educational arena that teams Wendy Weiler, founder of EduStrategies a consulting company that successfully worked with over 80 education-based vendors, with Elisa Calabrese, Ed.D., former Chief Talent Development Officer and Assistant Superintendent for Broward County Public Schools, the sixth-largest school district in the nation. This team will be supported by a stellar research team and recruiting professionals based in New York City, with over 20 years of experience.
Wendy Weiler joined Search Inc. to focus on recruiting for companies that service the educational market. Wendy’s experience and credentials in the field of education make her well-suited to understand the needs of the school districts and how to translate that to building successful companies that sell to that industry.
Prior to making this transition, Wendy was the founder of EduStrategies, which has for over 25 years counseled education-based companies. As an out-sourced resource to ALAS as VP of Business Development, she and her team re-established and grew that organization of Latino Superintendents to be the strong voice they are today in education. She developed and sold sponsorships to K12 vendors for ALAS that drove revenues to exceed expectations. As President of EduStrategies, Wendy launched start-ups and foreign companies into the US education market. Before a career in education, Wendy was a recruiter for the IT industry. She was also instrumental in growing an HR Consulting Firm by hiring and training sales and marketing staff that drove quotas as high as 110%.
Dr. Elisa Calabrese has over 28 years of experience in executive and academic leadership positions in education. As the Chief Talent Development Officer of Broward County Public Schools, Elisa launched educational business expansion services that improved talent acquisition pipelines, professional learning opportunities, career advancement programs, and performance evaluation systems for over 20,000 employees. Her ongoing work with public, private, non-profit, and foundation organizations to create and sustain innovation and improvement, led to securing over $100 million in grant funds.
Search Inc.’s vision is to work with companies to grow revenues and establish them as “thought leaders” in the industry. Wendy and Elisa’s knowledge of the vendor sector and the school district perspectives will lead to an open dialogue. Their search will find top vetted candidates while taking into consideration educators who could play a key role in designing, selling, and launching products into the educational community. Let their team be your informed advisor with a fresh perspective in this fast-changing educational market. They will be your strategic partner who turns your vision into reality.
