Corporate Vision February 2017

K Company: Engine Group Name: Rick Eiserman Email: [email protected] Web Address: Address: 6922 Hollywood Blvd., 12th Floor, Hollywood, CA 90028, USA Telephone: +1 310-845-3000 Empowering your Message g We must create clarity and measurability around the mix of services clients really need. Our ultimate, collective goal should be to create value and growth for clients’ businesses rather than serving solely our own interests.” Speaking about his role as CEO, he told us that the key to his leadership style is encouragement. “I believe in empowering our people to create and innovate. I encourage the entrepreneurial mind set and I feel it’s important to support – both professionally and financially – ideas that our people are passionate about and that have the potential to lead to positive change.” And what has he found most challenging about the role? “I’ve had to get comfortable with what’s often uncomfortable. With how quickly the world moves today, you have to be prepared to be constantly changing and, importantly, to motivate your leaders and your teams to embrace this culture of change. In our business, we never stop innovating – making, doing, trying, building. That’s what makes this such an exciting industry to be in and, in my opinion, the most exciting time to be in it.” When looking to the future of the group, Rick is committed to raising the profile of the company and its broad range of services on its home soil. “Engine has spent the last two years acquiring companies, expanding businesses and launching new offerings. In 2017, we are making a stronger push to go to market in the U.S. Engine has considerable brand equity abroad, particularly in Europe. In the next 12 months, we’ll make significant efforts to further raise our profile and market relevancy stateside.” And where does Mr. Eiserman see himself, looking forward? “While it’s difficult to predict where the market and technology will be five years from now, I see myself continuing to lead, breaking new ground with the great talent and companies within the Engine Group. While we’ve made great progress, there is still so much opportunity ahead of us – new companies, geographies, ideas and innovation.”
