MYT Partner Corner - Colette_Dene_Combined_Pictures_11-26-13 (1)(ARN): Executive Search / Talent Strategy / Consulting

ARN has reinvented executive search by creating a new service model that meets the needs of the complete range of companies from entrepreneurial start-ups to large, well-established enterprises. We complete searches faster and more cost-effectively than traditional search firms, but there are two other unique differences between us and our competition.

First, our Partners and Consultants hail from both Executive Search and In-House Corporate Talent Management, thereby infusing our collective insights with best practices from both arenas. Second, we recruit the top talent required to propel businesses to ever-higher levels of growth and success. In essence, we become our client’s strategic partners, assessing their particular business complexities, identifying the drivers needed to open markets or transform their organizations and, lastly, by searching for, and finding, the right executive talent to help them “chart the course”.

The key to our success is our vast network of executives in many diverse industries and disciplines, as well as our alliance with unique trailblazers like MYT.  We are a dedicated partner with MYT and our initial assessment to you is free of charge. We have created a special program for clients who come to us through this newsletter and we would love to tell you about it! Please contact us at 631-262-0214 so we can learn more about your vision for the future of your business.

Globalization refers to the economic integration arising from the interchange of worldviews, intelligence, culture, and commerce. Globalization increases the connectivity and interdependence of markets beyond domestic borders. The convergence of the internet, email, and fiber optic communication enables the delivery of world-class service from anywhere.

Technological progress accelerates the velocity of knowledge and instantaneous collaboration synergizes innovation. As technology entrepreneurs and stewards of capital, we guide how people, commerce, and government adapt to this dynamic catalyst of change.


Sameer S. Somal, Chief Financial Officer

Sustaining America’s inherent competitive advantages requires a software and web technology partner committed to integrity and excellence. The small or middle market organization can benefit from new competition and transform challenges into opportunities.

We conducted an exhaustive global search to identify prominent software and web development companies.

We evaluated technical expertise, design capabilities, and consistent results through a series of simple and complex technology projects. We then assembled our Executive Team on this foundation of trust.
