"We are pleased to announce the completion of the search for the Chief Executive Officer for the Houston Technology Center, www.houstontech.org. This completed assignment is a token of our commitment to the growth and development of leadership for the Houston community."
McKinley Arend International was cofounded by Lew Arend, President of Arend and Associates, Ltd. and the late Jim McKinley, President of the Kilwinning Corp in 1996. As we grew, we added additional colleagues we met and worked with on different assignments around the world. After Jim’s death in 2011, the firm continued with past and new business relationships with the expansion to include Bob Caton, President of Caton Search in London.
Since 1984, our collective firms have successfully completed more than 400 search assignments worldwide. Our principal office is in Houston, Texas. We don’t pretend to know the cultures of all our international clients, but with help from colleagues we draw upon several affiliations in London, Chicago, Hong Kong, Perth, Shanghai, Singapore, South Africa, Washington, D.C. and Mexico City. Formal research, as well as, our personal contacts, supplement our database to provide a thorough assessment of the market for each assignment. Our client base includes Global Fortune 500 companies and many rapidly growing smaller companies where technical staff and executive leadership are needed. We take pride that our clients continue to value our business relationship with repeat business. Our personal career experience in operations, sales/marketing, and international human resources combines with our formal engineering and advanced business education to create an effective external resource for our clients.
