An Important Message from Founder Valerie Frederickson

Dear Valued Clients, Candidates and Friends,

We’ve recently heard that since the merger of Frederickson Partners with Gallagher, some competitors have implied that I have retired and am no longer running the firm. Nothing could be further from the truth.

In fact, I am more inspired and engaged than ever since joining forces with Gallagher because it furthers our mission to help all organizations improve their human resources (HR) function. Our specialty is understanding our client’s strategic drivers, translating them into an HR strategy and building out an HR team to execute it. That’s what I’m doing with the HR searches I’m leading and what our entire team does. I’m proud that we are a Gallagher company and proud to see how many of our current clients are Gallagher clients, to meet the incredible teams of benefits and risk consultants we have around the world, and to be part of a truly world-class, super high-performing executive search team with expertise that spans global industries.

I’m also happy to see how well our current clients have responded to the news that we have been quietly adding experienced executive search consultants who specialize in CRO, CMO, CTO, CEO and board searches. Yes, Frederickson has now expanded our services to include C-suite executive search.. We will work with companies to recruit senior-level executives ranging from CEOs and boards of directors, to CROs, CFOs and other C-level and Vice President roles. I’m particularly pleased to take these next steps at a time when unemployment is at its lowest point in 50 years, and organizations continue to experience an acute need for talent, in order to lead in this rapidly-changing world. I’m looking forward to the next decade as we grow the practice with Gallagher.

Moving ahead, we will continue to provide the world-class robust support to all our clients that we have throughout our history.

Many of you have asked to do a joint call with a Gallagher representative to talk risk or benefits strategies. We’re scheduling those as quickly as we can and look forward to providing you with continued exceptional service overall. Please feel free to reach out to me to schedule a call or to touch base for any reason.

Thank you for your trust and confidence over the years. We are just getting started!
