Podcast: Greg Savage, Founder of Firebrand Talent Search

Last week, I had the pleasure of speaking with Greg Savage of Firebrand Talent Search. Savage, who resides in Sydney, Australia, is formerly the International CEO of Aquent, which recently refocused its business on temp, contract, freelance, and temp-to-perm placement. Its permanent placement business was rebranded under the Firebrand name and is being headed by several former executives from Aquent, including Savage. In part 1 of this podcast, Savage talks about Aquent’s decision to focus on temp placement and his decision to lead the new permanent placement business with Firebrand. He also shares some valuable information on his experience leading and guiding offices across the world – from managing diverse cultures to understanding common principles of recruiting that are standard no matter the location.
