The development of executive search in the sports space has become a vital component of both the college and professional ranks over the last decade, especially when it comes to universities going after the best candidates for athletic directors. Prodigy Sports' Vice President of Recruitment Mark Gress talks about the expansive nature of the sports industry executive search process, as well as the misconceptions of what a search firm can do for candidates, along with some of the ways that a hiring manager at a franchise can remain the end-all determination regardless of what the recruiter puts forth. Gress talks about how candidates can best prepare themselves, as well as some of the pitfalls of higher than honest expectations from young professionals about the decision-making process.
