Melissa Armentrout, Owner of Skycrest Incorporated, answers Businessing Magazine’s 5 Questions. She discusses the importance of staying true to your personal convictions when it comes to business.
What are the primary service(s) or product(s) that your business provides?
Skycrest is an Executive Search Consulting firm focused on the Life Science industry globally.
Who’s your perfect customer? Do you work with other business (B2B), or consumers (B2C), or both?
I worked directly with companies who need to find executive level talent in the market for key open roles in their organization.
When did you start your company? Share a little about your professional history leading up to starting your company.
I started my company in 2008. I spent 15 years in Corporate Human Resources roles before making a change into executive search. I spent two years at a boutique executive search firm focused on the life sciences and then started my own business. My goal is to provide personalized consulting services with the utmost level of ethics and integrity.
What are one or two things that you’ve learned the hard way?
I’ve learned that it’s OK to walk away from a business opportunity if you don’t think you will be successful or it will comprise your own personal ethics.
What is one thing most people don’t know about your business or industry that you wish they did?
I don’t find people jobs, I help companies find people. We are not an employment agency, but a consulting firm for companies needing executive assessment and talent acquisition.
