Ed Keil founded Plastic Executive Recruiters in 2005 and as the business has grown, opened Reliance Recruiting to service non-plastics industry clients in 2008. In 2011, Reliance and Plastic Executives opened an office off Dupont Road in Fort Wayne, where they employ a staff of 6 recruiters and researchers.
Ed’s experience encompasses more than 15 years of hands-on executive recruitment, management, sales management and product marketing in the plastics industry and various other industries. He has extensive experience recruiting for — and working in — operations that produce extruded, injection molded, and thermo-formed products.
Ed holds certifications as a “Certified Personnel Consultant” and “Certified Employee Retention Specialist”. These certifications represent a commitment to not only finding the right person, but doing so in such a way that the employee is a great fit in personality, values, and experience/qualifications. In addition to these certifications, Ed’s companies are members of Top Echelon and IPA, two of the premier recruiting affiliations. They are members of SPE and members of the National Association of Personnel Services.
Both retained and contingent searches are offered, as well as customized searches depending on circumstances. They also offer outplacement services, assessments, background checks, reference checks, degree verification, and many other organizational development consulting services in conjunction with their partners and affiliates.
Candidates/Applicants are identified through a combination of classical recruiting methods in combination with the most modern recruiting techniques and social networking. Though technology is great, the bulk of their placements occur as a result of traditional hard work–calling thousands of people directly, asking for referrals, and networking in the applicable industry.
