<strong>Boston &mdash; Oct. 3</strong><br />Movie stars always have employed talent agents to help develop their careers. Having knowledge of their client&rsquo;s goals and aspirations, the best are well-positioned to find their perfect roles, and companies such as Creative Artist Agency and William Morris are in the top tier. <br /><br />Why shouldn&rsquo;t highly accomplished executives have a &ldquo;William Morris&rdquo; to help direct and accelerate their &ldquo;next starring roles?&rdquo;<br /><br />That is the inspiration behind a new interim executive engagement consultancy called<br />EPOCH. Linda N. Stewart, founder, CEO and president, was interviewed<br />for a Career Transition edition of the popular Internet radio show, Total Picture Radio.<br /><br />On the show, Stewart, a former senior executive at Veritude and Fidelity, told Peter Clayton how EPOCH was conceived.<br /><br />&ldquo;Those free agents author Dan Pink writes about have moved from the big screen to the ballpark to the boardroom, and that&rsquo;s where we come in,&rdquo; she said. &ldquo;Businesses are feeling the effects of retiring baby boomers, loss of skilled executive talent and ever-tightening cost controls. Our interim C-level executives are able to do far more than just to fill an executive gap, they have leadership, formidable skills and experience to handle important initiatives that don&rsquo;t ever seem to get enough priority in today&rsquo;s high-pressure business environment.&rdquo;<br /><br />EPOCH&rsquo;s launch of its executive matchmaking services coincides with a time at which<br />top-level executives willing to take full-time roles are becoming more scarce while their<br />desire to work in new, more flexible ways is growing.<br /><br />With 78 million baby boomers in the U.S., (the number swells to 100 million by 2010),<br />Clayton asked Stewart if EPOCH is specifically geared to representing executives in the boomer demographic.<br /><br />&ldquo;We&rsquo;re looking for people who have minimum 20 years&#39; senior experience in the business world,” she responded.<br /><br />If you do the math, some Gen Xers could qualify, but the bar is set very high &mdash; EPOCH does a very thorough job of background checking and verification of all the candidates it represents.
