How Rose Katalbas Experienced John Clements’ End-to-End Commitment to Service
As both a candidate and client of John Clements Consultants, Inc., SunPower Corporation’s Vice President for Human Resources Rose Katalbas has experienced exceptional and loyal service from both ends of the corporation.
“I have been a client of John Clements for many years,” she shares. “I met Mario [Biscocho, Executive Search and Selection Division Head] when I was starting in my career, and we have worked together for all this time. John Clements is a legend in the industry.”
Having experienced working with John Clements for so many years, Katalbas has developed and maintained a strong relationship with the company. She stated, “[My] relationship with John Clements has been both professional and personal. They’ve helped me place critical positions, those that are very difficult to search in the Philippines. John Clements has a network in Asia, which is why we have also tapped them for that. They’ve helped me source, especially for very difficult positions that may or may not be available in the Philippines.”
“John Clements provides insights [about] what’s going on in the market, and what’s going on in the Philippines at large. They really don’t have to do that, but they do. So I think that John Clements is not just a search firm, it’s a business enterprise that caters to the needs of every customer.”
Katalbas is a staunch advocate of John Clements’ services and relationship management because she’s been a grateful recipient herself. She knows that until today, she has a loyal support system that she can rely on.
“I would make a call and always get entertained. I would ask for advice, or meet up and try to do a self-assessment, and they would give insights,” she recalled. “Besides being very professional people to deal with, John Clements is strong in its adjacent services, like providing newsletters, business trends, and Harvard Business Review articles. John Clements is also strong in relationship management with the client, and extremely flexible. It is not easy to deal with an industry that is very changeable, but John Clements is very patient to understand that. They also try to connect clients [with each other]. They would host activities, invite us to expert talks. They’re very well-rounded, and are even growing beyond the country.”
