Why Work With Executive Head-Hunters in Miami

Whether you’re looking for a VP, director, CIO or any other executive, these recruitment situations create significant challenges which Miami recruiting agencies such as Reaction Search International can address:

  • Geographic distances: Your next director of sales or COO may live in Miami, but the right fit may also be a professional halfway across the country. Where can you start looking? Reaction Search International has contacts across the state of Florida, across the country and around the globe, so we can expand the search as far as necessary.
  • Multi-faceted searches: For top professionals to work at your company, they need not only the skills to do their job but also the passion and drive to steer your company. They also have to have the culture fit, personality and soft skills to work well with the people already on your team. Reaction Search International uses an intensive recruitment process to help evaluate professionals so they can successfully integrate with your organization.
  • Risks: Executives have a direct and dramatic impact on your company success. They are the ones deciding future projects, shaping the culture at your organization and more. The right c-suite executive can lead the vanguard charge towards your business’s success. The wrong hire can lead to low morale, lost money, lost opportunities and even a lower bottom line. Reaction Search International has the expertise to help you mitigate the risk and guarantee a good fit, so you can step into the future with confidence.
  • Hidden candidates: The professional ideal for your company might not be actively looking for a position, may not be on LinkedIn and may not be easy to find. Reaction Search International has connections in every industry as well as access to the hidden talent pool to give you a wider reach.

The land on which Miami sits emerged 15,000 years ago when Wisconsin glaciation caused the sea level to drop. If Al Gore is right, and climate change causes massive increases in the Atlantic sea level, Miami will be in a lot of trouble. Miami is located at the Southern tip of Florida, and its climate is classified as “tropical monsoon” or “tropical wet.” It is warm here all year round with hot (muy caliente) and humid summers and warm, drier winters.

In the summertime, daily temperatures in Miami average over 85°F with average daily lows of 75° and highs of around 90°. Humidity levels are fairly high, at around 85% in the morning and 65% in the afternoon. Rainfall is highest in the summer, with rain levels peaking at around 9 inches in June and August. Average daily wind speeds are lowest in the summer, at around 8 mph. Sunshine levels are around 70% all year, but only 10% of days in the summer are clear of clouds.

In the wintertime, Miami’s weather is very nice. Daily temperatures average around 70° with daily highs of 75-80° and lows of 60-65°. Morning and afternoon humidity levels are around 85% and 60% respectively. Rainfall is much lower than during the summer, at around 2 inches per month. Wind speeds average between 9 and 10 mph and 30% of days are clear of clouds.

Things to Do…

Miami is known for its beaches and its many outdoor activities. These are some parks and recreational places worth checking out. Bayfront Park (pictured) is a 32-acre municipal park in Miami’s Biscayane Bay. It contains a 10,000-seat amphitheater, an auto racing circuit, and some beach areas along the coast. Bicentennial Park is a 30-acre public, urban park just north of American Airlines Arena and Bayside marketplace. It is about to be renamed Museum Park as it is home to the new Miami Art Museum and the Miami Science Museum. Fairchild Tropical Botanic garden is an 83-acre botanic garden, located south of Coral Gables, FL, that contains tropical plants such as: palms, cycads, flowering trees, and vines. It is also the home of the American Orchid Society. Finally, Tropical Park, not to be confused with Fairchild, is a 275-acre urban park east of South Miami. It opened in 1979 and contains areas to run or jog and places to play soccer, football, softball, basketball, and volleyball.


There are many fun outdoor activities in Miami. If you want to take a break and try something indoors, try one of the city’s many museums. The Frost Art Museum is a major cultural institution at Florida International University that contains an extensive collection of 20th Century Latin American art. HistoryMiami is a 40,000 square foot building in downtown Miami with exhibits covering 12,000 years of southeastern Florida history. The Miami Children’s Museum is a good place to take the kids. It offers hundreds of bilingual, interactive exhibits and learning materials related to arts, culture, community, and communication. The Miami Science Museum contains a planetarium, an observatory, and a wildlife center. And finally, the Vizcaya Museum and Gardens (pictured) is a beautiful art museum and National Landmark at the former villa and estate of businessman James Deering.

Florida Keys:

The Florida Keys is a group of over 1,700 islands below the tip of the Floridian Peninsula, 15 miles southwest of Miami. The 127-mile Overseas Highway connects most of these islands and links them to the rest of Florida. Part of the Overseas Highway, the Seven Mile Bridge, is a world-famous bridge and Florida landmark. It connects Knight’s Key to Little Duck Key and was one oft the largest bridges in the world when it was originally built in 1912. Around 80,000 people live in the Florida Keys, with 32% of them residing in Key West. Key West is 3,370 acres of desirable real estate, 90 miles from Cuba. It is not uncommon for Cuban refugees to reach the Keys Islands by raft. Key Largo is the largest Keys Island, and another popular tourist destination. Many rich businesspeople and celebrities own beachfront mansions on this band of tropical islands.

Freedom Tower:

Freedom tower is one of the most recognizable landmarks in Miami. It is a large, gold and white, 255-foot, Spanish Renaissance Revival building designed by the Shultze and Weaver architectural firm and built in 1925. It was originally built as the headquarters and printing facility of the Miami News newspaper company. When the company moved to a new facility in the late 1950s, Freedom Tower became an immigration facility for the waves of Cuban refugees coming to Miami. The federal government sold the building to private ownership in 1974. In 1997 Jorge Mas Canosa purchased the building and turned it into a monument for Cuban refugees. It currently holds a museum, a library, a meeting hall, and the offices of the Cuban American National Foundation. In 2008 Freedom Tower was designated a National Historic Landmark.

St. Bernard de Clairvaux Church:

The St. Bernard de Clairvaux Church is one of the oldest buildings in the Western Hemisphere. The church’s history is quite fascinating. It was built in Segovia, Spain between the years 1133 and 1141. The church acted as a Cistercian monastery for 700 years until it was sold off and became a granary in 1830. In 1925 William Randolph Hearst purchased the monastery’s cloisters and outbuildings and had them shipped to the US in pieces. The pieces sat in 11,000 crates in a Brooklyn, NY warehouse until 1952 when Raymond Ross and William Edgemon purchased them. They reassembled the pieces at a plant nursery north of Miami over 19 months and at a cost of $1.5 million. In 1964 Bishop Henry I. Louttit purchased the reassembled building for the Episcopal Dicese of South Florida. In 1972 the St. Bernard de Clairvaux Church was added to the National Register of Historic Places.

Miami Circle:

The Miami Circle at Brickell Point is an archaeological site in downtown Miami. It is a 38-foot wide circle with 600 postmolds and 24 holes cut into the limestone bedrock. In archaeology a postmold is “a soil discoloration caused by decay of a wooden post where it had been buried upright in the ground.” The hole was discovered in 1998 and is believed to have been used as the foundation for a 1,700-2,000 year old Tequesta structure. In 2009 the Miami Circle became a National Historic Landmark. HistoryMiami currently owns the site and offers an audio tour of the circle.
