Meet the Team: Frank Testa
Position: Head of Resources
Location: Audubon, PA
Joined ORS: April 2012
Alma Mater: West Chester University
Why did you choose ORS?
I was initially intrigued by ORS and the model based on the success of the previous version of the company (Tapfin/TWC). Terry and the team have scaled countless organizations, making my decision to join ORS an easy one. I also chose ORS as I wanted to help grow the internal organization as we were a true start-up in 2012.
How would you describe a recruiter versus a talent consultant?A talent consultant is a professional that can has the added responsibility to help hire key individuals within an organization as well as provide guidance and recommendations to optimize their talent function.
What has been the most exciting or rewarding project you’ve taken part in while at ORS?This is a tough one to answer as I’ve been part of several projects, either as the dedicated talent consultant or in an account management capacity. I would have to say the most rewarding project is my 5+ year tenure at iPipeline as the lead consultant, where we helped scale their organization from 200 employees to over 700+, all while the organization completed several key acquisitions along the way. The ORS team built interview training, optimized an employee referral program, and hired a team in Tokyo, Japan during this engagement. They remain a trusted partner to this day.
What is most challenging about your position?
My current position as the Head of Resources is challenging as I work directly with both sales and delivery to ensure projects are staffed effectively. It is critical that we have a pipeline of top talent consultants across all industries in our queue to support the growth of the organization.
What skills make someone successful at ORS?
People who are agile and flexible have done very well at ORS based on the nature of consulting. The variety of work is a great selling point as you may work on 3-4 completely different projects over the course of a one-year period, which makes being agile and flexible a critical skill of our consultants.
Tell us about something you like to do outside of work.
I enjoy spending time with family and watching my children compete in their respective activities. I also enjoy playing a round of golf and a friendly game of Texas Hold’em with friends and family.
Who or what inspires you?
My mom has inspired and helped motivate me throughout my life. She started our family at an early age and always ensured we were cared for. She was able to balance work and school, completed her master's degree in Nursing, and now runs the clinic at a large, assisted living facility. She is the type of person that has continued to push herself to better our family as a whole.
