TDW Show feat: Woody Helfand of Patrice & Assoc discusses excellence in hiring

The Doctor Whisperer - the BUSINESS of medicine

Tune in (10/30/20) to The Doctor Whisperer Show, at 5:30 pm EST, to welcome Woody Helfand, CEO and Business Owner of Patrice and Associates of Clearwater, and hear him discuss excellence in hiring After years of throwing caution to the wind and living on the edge as an adrenaline junkie, Woody finally stopped. No more chasing hurricanes to surf, no more 100-foot cliff dives, no more full contact Kung Fu in the ring in Miami. No more racing motorcycles and cars, no more trick skateboarding, no more rock, blues, and jazz bands. No more theater. Looking around at his life one day at the ripe old age of 23 he realized he was the only obstacle in his way of making a success of himself. It was truly an epiphany. Woody cut his hair, put on a tie and began to find out what honest, hard work will bring...incredible success! He and his wife Kathy are the co-owners of Patrice & Associates, one of the largest recruiting firms in North America. While they are able to work nationally in scope, their enormous territory runs from Port Richey, Florida all the way down US 19 to Indian Rocks and all points in between including the City of Oldsmar. Woody is ecstatic to be back at work on a local platform as the last company he and his wife owned was national. He is very excited to be a part of AMPLIFY Clearwater. The short story is that they sold their business after 10 years and had seller’s remorse before the deal was closed. Woody’s counsel contacted the buyer and said Woody wanted to buy the business back and they never did respond. It took all of 2 months to realize retirement was not for them. Muttering under his breath one day he said to his wife as he passed her in the hallway, “This retirement stuff stinks”, Kathy said, “I’m getting a job I can’t stand it.” And that’s how they came to decide that they worked together very well and wanted to purchase a business that would do good for others before they were rewarded which is how they ended up at Patrice & Associates. Woody Helfand brings extensive sales leadership staffing, hospitality and senior leadership experience to the P&A team and makes him uniquely qualified to identify top talent for his nationwide clients. Woody is a Certified Executive Search Specialist. This designation provides the knowledge and experience to recruit talent across all business platforms. Woody’s nearly 25 years as a corporate turnaround specialist helped him learn recruiting as a former HR executive. During his advancements into executive leadership roles he also became a member of succession planning teams for organizations. Prior to his national responsibilities he sold advertising and marketing plans to local businesses and served on many Chamber of Commerce boards always somehow ending up as Director of Public Relations and Profit Making. He lives with his bride, Kathy and their youngest son, Brandon who will return to college in October. They reside in Tarpon Springs by the Gulf of Mexico. They have a total of four children 3 grown and successful are blessed with three grandsons. Thank you to our incredible sponsor TieTechnology for sponsoring the show!
