Career opportunities at Global Direct Investment
Solutions are expected to be limited to a small number of highly experienced
professionals with relevant backgrounds in location consulting, strategy
development, corporate real estate, engineering and construction, project
finance, or other aspects of this niche market. We may also look for
professionals experienced in the sale of professional services to specific
industries, or in regional markets, including "key account" relationship
The main role will be to serve as the relationship leaders responsible
for maintaining a limited number of close working relationships among
executives at participating companies in a particular region or industry
specialty. There may also be some support positions for this
The work also involves regional or industry marketing activities to identify
who may need support for major project plans, and to develop and maintain good working
relationships with them as well as a number of professional service providers and area representatives.
Such local knowledge and contacts are then shared with colleagues to support
their work with executives in other regions.
The work also involves research to help develop and maintain appropriate
contacts (other than active participants in our services) and market
knowledge in the assigned region or industry specialty.

Professionals who can bring valuable relationships to GDI Solutions are
encouraged to contact us directly if potentially interested in a career with us.
This may include
strong personal networks among top executives at large or fast-growing companies
in a region or industry, non-confidential
knowledge of active project plans among companies which might wish to
participate in our services, and the proven ability to support corporate investment
projects. For example,

providers, including regional "business retention and expansion" work, may have
developed a unique network of contacts who would value our services.
The proven ability to do the initial contact work and effective
introductions, research, and follow-up to develop strong support relationships
among executives at leading companies is critical. The work requires
creativity to identify valuable but unexpected solutions in many industries and
business locations, as well as the personal initiative and ability to anticipate
investor needs and be suitably prepared to respond quickly and effectively to
requests for support.

We do not intend to offer job listing or executive search services, but
will be glad to share information about services which our participants have
found to be valuable, and welcome suggestions in this regard.
The Contacts section may include such suggestions in the future
as a separate category.
