Rob Miller joins Felix Global's Executive Search Practice as Director


Oak Brook, IL – June 17, 2021 – Felix Global, the premier leadership development, recruiting and outplacement firm, is excited to announce Rob Miller joined the team as a director.

Miller brings more than 20 years of retained search expertise, addressing clients’ most hard-to-fill positions. He specializes in recruiting for the C-suite, their direct reports and their teams. Miller works with private family-owned enterprises, private equity portfolio companies and public businesses in a variety of sectors, including professional services, financial services, healthcare/life sciences, industrial, consumer and technology.

"Rob is a trusted advisor and subject matter expert to boards, leadership teams and other key stakeholders,” said J. James O'Malley, managing director and Executive Search Practice leader. “He delivers a best-in-class client and candidate experience which is high-touch, collaborative, transparent and accessible.”

Prior to joining Felix Global, Miller successfully executed a number of retained searches with well-known national firms. Miller also spent 14 years in the retail industry, where he was a buyer for Neiman Marcus and The Limited. He developed his servant-leadership style growing up in his family’s specialty retail business.

“The war for talent is being fought every day and companies need to include retained search as part of their talent acquisition strategy,” said Miller. “I am looking forward to combining all of my career experiences and lessons learned to help arm our clients in filling their most critical positions.”

Miller’s hiring represents Felix Global’s latest commitment to enhancing its retained search offerings for clients. The firm recently announced the hiring of O’Malley as well as Marc Detampel, as managing director, in February. O’Malley brings 30 years of talent acquisition solutions. In 2018, he co-founded a retained search firm focused on recruitment in the private equity, professional services and financial services sectors. Detampel brings 25 years of consulting experience to the Felix Global team that includes advising on executive talent, human capital strategy, change management, leadership development and organizational design. He is focused on recruiting and talent management issues for clients in professional services, telecommunications, wireless and cable.

The new Executive Search Practice is part of Felix Global’s growth strategy, which includes expanding and enhancing the firm’s portfolio of services while continuing to provide clients with the best and most thorough human capital improvement services in the industry. Miller’s arrival solidifies Felix Global’s commitment to address this demand spike from talent acquisition consulting.
