In a move to expand its electrical and instrumentation (E&I) offerings, which already comprised Wolfenson Electric, Taurus acquired Amber Electric LLC in 2021, thereby expanding its customer base and capabilities under a unified E&I division. Taurus sought a new leader for its combined E&I division who would need to lead both the integration of the two businesses and continue the firm’s organic growth. Taurus turned to BIC Recruiting, who placed Troy Donaldson into the role of President, E&I.

“I have used BIC’s services multiple times over the course of many years, both for recruiting and marketing services,” said Taurus CEO Hari Gopu. “Given BIC’s knowledge of this market, it made a lot of sense to contact BIC Recruiting. The team has a very unique position within the industrial market; they are so connected and attuned to what’s going on.”

After engaging BIC’s Recruiting division, Gopu received information on several qualified candidates within a few weeks. They had all been interviewed and carefully vetted by BIC prior to submission. The interviewing process moved forward quickly and smoothly.

Donaldson has over 20 years of industrial E&I experience bringing extensive results in leading teams, customer engagement, construction management, estimation and project & controls management.

“We are delighted to have Troy Donaldson on our team,” continued Gopu. “He’s already made great strides in a short amount of time and will play a critical role in shaping the continued growth of our electric and industrial business. Would I recommend BIC Recruiting? Without hesitation, yes!”

Donaldson was also pleased with BIC Recruiting’s efforts in this process. “The experience was streamlined, informative and simple — and it happened fast,” he said. “The BIC team told me where to be and when. They approached me and I was immediately interested. It was an overall seamless experience and has been a smooth transition into my new role.”
