MRINetwork Tackles Executive Search in Oracle Enterprise Technologies

(Hartford, CT) – Strategic Ventures announced it is now an affiliate of MRINetwork®, one of the largest search and recruitment organizations in the world.  Prior to joining MRINetwork, Strategic Ventures has been in operation for over 13 years. Led by owner and managing director, Peter Duflo, the firm specializes in executive search of Oracle-centric, information technology executives and resources, on both a permanent and interim basis, to drive business transformation, IT strategy, migrations, business intelligence, analytics, big data, social media, managed services and migrations to cloud-based systems. Strategic Ventures’ client roster includes multinational corporations, global consultancies, mid-cap and emerging growth companies, both throughout the U.S. and internationally. 

“Mr. Duflo brings to MRINetwork a wealth of knowledge regarding executive search in the Oracle enterprise industry,” says Stuart Batchelor, interim president of MRINetwork. “His proven expertise in this space will be a great asset to both our organization and to his clients, in helping them deal with today’s pressing issues of attracting and retaining employees and customers.”

Prior to joining MRINetwork, Duflo acquired 30 years of operational leadership experience in the enterprise applications consulting industry. During that time, he held senior-level roles within multiple ERP consultancies, an ERP-centric M&A advisory firm and finally as managing director of Strategic Ventures.  During the course of his career, Duflo has cultivated a network of proven, high-performance, industry leaders with extensive consulting backgrounds from the Big 5 Global IT companies, Forbes Global 2000 and the Fortune 500.

Duflo notes that for the first time in five years, organizations are competing for talent. “The balance of power is shifting, and the best candidates are exerting more control,” he says. “Senior executives with deep experience in Oracle enterprise systems are in increasingly short supply due to global economic growth, and people feel more comfortable changing jobs now. We help clients build top performing in-house teams by identifying the high performance players in the marketplace.  We help these industry leaders advance their careers by putting them in CIO, CTO, VP, director and manager-level roles where they can make the greatest contributions to their employers.  Our work allows them to fully leverage their Oracle Technology experience, their strategic thinking, passion and character to quickly advance the success of their new teams.”

Based in Connecticut, Duflo is a graduate of LeMoyne College, Syracuse, NY, where he earned degrees in business, economics and computer science.  Review candidate and client recommendations for Peter and Strategic Ventures in his LinkedIn profile.
