Anthony Petitti is following in his father's footsteps at executive recruiting firm Pinnacle Search Partners LLC.
His father Richard has more than 30 years of recruiting experience in the plastics industry. Anthony joined Sandy Springs, Ga.-based Pinnacle in October as an executive search associate.
In a news release, officials with Pinnacle said that Richard Petitti specializes in filling executive, marketing, and sales roles in commodity and engineered resins and composites. Pinnacle's previous plastics clients include materials firms BASF SE and RTP Co.
With Pinnacle, Anthony Petitti mainly is responsible for identifying and qualifying talent on a national basis, as well as collaborating with senior consultants — including his father — on retained executive searches and business development.
"I'm very proud to have Anthony on board," Richard Petitti said in the release. "I'm showing him the ropes and grooming him for future success in thermoplastics. I love what I do, and especially now because I get to share it with my son. We're already off to a great start."
Anthony Petitti is a graduate of the University of South Carolina who previously worked in player development for the Atlanta Braves and Boston Red Sox of Major League Baseball.
Pinnacle was founded in 2009. In addition to plastics, the firm does executive searches for building products, business services and other industries.
