The Client: A global leader in algorithmic customer engagement, powering digital-first strategies for retailers and brands.
The Challenge: Following a merger and acquisition restructure in their EMEA region, the business needed to bring in senior talent with market specific expertise to support revenue growth for the region.
The Solution: The specialist retail technology practice at Gillespie Manners conducted a multi-hire search. They leveraged an expansive network of passive talent and the unique Gillespie Manners headhunting methodology to source a shortlist of candidates.
A VP of Europe, Global Solutions Consultant (Pre-sales) and Customer Success Manager were all placed on time and within budget, enabling the businesses European territory to scale and thrive at pace.
The next steps – Placing a CRO
Following the success of this talent acquisition project, Agronomy enlisted us to support on a search for their Chief Revenue Officer as part of their global expansion strategy. The search was confidential, which meant they were unable to rely on their own network for candidates. We placed an experienced and commercially adept CRO within just 16 weeks, which far exceeds the standard time for a C-Suite position.
“Throughout the process Thomas was extremely professional and efficient, keeping a high level of communication which meant that discussions with all parties were as smooth as possible.
I would highly recommend Thomas as a recruiter and would happily work with him again in the future.”
