Advisory Talent

If you have clear, short-medium-term commercial goals for new market expansion, business wins or account development, hiring an advisor or consultant on a part-time basis will enable you to unlock valuable insights and connections. 

Gillespie Manners has helped high-growth businesses to enter new markets and win national key accounts through the strategic identification and placement of part-time, short-term advisory consultants and commercial advisors. 

Our network of passive talent is unmatched, and our unique headhunting methodology proactively identifies candidates who align directly with your business needs and goals. 

Case Study: Hiring a Commercial Advisor to Gain Entry into a New Market

Dexory captures real-time insights of warehouse operations using fully autonomous robots and Artificial Intelligence. The business had recently raised a seed funding round of circa $6 million and identified an opportunity to aim their solution at warehouses. This strategic move would shift their focus into the supply chain market. However, the founders had never worked in this industry and so required the support of a professional with first-hand experience of the industry to guide them through the transition and support their sales strategy. As an early-stage startup, they weren’t in the position to invest in a full-time, permanent hire.

They enlisted Gillespie Manners to source an advisory hire with a commercial background and hands-on supply chain experience. Their goal was to utilise their insights, network and sales acumen to formulate a plan of action to enter the new market.

The team of specialist Executive Search Consultants at Gillespie Manners conducted thorough research and presented a list of potential candidates to the client to ascertain the ideal candidate profile. They proactively headhunted the list and successfully placed a candidate.

The advisory hire helped the business build its sales strategy, opened up a number of opportunities and established a sales team from the ground up. Since hiring the advisor on a part-time basis, the business has gone on to raise $19 million in series A funding and secured several global customers.

“I highly recommend Gillespie Manners to any tech company scaling their operations. They offer a seamless experience, provide access to a remarkable pipeline of high-caliber candidates, and are incredibly easy to work with. Steve’s contribution as an advisor was instrumental in refining our product offering and optimising our go-to-market strategy.”
