Digi – Managing Director UK

The Client and Challenge:

An industry leading provider of in-store retail technology solutions.

The business identified the need for a new Managing Director with strong market expertise, a commercial mindset and experience with business transformation.

Having undertaken their own search, the business had been unable to find candidates who stood up to their stringent requirements. They engaged Gillespie Mannners to expand the reach of their talent search.  

The Solution:

Specialist from the Retail Technology Practice were able to go thoroughly understand the clients requirements, looking beyond ‘obvious’ choices, reaching candidates who would be able to bring a deeper knowledge, gravitas and range of experience than the client had been able to produce through their own network and search.

The successful hire had a varied background, with retail industry experience as well as valuable non-market related roles which provided them with strong commercial and operational awareness.

Since the placement, the business has experienced strong year on year growth.
