ToolsGroup – Software Development Team EMEA

The Client

A global supply chain planning software provider focused on the retail and industrial manufacturing sectors.

The Challenge:

They brought a new CTO on board who enlisted us for support on a large transformation project he led, designed to transition the business into a full cloud-based set up. They needed a strong software development leader who could carry the weight of the project across the whole of Europe and was equipped with the skills to manage people through the change successfully.

The Solution:

The Gillespie Manners specialist supply chain software team utilised our a unique headhunting methodology to successfully place a European Director of Software Development. The team immediately began supporting the new hire to grow his own team, ultimately placing 4 technical professionals including a QA Architect, QA Functional Engineer and a Front End Developer within the first 2 months of the Directors start date.


“I have worked with Andrei in both sides of the recruitment process, as hiring manager and as candidate. Andrei is able to work with very little guidance and gets excellent results, providing a good number of high quality candidates matching the company needs. On the other side Andrei is keeping candidates engaged and well informed, increasing in meaningful way the success chances. I can only recommend him for working on any position!”

– Juan Oñoro Masso, Director of Software Engineering
