How we helped
We were initially contacted by the VP, Sales EMEA having not hired successfully via their existing recruiters. We were subsequently introduced to the VP, Global Sales who lead the process.
The brief was clear and we commenced with a search for a proven Marketing Technology sales person with a successful track record of closing SaaS deals with eCommerce and Digital contacts within Retailers.
There were specific key traits beyond this, such as the ability to manage a large pipeline of deals at one time, as well as the ability to offer clear direction to a US based Demand Generation team, who only have limited territory knowledge.
All shortlisted candidates were progressed to interview with the client. Two demonstrated great credentials the role and were progressed through to final stages. Ultimately, one candidate shone through and was offered the position.
In total, this was a six-stage process, involving US-based stakeholders, as well as the CEO and CFO. The assignment was successfully concluded and an appointment was made in under five weeks.
