Executive Recruitment Case Studies
For more than four decades, we have been helping the world’s leading organizations to attract the very best executive talent. Some examples of our most recent assignments are provided below.
Global IT company.
A $100 billion+ Fortune 500 company needed a partner that could provide executive-level search services on a truly global scale. Our solution was to establish a team of more than 50 consultants worldwide, supporting the Americas, EMEA and APJ. We have secured 133 successful director-level engagements in three years, and are proactively managing talent pipelines to meet current and future needs.
Multinational banking and financial services business.
We helped one of the largest U.S. banks to significantly expand its corporate and transaction banking capabilities in the Asia Pacific region. Working closely with their global head of corporate banking and GTS, and with a team of consultants working across ever part of the region, we successfully delivered 57 hires, including much of the senior management team. Under the new leadership, the businesses have achieved dramatic growth: GTS revenues, for example, have jumped from $180 million to $500 million in the two years since the new regional head was appointed.
Leading personal care company.
This global manufacturer and marketer of skincare, makeup, fragrance and hair care products was going through major organizational change. In particular, they were looking to transition their supply chain focus away from “always having product on the shelf” to instead adopting lean procedures across the globe. Through a series of transformational hires, we helped revolutionize the supply chain, which is now recognized as a critical part of company performance.
