Testimonial for a CEO in the IT Sector

High Growth Recruitment Testimonial

As Chairman, I was looking, in 2010, to recruit a high calibre, ambitious and talented Chief Executive. Substantial additional funds were to be invested in Cloud 9, and I needed someone to drive growth - organically and through acquisition.

I was finding it very difficult to source the right type of person and was attracted by High Growth’s slightly unconventional approach.

The “Selection Day” worked far better than I had anticipated. The day was revealing and the process thorough; the success of the exhaustive selection process was in large part due to Richard’s very considerable personal commitment. Suffice it to say that Cloud 9 recruited exactly the type of person I was looking for.

I truly believe that we would not have achieved this result through any other process.

Case studies

Sales Director for an industrial equipment company £65m turnover

The UK MD of this influential European manufacturer asked High Growth to recruit a replacement SD following the dismissal of the previous SD for performance and cultural reasons. It was very important to engage a top class SD who fitted the culture and ethos of the business and the client chose to use HG following an excellent experience 12 months earlier when a senior BDM had been hired.

A high calibre field of candidates was stretched with relevant challenges in a Selection Day environment and the first choice candidate accepted the job. The MD praised High Growth for the ‘availability of suitable candidates’ and noted that the ‘Selection Day makes all the difference’. The SD is still in post 4 years later and has taken on additional responsibilities following a re-structure and the MD’s departure.

Operations Director (initially Manager) for a fine arts business £5+m turnover

High Growth was referred to the MD of this London, family-owned and managed business at a time when the shareholders were considering the introduction of external professional management. After detailed discussions, we prepared the job description for the Operations Manager, director designate, and then, with a really creative advert, attracted a large pool of candidates.

The key requirements for a competent, credible and culturally aware senior manager with a record of achieving quality and on time delivery were met by an experienced Formula 1 Race Engineer who very successfully transferred sectors and raised the standards to previously unknown levels. Once in post, High Growth’s coaching support helped him deal with the inevitable new challenges.High Growth was also retained to engage a Sales Director and, subsequently, a Project Manager.
