This was a newly created role with a lot of internal visibility and candidates had to get the “buy-in” from all members of a very diverse senior leadership team. We needed to find someone with professional services experience and expertise in talent management who was also an exact culture fit. The level of the role was not yet determined so we had to find candidates who could navigate a fluid search process and an ever-changing landscape.
We presented a slate of qualified candidates across a broad range of experience. After interviewing several candidates, we helped our client identify “the one” – someone who was less experienced than they were initially thinking, but who was the perfect culture fit and who received a unanimous “yes” from the leadership team.
