Retained executive search successful at long-list stage

The situation

The recruitment of a newly created UK & Nordics finance director, reporting to the UK & Nordics managing director of Marcolin, a global eyewear wholesale business.


Our approach

A retained executive search consisting of full market-mapping, market research, interview co-hosting and on-boarding.


Ben was recommended to me by an ex-colleague whom he had placed in her new role. We engaged him through a retained search to help us find a new finance director. From the outset, he and his team understood precisely what we needed. Ben worked responsively and rapidly, creating a long-list from his market-mapping and ultimately put forward some exceptional candidates. From the very first pool, we’ve made an appointment we couldn’t be happier about. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Ben and his team, or in working with them again.
