An institutional sporting goods company helps athletes compete with cutting-edge technology and advancements.
Our client needed new leadership for a new era of their business. They were looking for a COO to help improve their operations, but then quickly needed a CEO who knew their way around the sporting goods industry.
While operating with lean budgets, focusing as much budget on their missions as possible, both clients needed seasoned professionals with helping personalities. Finding high-impact talent that connected with the missions would be key.
#twiceasnice rolled with the punches. We put a pause on the original COO search to find a CEO. After replacing the client’s CFO in a previous search, we knew exactly what the client needed and who they wanted to help rebound their business. By building a relationship with all candidates, it helped #twiceasnice understand the personalities in place and who would mix well with other c-suite roles.
#twiceasnice hustled and placed a CEO in just 36 days. In a buzzer-beater, we submitted the winning COO candidate 24 days into the search. The candidate and the new CEO hit it off instantly. And, 53 days later we had a signed offer and a very happy client!
We help our clients save money and hire better with our custom-built searches, 9.9% fee, and 18-month guarantee. If you need to find a partner to work on your searches, contact us. Or, read more recruiting case studies.
