The Brief

Our brief was to appoint a first-class CIO to play an integral role in fulfilling the client's core objective to become ‘the partner for the multi-channel world.’

Our client was based in a challenging location, was underperforming commercially and had legacy systems issues which hinder their delivery of a positive customer experience. A new CIO was required to lead the formulation and execution of the strategic change programme to develop a best-in-class customer interface and highly efficient, low cost operational systems.

The Process

Fortune Hill formulated a list of businesses considered to have successfully gone through a similar transition and identified CIOs and IT Directors who were potential candidates for this appointment.

Our team built a very compelling story around the client's ambition to excite candidates, and this, coupled with a rigorous assessment process, enabled us to draw up a strong shortlist of candidates who had the right skills, experience and outlook for this client's requirements.

The Result

Following an extensive search, we were able to appoint a very highly regarded and well experienced CIO who had considerable experience in leading change.

The candidate successfully joined our client's business and is considered to have delivered significant value for the client. Fortune Hill has since been retained on two further occasions based on feedback from the CEO and senior leaders in the business.

"I would have no hesitation in recommending Joel to anyone looking to recruit high-quality leaders, and to any prospective candidates searching for the right home for their skills." Successful Candidate
