The Brief

Our brief was to appoint a Global Digital Director to drive online expansion and take our client to the cusp of online retail.

The client had a strong existing eCommerce proposition but wanted to pull away from the competition and offer an exceptionally personalised experience for all their online shoppers. To achieve this they needed to hire a thought leader who could also lead all trading and marketing activity.

The Process

We adopted a twin approach to ensure the digital landscape was fully mapped.

Firstly we utilised out extensive senior network in the digital space. Secondly our research team conducted a root and branch mapping exercise to ensure all bases were covered. This dual approach generated an exhaustive target list which spanned the retail, technology, FMCG and consulting sectors across Europe and North America.

The Result

The client was able to hire one of the most high profile digital directors in the world.

The client was presented with a shortlist of 8 world class individuals, who between them managed over £20billion worth of revenue online annually. Our client selected their ideal candidate and Fortune Hill then managed the complex offer process, which involved an aggressive counter offer and relocation from North America.
