The Brief

Our brief was to identify and attract a Head of Digital Product.

Our brief was to identify and attract a Head of Digital Product who would transform our client's digital customer experience as part of their evolution from a bricks-and-mortar to multichannel retailer. The Head of Digital Product would have total ownership of the business' digital strategy, both online and in-store. The ideal candidate would need to be commercially-minded and have significant technical expertise, in addition to being a disruptive force, capable of challenging senior stakeholders and driving innovation throughout the business.

The Process

Fortune Hill compiled an extensive target list across a range of sectors.

To identify candidates with this unique blend of skills and expertise, Fortune Hill's research team compiled an extensive list of target companies across a variety of industries including retail, telecommunications, travel and pureplay. We then meticulously mapped out these companies in addition to leveraging our extensive network, generating recommendations, which allowed us to identify the best talent the market had to offer.

The Result

Our approach enabled us to present our client with an eclectic shortlist of exceptional candidates.

We presented an eclectic shortlist of exceptional candidates from some of the UK's leading consumer companies, from which they selected an individual who perfectly suited their requirements. We supported our client to move quickly in order to secure their ideal candidate, who joined them from a high-profile luxury retailer. This individual had the right mix of commercial and technical expertise, as well as the gravitas required to gain support from senior stakeholders in driving digital transformation throughout the business.
