Bringing key competence into e-commerce


Reinforcing the competence in international e-commerce business

Client Situation

One of Europe’s largest e-commerce businesses was in need of a new group CEO, ready to take the company through the next growth phase. Our client found themselves in a critical situation with extremely little time at their disposal.



Through a comprehensive business analysis combined with a strong team we solved our clients urgent situation in as little as 10 weeks, which is extremely fast for such a senior position. We used our extensive international network and a strong desktop search team to scan the European e-commerce market. This resulted in a shortlist of some of the strongest e-commerce profiles in Europe.


An in-depth psychometric assessment was conducted in order to ensure the most valid selection of top candidates. In order to predict future success for the candidate in the specific role and business environment, we carefully assessed the candidates’ competences, personality traits and motivation in relation to the findings from the business analysis. We gave our client clear recommendations on each candidate in connection with the final decision.


The assignment was successfully completed within 10 weeks from the first meeting with the client, resulting in top rating in our CSI evaluation.
A very motivated leader signed, which resulted in a positive response both internally and externally.
Three very strong candidates were in the process until the final round.

“The best search experience we have been through with insightful analysis of our business. Fast, accurate and with very good candidates matching our needs. Our task became rather difficult as we ended up having to choose between several excellent candidates.”
