Our client, a world-class technology services organization, was experiencing a leadership restructuring in the Information Technology Group and had a critical need for combined talent management services.
The client retained CCI Consulting to conduct an executive search to identify and secure a progressive Information Technology Leader as well as provide Career Transition support to their outgoing IT leader. Within our client’s structure, the IT leader plays an instrumental role in optimizing the partnership of the IT Organization with the business. The client was seeking a dynamic and proven industry professional who would lead the planning and implementation of enterprise information systems, aligning and exploiting technology for the advantage of the organization to lead the digital age. The role needed a visionary who was grounded in state-of-the-art technology; a leader committed to collaborative relationships; a business partner who was passionate about creating pragmatic solutions; and a mentor and coach who inspires others to continually improve, create, and innovate.
After conducting a thorough intake session with the client that identified the experience, competencies, motivation, and cultural fit necessary for success, CCI mapped out a national search strategy. Our research initiative “mapped the market,” identifying companies of similar industry and complexity and individuals whose backgrounds closely aligned with the client’s specifications. A comprehensive outreach campaign followed, which included marketing and networking the opportunity to engage the right candidates. We provided compelling information about the company and opportunity, along with career management guidance. Seriously interested candidates were then carefully assessed against all factors for success to assure they met or exceeded our client’s needs.
Through a collaborative partnership with our client and our internal team’s focused efforts, CCI successfully completed the search within the client’s aggressive hiring timeline. Within a six-week period, the initial slate of candidates was fully vetted and introduced to the client. The hired candidate was a candidate in this initial group. After successfully securing their IT leader, CCI was retained to attract and secure three additional leaders, (VP, Marketing; VP, Commercial Business; and VP, Litigation and Employment Law), all of which had successful outcomes.
