Chief Executive Officer
Our client is a Canadian lighting solutions startup that developed an award winning, cost saving green technology. Ready to bring their product to market nationally and worldwide, they were looking for a new CEO with an engineering background as well as extensive B2B sales and marketing experience. The CEO would serve as the primary operations executive of the business, responsible for the efficient performance of the business as well as leading the Executive Team, supporting the Board and cultivating positive stakeholder relations. Furthermore, they would be charged with building the sales distribution channel of the business in a rapid and cost-effective manner. As such, the hired candidate would have to demonstrate advanced managerial capabilities and interpersonal skills.
We went to market in search of a business leader with both industry specific and startup experience. Through our contacts in clean technology, we were able to identify and target individuals who fit the criteria outlined by our client. Specifically, we were looking for leaders with knowledge of electrical lighting and clean technology as well as demonstrated competence in general management.
We were successful in finding an exceptional individual who demonstrated the skills, experience, leadership talent and behavioural fit required by our client and the investor group. The new hire had a track record of success in managing start up businesses as well as experience in B2B sales and marketing of engineered products. Ultimately the new CEO was able to pull the team together and evolve and augment it to support the growth of the business.
