The Company

High growth AIM-listed software and professional services group.  Extremely diverse business with multiple offices across the UK and Europe.

The Challenge

The Board wished to appoint a Group CTO; their first CTO within the Group.  This position would be business critical in shaping strategy, driving innovation, growing revenue, and realising synergies.

Our Solution

As an experienced and specialist search firm for the Technology disciplines within the Tech Sectors, Kinetech had the advantage of being able to research rapidly and build a target list of potential candidates, offering the exposure and experience the Company needed.

Using our rigorous search methodology, we identified candidates across the Tech and Professional Services Sectors.  Our thorough screening process resulted in a short list of excellent options for the Board to interview.  Two of these candidates made it through to the final interview stage with the CEO, who ultimately appointed an excellent individual.  The other candidate in the final stage process was offered a project opportunity.

The hire was made within the defined timeline.

Bringing the right people together

The successful candidate displayed the right balance of diverse business and industry experience, combined with real leadership within innovation.  And importantly, was the right cultural fit for both the Board and other key stakeholders.

“Annette and I met whilst she was leading an executive search for a Group CTO role, in which I was the successful candidate. Throughout the process, Annette’s communication and engagement was superb. Annette took time to understand my skills, background, motivations and most importantly me as an individual. This ensured that both the hiring organisation and I were suitably aligned all the way along and reassured me that Annette had both of our best interests at heart. Whilst in my notice period Annette has checked in on various occasions to ensure that I had everything I needed. I would highly recommend Annette for any similar searches.”
