Entire Board of Directors successfully placed...
Client Name: Dreams
We were approached by the owner of Dreams PLC when the company was at £60 million turnover. We identified and recruited individuals from leading competitors and hand picked Directors for each board function. This led to the turnover increasing to £300 million and sale of the business in excess of £220 million for the owner.
Entrepeneur and owner of Dreams PLC, Mr Mike Clare, came to us because he was frustrated with all the recruitment providers he had used in the past. Mike needed to find a way to attract the top talent the business required to take it onto its next level of growth. Dreams wanted to be seen as an employer of choice and raise their profile in the industry to help generate a healthy, ongoing pool of talent.
We first met with Dreams to get a clear idea about their required skill sets and cultural fit. We were set the task of delivering the candidates in a timely manner.
We produced a targeted longlist of leading candidates with industry experience across each function.
Our ability to then promote the opportunity and long term reasons as to why the candidates should engage with the brand, meant that a high calibre shortlist was delivered on time and on budget.
By working with us, Dreams PLC secured an entire main and operating board of Directors, who between them increased the turnover from £60 to £300 million.
This led to a successful exit of the owners, propelling them into the top 300 rich list.
