We are delighted to share some of the recent success stories achieved by our team of expert executive recruiting consultants.
Case 1: General Manager
A US skin care brand with established distribution in Asia-Pacific was facing rapid expansion. A general manager was sought to oversee the company’s Asia-Pacific sales and marketing operations.
Challenge: This demanding role required experience managing large-scale retail franchisees, proven business development acumen, and delivering on restricted marketing budgets.
Solution: We looked to corporations with similar business models and equal retail strength across the region. A general manager was identified and successfully headhunted from a European retail brand.
Case 2: Regional Security Director
A European telecommunication carrier provider required a new regional security director. The director would develop the company’s security strategy across the business, including physical, information, risk management, external and internal investigations, and more.
Challenge: Once clearly defined, this role required unique experience: a mixture of law enforcement, military, and commercial knowledge, and experience within a technology firm was a must.
Solution: Talent Blue presented the opportunity to a unique candidate in our network: a former US military director-level professional working in a global technology firm. The prospect accepted the role as regional head of security.
Case 3: Head of Sales
A number one US consumer goods brand sought a head of sales to lead its Hong Kong team.
Challenge: The position was a long-standing vacancy due to a perceived lack of available talent.
Solution: Talent Blue worked to identify a sales director from an aligned consumer brand. Together with the client, we crafted a relocation opportunity that appealed to the candidate and secured their contract.
Case 4: Regional Account Team Leader
A US communication technology firm sought a regional account team head to manage and lead the sales and accounts service division, with a specific focus on their stable of Fortune 500 clients.
Challenge: This senior role required solid technology or telecommunication equipment knowledge, coupled with equally strong sales and technical consulting skills – not a common combination.
Solution: Talent Blue’s business consultants went directly to proven candidates in our network from large software, technology and carrier firms. After an in-depth competency assessment, we identified an up-and-coming executive from a global software vendor with excellent business development skills, as well as technology proficiency. This management candidate successfully took on the challenge as a well-deserved career progression.
We look forward to many more successful partnerships. Talent Blue welcomes enquiries from talent acquisition teams and future business leaders across the region. You may reach our team here.
