Request Services
Headhunt Direct and targeted candidate approach
Unique Rare, specialist role
Growth Management team expansion

The Project

  • High-growth diagnostic company expanding within the Nordics and BeNeLux region.
  • Requirement for a General Manager as an additional line in the management structure.
  • GM to drive sales and strategy as well as liaise between the VP of Northern Europe and the growing team of sales managers.
  • Highly unusual project requiring an individual with both surgery and molecular diagnostics background as well as experience managing operations in both the Nordics and BeNeLux regions.

Our Recommendation

  • Specialist search team to carry out a specific industry headhunt at competitor companies.
  • Not only conduct the screening of candidates sourced by Medexec but also screen and interview the internal candidate (already identified) in order to uphold best practice and maintain a consistent process on behalf of the company.

Results Delivered

Medexec were able to identify 3 suitable profiles matching the criteria, despite their being only a small pool of candidates, one of which was appointed due to their leadership experience and the specific and rare market experience in both surgery and diagnostics. We continued to provide support with negotiations and the onboarding of the successful candidate.
