“To deliver on our business growth and internationalisation strategy over recent years it has been essential that I have the right leadership team in place. sh gillamor stephens have been fundamental in supporting me achieve this goal. They have developed a great understanding of KCS; are able to very effectively represent us and have proven excellent at managing the search process to hire key individuals into our business. The executives we have recruited are making a positive impact on KCS and most importantly on our ability to make the difference for our customers.”
CEO, Kerridge Commercial Systems
“I needed to be certain that our existing management team (including myself) have the requisite core competencies to scale as we grow. The assessment programme designed and implemented by Gillamor Stephens and their business psychologist has been instrumental in getting the answers to those questions. Two of the senior team recognised that the journey ahead would be too difficult for them, and in all cases I have been able to get a more analytical understanding of the current team’s strengths, weaknesses and development needs. It’s now much easier to identify who is the best fit for each role in the new management structure, as well as identifying gaps in the current leadership. It is critical that a high performing team is in place moving forward in order for Causeway to deliver on our growth ambitions and it has also been great to work with Gillamor Stephens to supplement the team with external hires, recently hiring a CMO, a CTO, a VP Support, two Sales Directors and a Professional Services Director. The addition of the people Gillamor Stephens are hiring for Causeway is as instrumental to our success as the strategy. We now have those three essential elements; a good strategy, access to significant finance, and great people”.
