Another in our occasional features highlighting the proactive marketing work that we are carrying out. Today’s featured candidate is someone who has used our services to recruit at the last two companies at which he was Managing Director, stretching back nearly ten years.
He is MBA qualified from Cranfield, with a first class honours degree in Mechanical Engineering and a MPhil from Cambridge University; he is also a member of the Chartered Institute of Marketing. After a 30 year career of unparalleled success, he has taken early retirement and is now seeking to offer his experience in a non-executive capacity as an addition to his non-commercial interests.
He has a wide range of experience in blue chip, private and VC backed businesses, and an impressive track record of team building, change management and international business development. His international experience has covered sourcing and manufacture in China, and sales across mainland Europe, Japan and the US.
His key skills are the ability to increase sales, through both increased focus, new products and expanding markets, improving profitability through efficiencies and reducing costs, and streamlining and rationalising businesses to improve effectiveness. As a NED, he would be looking to work with businesses on a couple of days per month basis, but the opportunity to tap into his wealth of knowledge should not be passed over.
