As a trusted partner, we truly understand the impact we can make alongside a senior hire and how difficult it can be for any Founder, CEO or Leader to relinquish control or finance to a search firm. It is important to us, we care and believe in a true partnership from the outset.
OUR VENTURE CAPITAL PARTNERS TRUST US TO RECRUIT THEIR MOST CRUCIAL HIRES – BECAUSE WE DO NOT DISAPPEAR ONCE THE DEAL IS DONE.
What makes EO different?
We use a blend of technology, post placement support and cultural matching to help your business attract, assess and assimilate the leaders that will make your portfolio companies win.
Recent studies show that as many as 80% of start up companies never manage to raise a Series C funding round and 97% never achieve an exit or flotation.
Average leaders are simply not up to the task of delivering growth.
At EO we de-risk this minefield through smart recruitment and onboarding techniques that utilise, technology, science and advanced human craft.
It works - 96% of our placements are still thriving and in post after 12 months verses an industry average of just over 60% - our own business has doubled in size in the last 4 years.
You know your portfolio better than anyone and which type of leaders are required to overcome growth challenges at each stage – we are the search partner that helps you capture and nurture them..
Executive Discovery ® – our 200k candidates, large social community and team of 85 people split across 5 countries allow us to build market maps and attract top talent into our processes quickly.
Executive Intro ® – We do everything that your current headhunting partner does before presenting our shortlisted clients via our cloud Executive Intro platform. On the platform you will see candidate video’s, behavioural testing and the shortlisted applicants answers to your 3 killer questions.
Executive Impact ® - We deploy executives coaches as standard to work with you, the portfolio company board and the placed executive on accelerating their effectiveness – it’s about ROI.
We help Founders and Venture Capitalists attract quality leadership that can fall into 4 clear categories:
Builders – Talented executives who can lay the foundations for scale for tomorrow whilst optimising and improving the business today. Often COO’s, Heads of Operations or GM/MD.
Growers – Missionaries who take the proposition to market, land and expand in new territories and supercharge your sales strategies. Typically CCO’s, CRO’s, CMO’s and VP of Sales or Sales Enablement.
Techies – Those who love the product and understand the technical growth roadmap. They set the strategy, establish the tech culture and advise non-technical Founders on the development methodology. We know the best CTO’s, VP Engineering and Head of Product candidates in this space.
Makers – The experienced senior executives who make it happen, raise the finance, input governance and drive confidence both internally and externally. Chairperson, CFO’s, Legal Specialist, Finance Directors and NED's.
