Erevena proved an ideal partner in helping us with our search for a CMO who capable of taking our whole business up a level or two; their approach to the search was rigorous, wide-ranging, strategic and involved just the right amount of dialogue; we were able to build relationships with a number of excellent candidates, and in the course of the process were able to refine and gain clarity and conviction around the perfect profile. We’ve been thrilled with the result!
Erevena has been a trusted adviser and partner to Nutmeg for a number of years on senior level appointments. Maria, Sam and team have always gone the extra mile to understand our needs, help us to understand the landscape and various trade-offs we can make, and then present a number of high-quality candidates. The search for our first CCO was no exception and we were delighted to find Lisa who was a brilliant fit to our brief, and who has settled well into Nutmeg!
We are excited about welcoming Vinay to the Pipedrive team as we look to drive the next phase of our growth journey. Erevena helped us hire an outstanding candidate and showed great tenacity in their pursuit of fulfilling a demanding brief.
Erevena played a pivotal role in helping us take our business to the next level. From start to finish, they were very strategic in how they approached the search, built relationships with our team and candidates, and categorized candidate profiles. We were given a fantastic pipeline to filter and refine, and I’m thrilled by our result.
Building a successful start-up is one thing, scaling it is another. So, finding a world class CTO was a pivotal step in strengthening the leadership team we need. Erevena’s review of the candidate market was excellent, and key in helping us define the role and recognise the trade-offs in finding the perfect candidate. The search was not without its challenges and especially as we worked through a strong final shortlist, but Erevena‘s calm counsel, preparedness to challenge our thinking, and attentive managing of stakeholders was key.
Working the team at Erevena was refreshing. Not only do they have a deep understanding of the tech market, they worked in partnership with us to understand our needs and delivered against this, managing our expectations brilliantly along the way. I look forward to working with them again.
Erevena was a great partner to us as we launched a search to find a leader to lead our business in a net new region. Not only did they hone in on the right fit of skillset and experience we were looking for, Erevena was a real partner in helping us navigate a new region and how the regional business needs shifted the requirements of our search. In addition, they were with us every step of the search and were just as invested in the success of our search as we were!
The Erevena team pushed for information and discussed potential dream candidates but also potential trade-offs. They set expectations very well at the beginning – very smart. Sam worked like crazy and went beyond the financial rationale. If we were less picky we could have done it sooner, but we are delighted with the end result of relocating Beth from Google, Seattle. They have set the bar very high for other search firms.
The DevicePilot Board recognised that it would take the best to find the best. Jonnie and Kevin at Erevena managed a process which proceeded rapidly and smoothly, despite mid-course corrections as we refined the brief.
I really enjoyed working with the Erevena team. It was a true pleasure, it felt like a partnership, and I could trust them. They were flexible and I really felt they were committed to finding the best person. The process was very structured, the profiles were very clear, their filtering was excellent and they really understood the role. I can only rave about them!
Russ has been a star. He has proved himself through this process, and will be helping Livingbridge fulfil their dreams of the next phase of growth with the business. Needless to say we are very happy and wanted to say thanks for helping get the right person, and I trusted you’d like to know that our recruitment and investment plan worked as we planned.
It was an absolute pleasure working with Joe and the team at Erevena. They have great knowledge of the market, were very responsive during the process and found us an awesome candidate in Mikael. We couldn’t be happier and I would highly recommend them!
Erevena assisted us with two of our most important searches: Head of Sales and Head of Marketing. The team at Erevena were true partners who helped us think through the type of candidates that we wanted to attract, the outreach, the interview process, and gave us strategic advice on how to consider and compare each candidate. It was this strategic discussion and guidance that made Erevena feel like a part of our company – an extension of our leadership team. We always knew where we were in the process and the next steps. The two leadership roles were filled by exceptional candidates who immediately added value to HyperScience. We look forward to working with Erevena again.
The Erevena team was great to work with, very communicative with great demeanor. We were a different type of company for them to recruit for therefore, the challenge was more on getting the right candidate at the compensation package offered (no equity; only LTIP). However they were great at adapting and re-setting as we needed. What I appreciated most was despite the length of time they never appeared frustrated. They were in it to get the job done no matter how long it was going to take!
The brief was to execute a global search for our new CPTO.
The team at Erevena did an excellent job of initially scoping the role in detail, identifying the most important considerations for our operating model and then applying those filters to leading candidates across the globe to provide us with an impressive, targeted shortlist of candidates.
The team were high energy, constructive and flexible. They provided clear and balanced advice throughout the process and we were delighted with the results.
It was a big step for us to bring in new senior executive hires into ustwo, and two at the same time. Not only did we have to find the right skills experience to support the next phase of growth but also individuals who understood both Mills and I, and ustwo’s unique culture to ensure they could get up to speed quickly and make a real difference. Both have been fantastic hires for ustwo Studios.
When we began our CTO search we wanted to be confident we had truly mapped the market. Erevena came recommended to us but we still met a number of firms before selecting them, ultimately being won over by an air of professionalism and quality of network which we felt would accelerate the process.
I’ve worked with a number of headhunters but Erevena’s ability to understand our unique requirements and then pitch the pros and cons of candidates against that was very useful. We actually ended up hiring a team of two that satisfied a very difficult brief – a great result that was professional from start to finish.
It was a pleasure working with the Erevena team to assist with the search of our candidates. They really took the time to understand our requirements and the culture of the organisation to find the right candidate for my CPTO. They were very professional and thorough throughout the whole process from understanding the organisation, to the research of candidates and qualifying those met our stringent criteria to getting that final contract signed.
The Erevena team were exceptional at communicating throughout the whole process and their consultative approach was unique, I would highly recommend them.
Erevena gave us an overview of market options and introduced us to a few CTOs to help crystallise our thinking on the profile. We then launched a full search. We kept a real time view of progress via their candidate portal and after some further benchmarking, we ran three great candidates all the way through our process. Erevena proved invaluable in their support though the final selection and we are delighted with our new CTO who started at Rungway a few weeks ago.
What makes Erevena really stand out for me is the breadth of our relationship, On top of search, they have leveraged their impressive network to support Rungway by making introductions to other start-up founders and potential investors. This has anchored a professional friendship that we very much value. Thank you Erevena!
We engaged Erevena in our search for a top tier CTO. Throughout the search we always felt that they cared deeply about finding the right fit and always took the time to carefully listen to our thoughts. They were thorough and targeted and above all we felt like we could trust them on their word. We’re very happy with where we ended up with Erevena’s help.
I worked with Erevena to secure our Chief of Engineering. I have used many of the big name search firms in the past, but for this role, I can honestly say that they delivered above expectation. Clear from the outset that the team had an extensive contact base of highly credible people from top global talent tech businesses. They know the market well and guided us through (what seemed to us a seamless & “pain-free” process), of a highly credible short list, selection for interview and then final offer stage. As we hired out of the USA, additionally Erevena guided us through moving our executive and his family to the UK, (again with ease). I’d highly recommend Erevena if any company is looking for the “unobtainable talent”
