"With their extensive market knowledge and commercial acumen, Endaba have delivered consistently high results"
Group Product Director, Next plc
RETAIL - ETAM
We placed a CEO in The Etam Group, a family-run Dutch fashion retail brand and she took the company from an €11m loss to €9m profit within two years.
The company was in serious decline with profits having fallen from €20m to €11m in four years. There was also a lack of a successful recruitment strategy, as new recruits just weren’t staying put.
Endaba carried out market intelligence over a two-month period within the European market, analysing similar businesses to find and track potential CEO and MD candidates. We identified key potential candidates and presented a shortlist of five strong options for interview.
A new CEO was recruited within five weeks, who went on to deliver fast and effective business strategies that saw a return to profit within her first year. Endaba was then asked to fill a further four senior executive positions over the following six months. The Chairman at the time complimented Endaba for being the first company to take the time to truly understand the business challenge and its culture, and deliver effective results.
"Having engaged Endaba for over 10 search assignments over the years, I have come to rely on their deep understanding of culture and trust issues to find the perfect match of candidate, role and enterprise. They propose candidates you would not think of in a traditional headhunting way, but experience has taught me the value of their unique approach"
