In June 2017, CONSORT Group’s consultants successfully completed the search for the Chief Financial Officer for an Italian company which is part of Italy’s leading healthcare holding. First off, an agreement was reached with the client that we “will not rush things”: it has long been proven that only meticulous work on the project leads to its successful completion and further long-term job tenure of the selected candidate. Despite the limited timeframe, the project was implemented using the Executive Search classic technology (long/short-listing of candidates, multi-stage interviewing, full reference checks, etc.) and managed on time. We were once again convinced (and convinced the client) that the thoroughness and efficiency were fairly compatible!
