Metapack, a high-growth SaaS provider backed by Index Ventures, needed to find an exceptional leader to rebuild and grow the marketing function, initially across Europe and then on a global basis. Talented Group was selected by Metapack’s Chief Customer Officer and HR team for our knowledge of the ecommerce software arena and our ability to move quickly.
Talented Group built a list of SaaS companies with similar characteristics to Metapack in terms of scale, growth trajectory, geographic footprint and funding. We approached the marketing leadership in each of these companies talking the individuals through the Metapack story and proposition. We conducted numerous conversations which resulted in 12 face to face interviews and soon after a strong shortlist of 6 candidates.
Working in a collaborative and effective manner with the hiring manager and Metapack’s HR Director, Talented Group reached the shortlist stage of the process within 5 weeks. Metapack was able to present an offer, which was duly accepted, to the preferred candidate within a 7 week timeframe. Talented Group has since begun work on two other retained search assignments with Metapack.
