Wattpad, a lifestyle publication, needed a US Head of Sales to drive Revenue growth in a remote role. The challenge of identifying an individual contributor Sales Director who could also build out and lead the US Sales team made this challenging for a brand that wasn’t a household name in the US.
We kicked off the search by identifying a mix of multiple backgrounds to headhunt and within 10 days we had 3 varied but ideal candidates to interview. We quickly narrowed the pool to 2 finalists who were 100% aligned and experienced to lead the growth of the business in the US.
The interview process took 3+ weeks and we settled in on the perfect leading candidate that we hired within 45 days from beginning the search. This Sales Director has been an extremely valuable and highly-productive addition to the team, consistently exceeding goals and expectations over the first 2.5 years of her tenure @ Wattpad.
