Director of Sales
Top 10 Asset Servicing Firm, NYC
Director of Sales, NYC, reporting to the Global Head of Sales
- Pivotal role, replacing incumbent who had been relocated.
- Client had spent three months searching their own networks while simultaneously using two generalist recruitment agencies. No meaningful meetings resulted and this initial approach was deemed by the client as ‘not a good use of our time’ – speed was now of the essence.
- Select’s brief was to identify, qualify and approach highly successful sales professionals in the asset servicing space and present a shortlist of 3-5 candidates to the CEO within 4-6 weeks.
- Tight timeline.
- Unusual combination of skills and experience.
Through discreet conversations with senior people locally and in NY, we identified the the most successful and highly regarded sales people.
An offer was accepted 7 weeks after we were engaged on the assignment.
