International CEO search for medicinal cannabis company

Case study

Scope of work

Our team were approached by the chairman of a medicinal cannabis specialist company to form a partnership as their incumbent CEO was due to depart. They agreed to partner with us for the international search for their next CEO, as we have a very successful track record at C-level in the medicinal cannabis sector.

The solution

Within one week we had both a long and shortlist identified and by week two, interviews were arranged for the top 5 candidates. After this, the final two were selected and taken forward to final interview. Once their background checks had been completed, the board unanimously decided on a highly experienced Oxford University graduate and former chief business officer of a large pharmaceutical company in Australia and the UK.

The outcome

The new CEO successfully joined the company and now has the task of leading them through to commercialisation and success.

We are proud to have supported this company with their crucial hire and look forward to a continued relationship with them.
