Coty - Met Next Head of E-Commerce Germany in 18 Days

LS International’s candidate grew their e-commerce business in Germany >100%.  

Coty had their internal talent team looking for a Head of E-commerce for their consumer division in Germany for 2 months. They hadn’t been able to find the right fit for their specific needs. At that time I connected with their Sales Director, Mario Kirchner who asked me if I knew any talented e-commerce individuals as we are specialists in the function. At that point we went out to the market and found a candidate which was able to grow their e-commerce business by >100%. 

Of course this individual still needed to meet various other stakeholders, but after this process, an offer was accepted 42 days later. Mario only had to meet one candidate which LS International submitted and spent just about 3 hours of his time. 

State 1: Coty searched for 2 months without success 
State 2: Met a top performing candidate                               
Time Frame: 18 Days
