Global mining company hires great communicator
In the process of purchasing a competitor, this global mining/resource leader with large reserves and market capitalization needed to identify a strong communications leader who could manage the sensitive nature of the merger. Mandrake started a discreet and confidential search for a Senior Vice President of Communications and Public Relations. A careful vetting of candidates equipped with superior organizational, interpersonal, and communications skills led to placement of a world-class executive leader.
Time sensitivity due to the proposed acquisition shortened the timeline of the hire. Mandrake quickly put forward top notch candidates with experience in public companies, investor relations, and global portfolios. They also wanted a hands-on leader who could manage media kits, proposals, communications strategies, press releases, media advisories, and crisis management.
The Mandrake team pulled out all the stops, drawing on both its national and international network of candidates and consultants to find qualified candidates—all in a highly accelerated timeline.
After meeting with the Director of Human resources, we identified the targeted list of potential candidates. Due to the sensitive nature of the acquisition, we screened and presented all the candidates in strict confidence. Subsequent to the signing of a non-disclosure agreement the short-listed candidates were interviewed by the client. After a thorough global search, we identified the candidate with leadership, expertise, and experience to succeed.
