Recruiters / Headhunters|
If you're a headhunter / recruiter, whether contingent or retained, seeking to
fill a senior marketing role, Rent-A-CMO can help you look better to your
client! If you've been doing this for a while, you know that a search for
a senior marketing executive can take from three to six months, or more, to
fill. During that time, your client often has no one in the role.
That means lost opportunity, and lost profit.
Recommending to your client that
they utilize Rent-A-CMO lets them know that you recognize how important the
senior marketing role is to the company. Utilizing an interim CMO / SVP
Marketing during the search is a win for them and a win for you. We come
in and perform the role just like the permanent hire would. If things need
stabilizing, we do that. If things are fine, we keep them fine. Most
importantly, we pave the road for the new hire, and wrap it in a bow for them.
When they finally start, a two week transition period is normal. For the
first week, we continue in the role while bringing the new hire up to speed.
In week two of the transition, we step back and act as an advisor to the new
Rent-A-CMO often has the ability to have someone in the role within 5
business days or less! Yes, you read that right, 5 business days or
less. Makes you look like a hero.
Here's what Sam Taylor, CEO of Oriental Trading, said about the quality of
our work as Interim SVP of Marketing at Oriental Trading:
“I hired Rick as Interim SVP Marketing for Oriental Company as we launched a
search for a new head of Marketing (which I subsequently filled with a former
colleague of mine with whom I had worked for five years at Lands' End). Rick has
extensive experience in customer database marketing, catalog marketing and
e-Commerce. He is extremely customer-focused and is always looking for ways to
improve business results and drive profitable revenue growth. Rick came into the
role and immediately identified opportunities for us to capture incremental
revenue and profits. He did a great job leading the Marketing and Creative teams
to help them prioritize their efforts and become more productive and effective.
Rick is very detailed oriented and is passionate about direct marketing -- he
has a lot of energy and passion for the business! Rick also worked very well
with the other functional areas and his peers within the company. He is truly
professional and I have retained him at Oriental Trading to help with the onboarding of the new head of Marketing. That transition period is winding down,
and now Rick is looking for his next opportunity. I give Rick my highest
endorsement. His level of database marketing, catalog marketing and e-Commerce
expertise is hard to come by. Rick will quickly add value to any organization he
Rent-A-CMO usually costs the same as the senior person you're placing in the job.
The benefit to your client isn't lower costs, it's improved
profits and continuity by having someone in the role during the
hiring process. In the rare case where our rate is more than your client has
budgeted, we offer part-time interim roles, for example in the office two days a week
and available by phone one day a week. Whatever it takes to make your
Rent-A-CMO allows you, and your client, to take the time necessary to put the
perfect candidate in the role. No reason to rush, be methodical. We've got your
client's (and your) back covered!
If you desire, our referral program can be utilized; however, this requires full
disclosure to your client.
