As a cutting-edge VC backed organisation entering scale-up phase, IriusRisk needed a Chief Revenue Officer based in the UK, with experience of EMEA & North America. Having engaged Michael Page who missed the brief, six weeks had been wasted and as such they quickly needed access to the right talent pool.


Introduced to the CEO by their lead VC, we first invested the time necessary to understand the brief in full. Once clear, we reacted by immediately approaching the executives who have the domain and experience level needed and who were interested in an early stage scale-up opportunity.

Recognition One was extremely responsive and sensitive to our hiring requirements. What most impressed me was the detailed initial call to understand our needs… the candidates they introduced fit our criteria very well and were presented quickly
Stephen de Vries, CEO & Founder, IriusRisk


Within days of our first conversation with the CEO, we introduced two candidates who both fit the brief exactly and aced the first stage interview. Due to our deep working relationship with IriusRisk and research, we were able to exhaustively determine which of these candidates would be the best fit culturally. Ultimately, a fantastic Chief Revenue Officer was hired and was up and running within 5 weeks of taking on the brief.
