New Country Placement for Hyper-growth Startup

River were retained to identify and hire a Country Head - France for Holidu, a Series C start-up and one of the world’s fastest growing travel companies. The position would be based in Marseille and be responsible for opening and expanding the business in France, a new market for Holidu.

The position was challenging because of the limited talent pool in the Marseille Region meaning that River had to expand their search to include bi-lingual French and English speakers who would be willing to re-locate to Marseille from across the globe. River identified a long-list of 112 potential candidates, all of whom were approached. Following extensive qualification a short-list of seven candidates were presented to Holidu, all of whom were moved forward to interview. Holidu successfully offered and hired one of the seven candidates, who was a French expat currently based in Spain. In total, the entire process took six weeks.
