How do you find the right leader to deliver sustainable growth in Africa?

The greatest demand for talent over the last year has been for leaders who can scale businesses.

Executives in Africa are an award-winning Search Firm who specialise purely on senior management roles based across the continent.  Having delivered over 750 Searches across 42 countries in Africa, they really are expert when it comes to human capital acquisition.

They have worked with founders and companies at various fundraising stages to find leaders with experience in new country set-up, creating a blueprint for scaling, fundraising and investor relations as well as leveraging technology and working across all aspects of product design for tech-enabled businesses.

‘Many of our clients are in a ‘race’ to secure market share and achieve first-mover advantage’ commented Sarah FitzMorris, CEO and Co-Founder, ‘So finding the right talent to get them there is critical, but also highly competitive.  It’s a balance between hiring quickly but making sure they get it right first time’.

She believes that EiA’s appointed leaders thrive because they have been proactively profiled, handpicked and evidentially assessed to ensure they can technically deliver what is needed and that they ‘fit’ the behavioural requirements for success. She explains ‘By investing time, and by undertaking full due diligence of the talent market, we give our clients the confidence they are hiring the BEST available leader to meet the specific needs of their business and deliver growth.’

Richard Putley, CEO and Co-Founder believes that hiring leadership should be seen as a financial investment decision, commenting that, ‘When you commit so much time and money into assessing a potential investment, why would you not apply the same thorough approach to appointing the person you will entrust to deliver your objectives?’

The Executives in Africa Team believe that companies can’t afford NOT to invest in getting the right leader as this is a key ingredient to delivering sustainable growth on the African continent, especially in emerging sectors.
