How we did it
The search was conducted in Spain with the importance being placed on candidates being a good culture fit
Although the client preferred female candidates, the search was focused on objectively finding the best candidates for the position, regardless of their gender.
The search process was activated considering the following key characteristics: knowledge of corporate governance specific to the areas the candidate was going to be responsible for; hands-on experience in a family-run business; knowledge of the CPG industry; and internationalization experience primarily focused on processes led from Spain towards foreign markets.
In this search process, the culture fit was deemed more important than having experience in the business operating industry, CPG.
The company looked ideally for a female candidate who could bring both her vision and diversity to the Board.
Culture fit was decisive to define the right profile, given the characteristics of work environments in family-run businesses.
Regarding the candidates’ work experience, international vision and prior participation in corporate governance under similar roles were prioritized.
