Background

Saint-Gobain Ecophon was in need of recruiting a new Purchasing Manager and at the same time needed to adjust the profile to further challenge the organization, mainly focusing on strategy and actions. To really challenge themselves with what the main profile should contain, they decided to use an interim solution during the parallel recruiting process in the pursuit of a highly skilled procurement & purchasing professional. We asked Olivier Lallemant, Supply Chain & Operations Director, about their experience in working with K2 Search.

Why did you choose K2 Search?

K2 Search took the time to really understand our current situation as a company, our management culture and challenged us to think outside the box in the definition of our needs.

How was your experience working with K2 Search?

We got a very good collection of different profiles and a very strong shortlist of potential candidates. The complexity of the position needed a solid understanding for our position as a customer and I believe K2 Search conducted the assignments with high energy, open and honest communication and an attention to details.

What advantages do you see using an external interim manager?

It was the first time for me to use an interim manager and I think it turned out in an excellent way. The K2 Search interim consultant really prepared for further management decisions as he analyzed and executed on topics we had not done or would need of addressing in the near future.

Why would you recommend K2 Search as a partner for executive search and interim management?

The professional K2 Search team, a transparent and clear process, close follow-ups and strong candidate delivery.
