Compass Executives won a competitive pitch to partner Optegra – a leading International Ophthalmology provider, owned by Moonray Healthcare, the biomedical investment arm of Fidelity International  – to source a number of new Hospital Directors within their UK operations.

After failed attempts at recruiting to the posts (both internally & via contingency recruitment agencies), Compass Executives were mandated to find a solution which others couldn’t. After two weeks of headhunting, a two stage interview was conducted in which Optegra’s Global CEO initially asked to see just one individual for each position at final stage. Such was the calibre both interviews resulted in an offer with one individual being managed through a counter offer process in order to attain.

This subsequently led to the exclusive mandates of a Medical Director, and a Commercial Director for the business as a result of the high quality service provision experienced when sourcing four Hospital Directors for the organisation.

We were very pleased to select Compass Executives for the placement of 2 critical Directors. It was obvious in a competitive tender that Ben understood our desired candidate profile, the market and ability to attract talent. While this was a search open for a while and in not obvious locations, Ben was able to attract 2 top talents matching clearly the profile and expectations of the company. We look forward to continuing our partnership with Compass Executives.

Ben was professional, thorough, supportive and extremely knowledgeable about his client and industry in all my dealings with him. Ben was clearly hugely respected by the client he was representing and this made our conversations very productive and seamless. I would recommend Ben to anyone who is looking to grow and move forward their career.
