CIO/CTO/CSO/CISO

We help clients to acquire the right leaders to develop IT functions that are true engines of innovation.

Today’s tech leaders – Chief Information Officer, Chief Technology Officer, Chief Security Officer, and Chief Information Security Officer – face a new set of platform and vendor challenges, with developments such as cloud technology raising issues around latency, availability and security.

New ways of working and the blurring of corporate and social networks require companies to rethink corporate practices to protect customers, maintain compliance and minimise reputation damage. Pressure on costs has driven the shift from CAPEX and licensed software to OPEX and subscription SaaS solutions, boosting transformation but also risk.

In recruiting a CIO, we help clients to acquire an outstanding leader whose IT function will be fully connected to the business, commercially astute and geared to advancing the organisation’s goals.

Great CIOs and CTOs are true business leaders, capable of influencing stakeholders to drive change and innovation. They bring real business value and enhance competitive differentiation, while leading diverse, multidisciplinary teams and managing interdependencies among customers, regulators, shareholders, competitors and the broader community.

The roles of CSO or CISO grew from the frequency and magnitude of malicious cyber-attacks, prompting the need to build a more security-oriented organisation. This involves coordinating with government bodies, the intelligence community and start-ups offering innovative solutions, in order to keep up with the ever-evolving risk, bureaucratic and technological landscapes.

Our multi-disciplinary team helps clients to recruit the right tech leader for their organisation: a leader who can integrate emerging technologies into the business to build and protect its value for the future.
