Page Executive Switzerland worked closely with colleagues from the Belgian office to source a VP of R&D for a hygiene, food chemicals and detergents business.

The purpose was to target and approach someone who was currently in a VP of innovation, R&D or technology role, and had sector experience in the food or chemicals business. The salary package was high and the business was interested in attracting candidates from other countries.


The team in Switzerland led the search with support from colleagues in Belgium. The Belgian team quickly located a candidate who was a great match and interested in the opportunity.


The feedback received by Switzerland was that the first CV was perfectly targeted and that they would like to receive more. After networking and a search of the market, the Belgian team introduced two more candidates into talent attraction process. The first candidate successfully completed all interview stages within a two month period and received an offer after the last stage of assessment.
