The candidates we receive from High Performers are consistently very well matched to our requirements, as they take the time to fully understand our business all the way through from product, stakeholder structure, recruitment processes, and crucially; personality fit.
Job Function: Sales
High Performers are Veeam's leading recruitment partner in EMEA this year. The business consistently delivers high-quality candidates against each hiring requirement.
Veeam SW has an incredible partner programme, driving relationships and collaboration across the channel environment, which delivers consistent, best in class solutions to their customers. Veeam's journey started by leveraging the channel, which gave immediate access to the SMB and Mid-Market arena and has since grown into the Enterprise and Cloud markets respectively.
The enterprise market has seen consistent growth, most noticeably this year at c.46% YoY. Due to impressive growth and an increased demand for enterprise-ready solutions, Veeam took about the task of growing their enterprise team.
The challenge with the hire was finding Enterprise Account Manager's that have had experience winning new Enterprise customers and not just inheriting and growing existing account bases. A business that is moving rapidly in any market needs a 'hunter profile' to drive growth and develop net-new customers, from what can be considered a slightly 'cold' approach.
The monitoring and reporting capabilities provided by High Performers enable more proactive recruiting, positioning Veeam against its competitors, the start-ups and the well-established businesses all of whom are competing in a finite talent pool.
"Aside from the core function of supplying relevant, and timely candidates, High Performers regularly add extra value by informing us of market-conditions, brand-reputation, and all manner of business intelligence, as well as providing solid statistical data when requested." Matt Lomax said.
Moreover, High Performers executive search orientated approach allowed the team to identify over 74 candidates for this role from 55 competitive vendors, channel partners, and service providers.
