CTO Executive Search

CTO Search and Recruitment: The Challenge

A public safety, incident, and security management software solution company engaged N2Growth for a CTO Search. The company was seeking a collaborative and engaging individual to lead the company by integrating multiple records management and dispatch products into a single platform while supporting ongoing projects.

The Mission

Our client required a tested CTO who could work collaboratively across cultures to motivate the technology team and organization. Specialized expertise required included a strong technology background with an understanding of the company’s business and market, experience with and understanding of private equity, and experience integrating disparate technologies.  The CTO would advise the CEO and leadership team on the company’s long-term technical and strategic direction and be a sounding board for the CEO and C-suite by providing a neutral role putting the company’s long-term technology interests front and center. In partnership with finding the client’s CTO, N2Growth played a pivotal role as a thought partner in helping our client envision an optimal candidate type to oversee all elements of the company’s technical strategy and operations.  

The Result

The specific insights we drew and the alignment we found in the early days of this search created clarity and little need for specification iteration as the search developed. Our team rigorously mapped the market for candidates whose attributes were attuned to our client’s needs. After tens of interviews, we submitted six candidates for consideration for the role. Despite an economic slowdown, we worked with our client to ensure finalist candidate interviews were conducted in a timely manner.  Our client executed an employment agreement with a top-tier candidate with deep expertise in integrating multiple products into a single platform and advising other C-suite on vital technology strategy for the company’s long-term interests culminating in placing the candidate in just 56 days.
