General Managers & Commercial Leaders, Middle East, Africa, Eastern Europe

There was a pressing need to build a pipeline of talent across the Middle East, Eastern Europe and African markets being a focus of their investment and expansion.

MAP & TRACK enabled the creation of talent pools for Russia, Ukraine, the CIS states, the Middle East, West, East and South Africa. Over the duration of the project, eight new leaders were hired from the talent pools.


"Nichols are exceptional innovative thinkers, developing programmes like MAP & TRACK that put their company in a league of their own as a search firm.  We implemented MAP & TRACK in our region for General Manager skills and the programme paid for itself in its first year (generally a three year programme).  Between programmes like this, the service you receive from his boutique firm and their intimate knowledge of the tough recruiting markets of Eastern Europe, Africa and Middle East, Nichols would be my first stop for executive searches.  I would highly recommend NICHOLS to anyone who is looking to solve the impossible external search issues.

General Managers for Europe

Our client was embarking upon an ambitious expansion plan following a company acquisition.  We were asked to build a talent pool of General Managers for ten European countries. MAP & TRACK was able to benchmark, map, search and interview candidates in order to create talent pools of high calibre leaders.  A second objective of the project was to communicate a new corporate employer branding via our engagement with candidates – spreading key messages across their competitors around the region. 

“We worked with Nichols on a Talent Mapping project covering 10 European countries.  We chose to partner with Nichols because of their openness to innovative sourcing strategies and understanding of how the recruitment industry is changing.  We've been impressed by their commitment to gaining an in depth understanding of our company, its culture and strategy and, as a consequence, we have great faith in their ability to market our company to potential candidates."
