Amberscript, which was only formed in 2017, are a market leader. Within the first five years of operation, they have partnered with some of the biggest brands, including Disney, Netflix and Givenchy Paris.
To ensure their organisation’s growth continued, Amberscript wanted to expand its leadership team so that it had a team that could look at the bigger picture whilst still executing core business activities hands-on.
After working on multiple leadership hires together, Amberscript partnered with Innovex to hire a Chief Financial Officer (CFO).
It was important for Amberscript that Innovex found a CFO candidate with the skill, experience and capabilities to build a team that can support their ambitious growth plans, lead transformation projects and optimise current financial processes and operations.
Jake Parish and Collette Griffin ran this search and immediately Delivered. Collette identified over 150 candidates and instantly achieved a 60% engagement rate.
Once identification was complete, Collette and Jake undertook an in-depth interview process, speaking to each candidate for one hour to fully understand whether they met what was required in Amberscript’s CFO brief.
Then after two weeks of beginning the search, a leading shortlist was presented to the Amberscript hiring team.
The interview rounds with the Amberscript team then began. During this process, Collette and Jake took the time to prep each candidate and provide constant feedback to both parties. They were always on hand to assist Amberscript during their decision-making process to ensure they had all the information and market insight available when making their hiring decision.
Once all interview rounds were complete, Martijn Platenkamp, was offered the CFO role at Amberscript and instantly accepted the position. Congratulations Martijn, we are looking forward to watching Martijn Platenkamp on his Amberscript Journey.
