TOMMI'S BURGER JOINT - MANAGING DIRECTOR FOR NORWAY/FINLAND& OPERATIONS DIRECTOR FOR GERMANY
The Brief - Ingvi Tomasson (CEO) tasked Berkeley Scott with headhunting two senior international leaders with the capability of overseeing and rolling out a number of new restaurants for the award winning Icelandic burger brand, one across Scandinavia and a separate candidate to oversee large planned expansion across Germany. It was essential that these individuals also fitted into the youthful and trendsetting vibe of Tommi's.
The Solution - We approached both active and passive achievement orientated senior figures in my network from various growing high volume casual dining brands. A thorough marketing document was produced to enlighten the candidates on the background of the brand and the expectations of this unique new role.
The Result - For the Scandinavian assignment I produced a strong shortlist of Operations Directors looking for the next step up in their careers, which ultimately led to the placement of a former Operations Director of The Diner Group. For the German project, my shortlist led to the hiring of a former senior figure from both ATFC and Davy's of London. Ingvi, the CEO has been delighted with these hires who have both brought a lot of innovation, entrepreneurialism and energy into challenging foreign markets.
