Simon Ramskill, CIO
They immediately understood RSA’s digital challenges and really “got” what was required in the Chief Digital Officer role. It wasn’t an easy search, but they were tenacious, diligent and effective, finding me great candidates and managing the assignment to a successful finish.
Darren Price, Group CIO
We have recently had great results with Savannah. They spend the time and effort up front to truly understand the client and the specific nature of the role to be filled, they pressure-test the job profile, and are true partners in shaping the role. This allows them to then very rapidly hone in on high-quality candidates and to complete executive searches successfully in aggressive timelines.
Alex Von Schirmeister, Chief Innovation Officer
