Case Studies


As part of their post-Series C expansion across North America, Australia and Europe, a global Fintech company needed a dedicated talent partner to introduce them to the leaders that will deliver on their ambitious growth strategy as well as support their day-to-day recruitment activity globally.


They chose Acolyte’s Premium Search service to ensure they would be introduced to the very strongest leadership talent for their organisation. For other levels of staff, they chose Acolyte’s innovative Digital Headhunting tool.


They were able to make key C-Suite placements including their Chief Financial Officer, Chief Revenue Officer, General Counsel and Head of M&A at a fraction of the cost of traditional executive search alternatives.

Acolyte’s transformative talent solution is delivering outstanding candidates globally that just aren’t available through traditional agencies. I can’t recommend it highly enough!
