Our work with ekko

Following a successful round of crowdfunding, the business was seeking to appoint an experienced Non-Executive Director to provide strategic direction and guidance to their marketing and growth team.

Building long-lasting partnerships with employers

ekko's CEO & Co-Founder, Oli Cook, reached out to 3Search Executive Search Partner, Rowan Fisk, for support on this crucial hire.

Having worked with Rowan over the past few years on a number of different recruitment processes, Oli was confident that Rowan would take the time to truly understand what ekko was looking for in their ideal candidate. 

Leveraging our network to find the right candidate 

Oli was looking to engage a B2C focused Chief Marketing Officer who would be able to work with ekko in an advisory capacity. As a result, it was crucial that the right candidate had experience in working with start-ups and/or fast-growing businesses, ideally from a technology-led business, like ekko.  

Leveraging his extensive senior network, Rowan was able to quickly introduce Oli to candidates from a range of businesses, including Netflix, Three, Amazon, American Express and Habito. But ultimately, ekko appointed the CCO of Away Resorts to support their growth as a Non-Executive Director.
