Successful Placement of Senior Business Intelligence Practice Management Role Helps Lead Exceptional Development for Acumetrics

Acumetrics is a Toronto-based business intelligence and data warehousing company that offers a variety of enterprise solutions using Cognos. Established in 2003 to fill a void in the Toronto business intelligence market, they engaged us as their recruitment partner to fill an incredibly specific role within the organization.

The Search

Acumetrics needed an individual who possessed a very particular skill set to take on their Senior Business Intelligence Practice Manager role. We knew it wasn’t going to be easy to find in the Toronto market, so we set our sights on the competition as the most likely source of talent.

They needed someone with significant experience working with Cognos TM1 and Business Intelligence, as well as expertise in other areas of business analytics. Time was a factor in this case, so we had to work quickly and efficiently in order to deliver the highest quality candidate for Acumetrics.

Management came from a manufacturing background

The Results

Our search went exceptionally well. We found an ideal candidate at a competing organization and from there the process was expedited, moving from interview to offer in under a week. The candidate found the opportunity he was looking for and Acumetrics found a leader that would profoundly impact their business moving forward.

When hiring our first CPO, we were looking to branch out beyond our network. The Martyn Bassett Associates team was able to source candidates that we were wanting, but unable to get on our own. We were presented with a wide range of fantastic candidates.

What I love about working with this team is they’re there to help. I have weird requests, they jump on the phone and we figure it out. I need someone in a hurry, they hustle. I maybe need someone ages from now, they keep an eye out. I have a question about a salary, or am unsure about how to approach something – they know. We’ve used them for a few years, and we’ve had nothing but great experience working together. Wish I had found them a few years sooner.
