Who are Pentaho?

What was the brief?

Pentaho required the assistance of JPS Selection to complete the hire of a Senior Sales individual for one of their European territories. They were looking for new business hunters with big data, analytics and database backgrounds with contacts in Tier 1 organisations within the territory.


What was our process?

JPS Selection utilised their extensive network of senior-level professionals for this particular placement. Shortlisting 17 donor companies, and then gathering names of aligned candidates from within the database and approaching these directly, JPS Selection were able to present a number of candidates who were a great fit for the role – one of which Pentaho hired.


What was the outcome?

The process took around five weeks to complete, and the candidate is still within the business. They have presently brought on around four million US dollars of business.
