95 Percent Group, an education company dedicated to helping educators identify and address the needs of all readers, had recently been acquired by a private equity firm. With the two founders transitioning into board and investor roles, the company was left with only one executive, the CEO. As the company experienced rapid growth, it was crucial to bring in experienced leaders who could drive product and service development strategies, enhance operations, and expand sales and marketing capabilities. The CEO understood that maintaining momentum was essential, but equally important was investing in leaders who embodied the company’s mission and values.
Within two weeks, the JM Search team produced a robust candidate pool that aligned with 95 Percent Group’s needs and culture. By working closely and collaboratively with the company, JM Search swiftly identified and placed a Chief Financial Officer, Chief Marketing Officer, and Chief Sales Officer. These new hires added depth to the leadership team and introduced fresh perspectives and ideas to help the company achieve its goals. Consequently, 95 Percent Group has seen improved financial performance, with sales increasing by 33% in the first year following the acquisition and has established a stronger reputation within the industry.
