A Few of Our Clients

Client Voices

From understanding the circumstances that led to the vacancy and defining the role, to proactively reaching out to the best candidates and frequently presenting insightful candidate reviews, BMES provided outstanding support. They also supported us with negotiating the package, and even after the deal was closed, BMES helped realize the full potential benefit of the match by frequently following-up with us and the candidate.

– General Manager Asia-Pacific Business 

BMES started the process with providing our regional team with great market insight in regard to industries, salaries and seniority which allowed us to narrow down the target pool prior to actually approaching the market. We received the first shortlist of resumes within 2 weeks from sign off and were able to finalize the selection process by week 6.

– President & Representative Director

When I asked BMES for information regarding the market, what they provided was excelling what we expected and helped us stay on the right track. It is amazing that they can put these in-depth information together within such a short timeline and that they constantly check in to see if there’s a need for their services. No other recruiters provides this experience. I take it as true commitment and am very thankful for that.

Success Story

A US e-commerce retailer was looking for a new Managing Director to further scale their Japan business and eventually drive their IPO.

The client had high expectations. The ideal candidate for the MD role would have a strong track record in the luxury space and outstanding leadership skills while fitting well into the client’s entrepreneurial company culture. Another challenge would be the client’s relatively low brand recognition combined with the notorious risk aversity of Japanese candidates especially when it comes to foreign startups.

From previous experience we knew that the client’s ideal candidate profile would be very difficult to find in Japan. To gain a full overview of the luxury market, we put together a team of 4, including the lead consultant and 3 dedicated researchers who started to map out the space. During the search we discovered that the industry was rather conservative, and most people wouldn’t fit the client’s startup culture and values.

Based on our data and consultation the client decided to turn the focus of the role to Brand Management and end-to-end Marketing, a move that opened them up for a much more promising talent pool. Since we had spoken with over 200 luxury candidates of all calibers, we were able to quickly produce 8 candidates the client wanted to meet.

Within only a month of changing the search criteria, the client was able to onboard a highly experienced, nimble and proactive luxury superstar who had seemed to be an out-of-the-box candidate at the very beginning of the search but was in reality a perfect match for the company’s needs and culture.

The client was extremely satisfied with or transparent process and fast results and has assigned us since with many more search such as Digital Marketing & Marcom Director, Director of E-Commerce, Retail Director and Sales Director which we were able to all successful close.
