IT & Digital Marketing

Everything is changing - the digital impact is felt across entire organisations, industries and markets. Communication is the key to these changes, requiring an in-depth review of the business models in all industries.

Technology is the major engine of the new digital era, requiring business leaders with the ability to anticipate future needs/wants, and delivering products/services that meet those needs in an intelligent and integrated way.

Digital leadership cannot be led by one individual executive, all effective leaders need to cultivate a digital mind-set and become digital pioneers. Digital leaders are champions in cultivating data-driven culture, embedding data into business processes to manage innovation via discipline and satisfy customer via creativity. Organisations must optimise their ability to attract top digital talent with a clear digital strategy, overt C-level sponsorship, an entrepreneurial culture that values experimentation and creativity, and a reporting structure that empowers leaders with digital skills.

Harvey Nash Executive Search can support your company by securing strong leaders and core talent with the right mixture of experience, skills, and qualities - talent that truly understands this digital paradigm shift towards the convergence of social media, mobile computing, analytics and cloud.

We serve digital-related recruitment needs across all industries. Our digital consultants and researchers have solid experience from the digital domain and our daily work gives us extraordinary insight into the latest digital talent trends. Our team works together across geographies and business lines to provide clients with seamless local service combined with the depth and vision of a global firm.

CIO, CTO & Executive IT

The CIO Practice has been established for over a decade and has successfully placed numerous CIOs, CTOs and IT directors in a spectrum of companies. Whilst we have a dedicated team of consultants specialising in CIO placements, our knowledge encapsulates other functions of leadership, including CTO, IT directors, heads of IT and IT management roles.

We execute searches for world-class companies and well-respected brands that require cutting-edge change and both strategic and tactical technology investment and innovation.

Our client portfolio includes businesses that insist upon exceptionally talented technology leaders and view IT investment in terms of the value it delivers rather than the cost required.

Harvey Nash Executive Search’s global presence enables us to leverage candidates from across the world, guaranteeing shortlists that are both talent rich and diverse. The CIO/Executive IT Practice typically focuses on positions at C, VP and director levels across all functional IT areas.

Our strategic relationships with both clients and elite executive talent, combined with a deep understanding of issues and changing roles spanning the entire technology and business process value chain, provide us with the ability to drive repeated and measurable results for our clients and candidates.


Today’s increased competition and intensified globalisation has enabled leaders in marketing able to see the bigger picture, quickly drive change while at the same time, maintain a focus on the bottom line.

CMO or marketing directors often make the difference between a company’s success and failure. The demands from the shareholders and board are absolute in terms of a company’s ability to generate growth and achieve the greatest possible impact on the market. Harvey Nash Executive Search has more than twenty years’ experience of recruiting leading sales and marketing directors for both small and large international companies from a wide variety of sectors.

Our strength lies in our ability to identify executives who can combine strong leadership with an ability to drive through complex change projects, whilst at the same time maintaining their focus on strategic sales and marketing work.

We have built up an extensive and active international network within the marketing and communications sector, consisting of the outstanding talent of today and the high potentials of tomorrow.
