Our client is the largest developer and manufacturer of power storage solutions in Europe. The company already had a strong, business development-oriented Country Manager who had identified the market and growth potential. However, the technical and commercial requirements, use cases, and revenue streams were very different from the home market. TH Bender was asked to recruit the whole team supporting the local CEO, including engineering, product development, finance, sales, human resources, and technical communications. Due to unforeseen circumstances the CEO left shortly thereafter but the team was able to continue its work without missing a beat until a new CEO was found. The company was able to significantly increase its valuation for subsequent financing rounds and is now a solid #2 behind the American leader.
