Independent Search Partnership is a leading executive search firm founded by former Korn Ferry Partner Guy Beresford. Guy was running a search for the Chief Executive of Nisbets, the UK's largest supplier of catering equipment, and was not prepared to leave any stone unturned in finding his client the best candidate. In parallel to running a traditional search process, Independent Search Partnership cast the net wider by using Nurole to identify Klaus Goeldenbot, the successful candidate.

Guy commented:

The big difference between Nurole and other sites I have tried for candidate sourcing is the quality and relevance of the candidates. The way the platform is structured helps address key concerns up front which makes the process incredibly efficient. It’s also fantastically quick – you get connected with great candidates within days. A huge asset for anyone hiring at board level.

Successful candidate and new Nisbets CEO Klaus Goeldenbot was most recently in the role of president at global electronic and industrial components company RS Components. Before this, Klaus spent 10 years with C-Part and MRO distributor Wϋrth.

Klaus commented:

When Nurole alerted me to the Nisbets CEO role I KNEW this was the role for me. The whole process took less than three weeks. When something is right you just know it. The Nurole process is very simple and quick - there’s no bureaucracy. Submitting my application required careful consideration but I liked that it gave me the opportunity to present myself in the best possible light at a time of my choosing. I am very excited to be working with everyone at Nisbets to write the next successful chapter of the Nisbets story.
