“​Centiro, the leading innovator in cloud-based transportation and delivery management solutions, headquartered in Boras, Sweden was looking for a senior member of their leadership team to spearhead their international expansion. Centiro retained the services of Propel Executive to recruit a Senior Vice President of Global Sales. The team at Propel delivered an excellent shortlist of candidates matching the profile of requirements we had. There was a great written presentation of the candidates and a great follow up after we had interviewed them. I would gladly recommend Propel Executive to other companies that have plans to recruit on an executive level."

Kerstijn Wejlid HR Director Centiro Solutions, Stockholm​​

“I chose to work with Propel on our VP of Business Development for EMEA position as we needed an expert in the industry to fill what was a very tough role. The team at Propel has worked hard and has provided me with a shortlist of candidates who were varied in terms of background, experience, and location. After reviewing the shortlist, the process was very easy and facilitated by the team, who helped with the scheduling of the interviews and the arrangement of a location, being us based in the US and not having an office in EMEA yet at that time. With a very accurate analysis of the candidates’ current situations, we were able to hire the perfect candidate for the role. We would definitely recommend Propel to any company who wants to make a fast appointment and wants to be sure to make the right choice"

Alan Keller | Dudamobile

We worked with Propel Executive for a senior data science search earlier this year. It was a very conscious decision to look in different markets for a different kind of talent.  I was extremely impressed with their knowledge of the data science world and as a result their ability to advise and help shape our thinking. They delivered fast on a shortlist against an in-demand skill set and were able to crisply and accurately reflect candidate motivations and needs. The outcome was a simple process managed effectively from beginning to end. We have now hired an excellent candidate and I would not hesitate to recommend Propel or use them again.”
