Joe specialises in software executive search as a Technology Partner at Bailey Fisher Executive Search. He is responsible for delivering global searches for ambitious companies in enterprise SaaS, EdTech, FinTech and digital health, from emerging high-growth businesses to large corporates.
Joe has an in-depth knowledge of the software sector and a proven track record in delivering CEO, CXO and Director level hires. He has recently completed the following executive search assignments: CMO for a FinTech B2C platform; Managing Director for a content management SaaS business; General Manager for a US headquartered enterprise SaaS business; CTO for a venture backed software business; CTO for an EdTech business and multiple hires for an AIM listed security technology company.
With 14 years’ experience managing executive level appointments for clients across different structures and stages of growth, Joe is able to quickly understand the challenges faced by his clients in growing their business. Joe takes the time to get to know a client’s business and motivation to hire, and his proactive approach and commitment are appreciated by his clients. This often results in his clients re-engaging him for further assignments.
“Joe led the search process and delivered a super result for the business. His understanding of the brief coupled with his professional approach and impressive network within the tech sector enabled him to develop a high quality candidate short list very quickly which resulted in the appointment of Director of NPD. I could not be more delighted with the outcome and will look to using Bailey Fisher for future assignments.” CEO, VC-backed digital health business
