Cellexus – Finding Talent
What was the nature of Cellexus’ challenge?
Cellexus Ltd manufacture innovative high performance single use bioreactor systems. In early 2015 the company relocated from Cambridge to Dundee and as a result they needed to rebuild their team.
How did Innova Partnerships help?
At Innova, we believe that people invest in people so it was vital that we helped Cellexus identify and select high quality individuals to add value to the company. During their transition, we worked with the managing director and the Cellexus board, using our networks and insight into key local recruitment platforms as well as our extensive experience in team building, to successfully appoint a business development manager. Having built a trusted client relationship we worked again with the managing director in succession planning. This led to the recruitment of a new CEO in late 2015. Furthermore, recommendations from our network also led to the appointment of an experienced and sector-specific chairman for Cellexus at the same time.
What was the outcome of our involvement?
Our support and extensive network directly led to the creation of a stronger team and positioned the company to accelerate their sales pipeline and capitalise on a planned Series B funding round expected in 2016.
