OUR CASE STUDIES
Chief Product Officer
A successful scale-up in Ottawa, Klipfolio, had just completed a successful raise and they were ready to expand their product offering but first, they needed a visionary leader to help guide them.
Learn more about the challenge they faced and how the Artemis Canada team helped them find the right Chief Product Officer for their team.
Klipfolio was at a critical stage of growth when they engaged with the Artemis Canada team. They had secured Series B ($12M) financing and were well poised for growth, but needed a visionary product leader to help them define and execute on a strategy to develop and launch a new product within 12 months. We worked with them to understand the market, the opportunity, and how this new leader would help them define their future.
We flew to Ottawa to spend some time with the leadership team and through in-depth discussions, we heard that they needed a strategic leader who could define and communicate a clear, user-centered product vision. We conducted a thorough search, brought in candidates from the Ottawa area, Toronto, and Canadian expats looking to return from the US.
Artemis worked with the leadership team and board as their vision evolved through meetings with several candidates. There was a clear match when they meet with David Mennie in Ottawa. David had recently been part of a successful tech acquisition and was ready to get back into building stage company.
With David’s help, Klipfolio has earned a spot in Deloitte's Fast Top 50 and Capterra’s Top 20 Most Popular BI Software. They’ve been named a Market Leader in the Business Intelligence Software category for the Winter 2019 Customer Success Report published by FeaturedCustomers.
David was able to achieve his goal of working with a company in a building stage with a leadership team, board, and vision he respected and admired. With Klipfolio, he has been able to develop his team, and deliver a product strategy that has the company poised for very big things.
“Artemis helped us recruit for a key, extremely difficult-to-hire senior executive role...Throughout the process, we were impressed with the thoroughness of their research, the extent of their vetting, assessment of candidates, and the manner in which they engaged with them. Without question, they represented our brand to a "T". Leigh found our needle in the haystack. We will definitely engage Artemis for future recruitment and hiring."
Head of HR @ Klipfolio
"Working with Leigh and Kristina was outstanding! They took a completely different approach to recruiting that felt they had both the employer and my interests in mind. They provided me with key insights into the team and the organization (beyond what I could capture in interviews alone) allowing me to ask better questions and make sure the fit was truly there."
