Koala hired a VP of Strategy

A VC-backed eCommerce disruptive scale-up hired a VP of Strategy to guide the growth strategy of the business.

This company was supported by Melinda, Head of Client Success – Asia-Pacific.

About the Company

Koala’s mission is to become the smartest way to buy high-quality furniture online. Combining customer-centric products, a world-class technology and fulfilment platform, incredible customer service and social good, they are changing the way people buy and enjoy furniture.

The organisation turned to Movemeon to receive a shortlist of high-calibre applicants with demonstrated success within a high growth business, as well as extensive consulting experience from a top-tier consulting firm.

The Client’s requirements were:
  • 5+ years of experience in consulting firm

How Movemeon Worked

The process lasted 7 weeks from posting the role on the website to the successful applicants accepting the job offer.
