"YouNameIt provided exceptional executive search support, delivering fast, diverse, efficient, and phenomenal results. Through insightful consultations, we identified the perfect candidate for our key executive role.

Lukas Grabenwöger, CEO & Founder Skillfit


Project Scope

Skillfit, after securing significant funding, embarked on a mission to revolutionise training solutions for Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs). The company needed a Co-Founder with a strong background in Learning and Development (L&D) to spearhead their vision of becoming the premier training solution provider for SMEs.


The search was urgent and focused on swiftly identifying top-tier candidates to fulfil this critical role.


Approach

We first understood the company's vision, business goals and growth strategy. Together we defined a calibration profile for the executive search of the Co-Founder. In regular and efficient update calls we interacted fast and brought the perfect candidate on board.


Result

YouNameIt performed 14 interviews with calibrated candidates and consulted in alignment with the client to move forward with 9 candidate interviews within two weeks. We ended up with 1 hire with a time-2-fill of 49 days from kick-off to contract signed and a time-2-hire of 37 days.


About the client

Skillfit, founded in 2023 by Lukas Grabenwöger, has already garnered significant attention in the investment landscape, securing a substantial seven-figure founding round with influential investors on board.


Skillfit offers a holistic solution that drives the entire process in Learning & Development (L&D). From the precise identification of individual learning needs to the delivery of learning content and the accurate measurement of learning outcomes, Skillfit is pioneering a new era of L&D in the SME sector.
