The Situation

Onto were going through an exciting part of their evolution. Having raised a Series A funding round, the business was starting to scale at real pace. They were embarking on a period of growth that would transform the shape of the business and sought to make C-Level appointments to help them develop their Marketing and Tech teams. The business had always had a long waiting list for customers but as they scaled across the UK they wanted to bring in a leader to help spearhead the customer acquisition strategy and brand building.

Agora conducted a full market map of CMO’s & Marketing Director’s in the D2C space in the UK.

The Result

Agora identified what it takes for a candidate to be successful in the Onto culture and went on to hire a CTO for the business and then helped the CMO build out their marketing team.
