"Between Manufacturing Ops, Clinical Research and our IT organization, we had discovered a way to reduce our investment spend for new manufacturing plants from one billion dollars to just two hundred and fifty million dollars. It was a revolutionary breakthrough, unlike any approach our competitors were contemplating. In order to pull this off, we needed an IT executive with breadth and depth in specialty systems that spanned shop floor controls, MRP, Clinical Information Systems and ERP - all complex specialty areas highly unique in and of themselves. Plus we were requiring this person to possess Cloud experience, when not one major competitor had yet even considered Cloud a viable option. Diligent Partners took this on, but cautioned how unlikely this person even existed. They presented some candidates who could satisfy 60-70% of our requirements but were light as executive leaders, which didn't thrill Diligent or us. As we were about to settle on one candidate, Scott stopped us and challenged our priorities, which he rightly observed were all wrong. We needed a leader who would drive to success. Scott said, 'Indulge me. I know someone who is a force of nature with some of the experience you seek, but most importantly will get the job done, no matter how many obstacles you throw his way. He has delivered every enterprise system successfully. He will organize all your mid-level specialty leaders and deliver this on time, on budget." When we met (NAME REDACTED), we recognized he was a spectacular hire. He built a stronger organization, delivered on his promises, and recently has been promoted into a role of broader strategic importance."
