The Brief.

Our client, a global pharmaceutical giant, instructed us to rebuild their global privacy team following a restructuring.


Our first task was to find a Chief Privacy Officer, a qualified lawyer with extensive leadership and transformation experience. This person would rebuild relationships with key stakeholder groups and advance our client’s digital and privacy agenda in a highly regulated, traditional and cautious corporate environment. The role could be in the US or the UK, so we ran a dual search.


 We advised on the new global privacy team structure, headcount allocation, budgets and resource planning. After successfully appointing the Chief Privacy Officer, we worked to build the team of Associate General Counsel (“AGC”)  to support this role. 

The Outcome.

Rebuilt the entire global privacy team, sourcing candidates from the US & the UK.

Successfully placed tech-literate Chief Privacy Officer with both emotional intelligence and leadership experience.

Placed all positions, and 50% of these placements were diverse candidates.
