The Approach

Co-founded by Simon Yock and Scott McKenzie in New Zealand in 2016, Forsite had identified the UK as the next market and engaged Newfound to build the beachhead and conduct the search for its first person on the ground to set up a UK sales presence.

Forsite has been very pleased to work with Newfound as we enter the UK market. The care and effort they've made to ensure the process is effective and beneficial cannot be underestimated.

The Results

We conducted a UK-wide search to find sales leaders with deep knowledge of software sales to the property sector, who could lead the market entry, build pipeline and close deals. Producing a shortlist within four weeks, Newfound then successfully managed the offer process to hire Guy Adderley, the new country manager.

Guy has been a successful hire for Forsite helping them to quickly build traction in the UK and expand the business.
