Building Leslie’s Dream-Team: Creating a 20-Member Global Sales and Marketing Team in Just 60 Days

Ortus became Leslie's exclusive international talent partner following a multi-million seed stage funding round. Leslie, a start-up acquired by FETCH, required a quick solution to get twenty marketing and sales candidates placed across the world to hit their sales revenue targets and secure a further funding round for Series A investment.

The roles Ortus needed to recruit for were as follows:


The main challenge we were presented with was having to source, interview and place a large number of candidates as quickly as possible. Knowing this was going to be a difficult task, Leslie reached out to us exclusively based on our international experience in building out teams, knowing that Ortus Talent were the ones to get the job done.


Ortus Talent sprung into action, meeting with the entire hiring team, including VP People, VP Sales, and Sales Enablement Director to build out a robust hiring strategy across Europe and the USA. 

The Ortus team recognised the importance of finding top talent to achieve Leslie’s goals of achieving growth targets and expanding into new markets, and so the team developed a comprehensive recruitment process to find the best of the best. 


The Ortus team managed to hire and place every successful candidate across the UK, USA, Italy, Spain, and Portugal within 60 days. The fastest recruit was a remarkable 5 days for the Head of Sales USA, which included briefing, first, second, and third interviews in this timeframe, and an accepted offer. 

The new hires brought the needed expertise to fufil Leslie’s objectives, who as a result, were able to branch out into new territories and develop new revenue streams.


Luke Preskey, VP of Sales, shared the success story of how Ortus built their dream team on his podcast episode with us, which can be listened to here
