Best Young Entrepreneur – West Midlands – 2004
A young head for heights
The world of international headhunting is not exactly one for the faint hearted, yet William Laitinen is fast building a world-wide reputation for sourcing the ‘ideal’ candidate.
Boosted by six years experience at a number of high-profile agencies, the Solihull entrepreneur has seen Exige International Headhunters Ltd grow with a 100% increase from the last financial year.
This fast-paced expansion has been achieved by expert consultancy and an unrivalled ability to meet client needs through one of the most comprehensive networks of contacts in the industry.
“Obviously, being relatively young compared to my counterparts, the biggest challenge has been in establishing my reputation, a challenge that is slowly being overcome,” explained William.
“I’ve already presented a number of top-level discussions on the European Recruitment Market for Aston and Warwick Universities, which, when combined with a growing track record with a host of global blue chip clients, is now paving the way for new opportunities.”
William, who regularly takes in five continents in any one week, plans to expand Exige significantly, including the recruitment of five specialist consultants.
