Hudson hires new management team for major insurance company

Firm re-organises and places strategic importance on human resources


Legislation forced the organisation to integrate certain activities in a separate entity. A new leader had to be found to manage that new entity. Talent Management systems needed to be implemented under the leadership of a new HR Director.

In general, the organisation’s challenges included:

  • develop a new strategic plan for the forthcoming years
  • reshape the organisational structure
  • optimise processes
  • implement HR at a strategic level
  • upgrade competencies and reinforce the management team

Hudson was asked to help to staff the management team in a new organisation structure under the leadership of a new CEO, to recruit a seasoned General Manager to lead and grow the new business unit and to reinforce the Executive Committee by the hiring of a new HR Director, as from now on HR is considered to be of strategic importance.


- Based upon Hudson’s competency model, we identified the key competencies the new hires needed to have to be successful in their roles.

- In order to recruit and select a leader for the HR department, we assessed an internal candidate and launched a search to identify external candidates. An external candidate was hired.

- To lead the new entity we searched for an Operations/ B.U. Manager who was familiar with the insurance industry.


A new Operations/B.U. Manager and a new HR Director, both with an impressive track record, were hired.

Client Testimonial

Xavier Brenes, CEO of Mutualités Libres/Onafhankelijke Ziekenfondsen:

"Hudson manages to grasp client challenges and environment in order to help us find difficult profiles. Very good collaboration all the way through from understanding the demand to negotiating with candidates."
