INNOVATION & TECHNOLOGY PRACTICE
The Digital Multiverse—Software/SaaS, Data/AI, VR/AR, Social Media, and the IoT—is powering innovation, forcing disruption in multiple sectors, and transforming the global economy. With many existing models being upended, businesses need agile leaders who can innovate, execute, and build dynamic cultures.
About the Practice
Raines’ Innovation and Technology practice finds the right leaders— gifted CEOs and C-Suite leaders in Finance, Operations, Marketing, Sales, and Tech – to keep product innovations and business humming. We place leaders who manage with agility and thrive in complexity — leaders who innovate, drive diversity and encourage their teams to dream big and achieve great things. This supports our mission to maximize human potential and support our clients’ growth and value creation through great placements and our suite of leadership services. Our team calls this the Innovation Competency, and we specialize in finding executives who possess it. Finding it in an individual requires a unique blending of candidate targeting, qualification, interviewing, 3rd-party sourcing, and assessment. Once a finalist is determined, our 360° referencing and final assessment confirms the client’s choice. Then we follow up continually to ensure a placement’s onboarding is successful.

So too are physical security compromises—many with lethal consequences. With people everywhere vulnerable to this scourge, and investors seeing their investments melt down, many want to know who should be in charge of turning this around, and is enough being done to find the right leadership to ensure security and protect critical data.
