A private equity group which owns an international retail business operating in more than thirty countries planned to hire a new CEO and also a new CFO for that business. At the same time, the investors were also reviewing the headquarters location of the retail business. Four locations were under consideration – in markets where they had the strongest presence: the US, the UK, South Africa and Australia. Research Europe, combining desk research, vigorous networking and telephone interviewing produced comparative data showing the range of CEO and CFO salaries within similar retail businesses, headquartered in those same four markets. This research subsequently influenced the decision on where to search for and locate these key executives.
