Working across cities, infrastructure and transport, Steer is a progressive business that combines commercial, economic, technical and planning expertise to provide clients with a commercial and competitive edge.
Steer’s impressive projects range from tackling poor air quality in Southwark, to improving passenger coach transport in Europe, to maximising external accessibility for the world-famous Maracanã Stadium in Rio De Janeiro.
Steer’s Chief Executive Officer, Hugh Jones, was looking for a highly capable interim Finance Director to stabilise and improve the department’s core processes and functions.
In a firm that is committed to joined-up thinking and has strong client relationships at its core, it was also imperative that the hire was a good cultural fit for the business.
Simon Moore, Executive Director in the finance function at BIE, worked closely with Hugh Jones to establish a clear mandate for the role.
Having worked with Steer Group previously on HR and IT roles, BIE were well-versed in the intricacies of the business.
The next stage was to invest time getting to the heart of what the business needed in terms of an effective hire. Robert Pearce’s candidacy was subsequently presented to the Steer Group within four days of the initial instruction. Shortly after the initial interview, he was offered a six-month assignment and was delighted to accept.
