City recruitment specialist BIE Executive has boosted its Technology Practice with the appointment of Kersty Bletso.
Kersty will provide senior leadership and significantly expand BIE’s capabilities in this field.
She brings a wealth of experience and a vast network after more than 13 years in the recruitment sector that includes roles at Harvey Nash and Hays, where she has led retained search and contingent recruitment campaigns across multiple sectors in technology.
At BIE Kersty will lead the Technology Practice, which focuses on a wide range of posts including Chief Information Officers (CIOs), CTOs, IT Directors, IS Strategy, Architecture, Digital, Heads of Function, Programme Directors and Transformation Directors on an Executive Search and Interim Management capacity. The role will cover both UK and international search.
BIE Executive Director Ben Hawkins said: "Kersty’s appointment is a real coup for BIE and will help us to rapidly expand our Technology Practice. She brings with her a wealth of experience at the most senior level in a sector where it’s traditionally challenging to find the very best talent.
"Kersty is passionate about making connections between businesses and people, facilitating opportunities for knowledge sharing, networking and introducing organisations that would benefit from knowing each other. She will be a real asset to the team and the business."
As well as being a keen advocate for high quality thought leadership in the tech space, Kersty holds an MBA from the University of Leeds.
