Have you ever reached out to a CEO at a business you admire and would like to work for?
In Episode 33 I interview Dave Shemmans CEO of Ricardo plc.
Dave has had a fantastic career and reached the CEO level of a Plc before reaching 40 years old.
Over the last 15 years he has managed, diversified and grown Ricardo into a truly global business with operating bases at each corner of the world.
Ricardo are a fascinating and innovative technology business responsible for giving us 4 wheel drive in the Jensen interceptor and Group B Rally cars of the 80’s, the Bugatti Veyron’s transmission and they designed and manufacture McLaren’s current 600+hp twin turbo V8 engine.
They are also at the forefront of EV powertrains, trains and commercial vehicles using their engineering capability to make our increasingly urbanised world more efficient and environmentally friendly.
Dave explains his journey and gives us some deep insight into his recruiting methods, hiring experience and the things you should do to uncover and land senior hidden jobs.
