tml Partners appoint Head of Marketing in the Middle East for interior design specialists Havelock One

Case Studies
The real estate function at tml Partners, marketing recruitment specialists, has sourced a critical hire in the MENA region for Havelock One Interiors. 

Havelock One Interiors are leaders in luxury interior design, specialising in retail, hospitality, commercial, entertainment and more. They operate across 7 areas in the MENA region – Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Doha, Kuwait, Manama, Riyadh, and Askar. Havelock One’s vision is to become a key partner in some of the most high-profile interior design projects. 

The Challenge

International recruitment firm, tml Partners, were briefed on Havelock One’s requirements for this critical hire, which had been in the market for the majority of 2022 before tml Partners were briefed. Havelock One required support to identify the right individual for a Head of Marketing position, which would essentially revitalise and enhance the firms brand equity cross-regionally.  

Havelock One was in a crucial time in its 25-year history, and was seeking a dynamic and strong marketing leader to build a best-in-class marketing function. They had a particular interest in bringing in a specialist from the London market to relocate, however, they were also open to homegrown talent – both of which tml Partners were best placed to facilitate. 

The Solution

David Price, Director – Professional Services, and Klaidi Palluqi, Real Estate practice lead, at tml Partners began by deeply understanding the client’s needs and the challenges they were facing – primarily centred around creative initiatives and knowledge of the wider business environment. This opportunity needed the right individual with a passionate drive to implement best practice for their marketing function, with a big-picture mindset. 

Having now successfully appointed the Head of Marketing from the London market to relocate to Dubai, Havelock One is seeing a genuine transformation in their branding, with great value from this strategic hire. 

Mark Waters, Division Director of Retail Manufacturing, commented: “At Havelock One we are proud of our product, and of our service, all made possible due to our amazing team. Looking for a Head of Marketing, we were not only looking for an innovative and creative individual, but someone who would further compliment and collaborate with our internal stakeholders. Having searched for sometime, we were thankfully ‘saved’ by the introduction of tml Partners. We were furnished with a number of candidates that all could carry out the role. We were able to create a shortlist of three which is always a great place to be where you have a choice of candidates that all fit the company profile and expertise required. Honestly, working with tml was a pleasure. All interviews both in person and remote were professionally organized and seamlessly executed. The fact that we ended up finding a Head of Marketing in the UK for a Dubai based role also shows the geographical ‘reach’ that tml Partners have. Thank you.”
