VANCOUVER, British Columbia & NOVATO, Calif.--()--BuiltSpace Technologies, the Internet of Things for eco-friendly and cost effective facility management, appointed seven industry experts to its advisory board using The ExecRanks.

BuiltSpace is experiencing early success in the Canadian market, and has reached a pivotal point for growth and expansion. The executive team has their sights on entering the U.S. market, as well as exploring other industries. Rick Rolston, CEO of BuiltSpace, turned to The ExecRanks to find advisors that could provide the knowledge, expertise and guidance to reach these specific goals. Within only a few weeks of posting his advisor opportunity on The ExecRanks’ platform, Rick received over 150 applicants and selected 18 of the best candidates for interviews.

“When initially speaking with the candidates, I wanted to know what drove their interest in applying for this role,” said Rick. “I also wanted to hear about their relevant experiences, and how much time they would be willing to commit to this project. I was thrilled with the high quality talent brought to me through The ExecRanks. They exceeded my expectations.”

In just over three months, Rick had in place BuiltSpace’s first advisory board comprised of distinguished executives from industry-leading companies including Delta Airlines, McKinstry Co. and Simon Property Group. Rick found The ExecRanks platform to be a valuable resource for guiding him to highly-qualified executive advisors and managing the selection process.
