Successfully helped me recruit our CEO, delivering an exceptionally strong shortlist that provided real depth and breadth of choice. They are straightforward to deal with, honest and upfront with their advice and guidance, worked at pace and put the hours in to ensure we got the result we needed in the timescales we needed. A first rate job and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them again.
Hugh S C Morgan, Executive Chairman
The service they provide is second to none. They have taken time to understand our brand, mission, values and our requirements and they have always worked at pace to deliver.
Carol Muldoon, VP of Partner Resources, EMEA
They have helped with our senior talent requirements not only within the UK but also in the Nordics, Germany, Italy, France and China. They are results-focused, straightforward and easy to deal with, as well as being true subject matter experts genuinely caring about getting the right result for the client.
Stuart Leven, VP EMEA & Managing Director
Our deep understanding of different segments in the industry allows us to challenge our client’s thinking and introduce new talent from different sectors in a creative and compelling way. Deep personal relationships with industry leaders, less off limits, and a blended search and interim practice gives us access to people that simply aren’t on the radar or accessible to other firms.
We offer a high-touch approach where a dedicated Partner runs your assignment from beginning to end. They are ever-present, hands-on and personally accountable. So the Partner you trust personally runs your search. This defines our client experience and distinguishes from other firms. It has also allowed us to build up an enviable reputation across the Travel, Leisure & Hospitality sectors for successful delivery with outstanding client and candidate focus.
In the past five years, we have made Chairman, CEO, COO and Managing Director appointments for clients ranging from FTSE 100 to Private equity-backed firms. We have also made numerous high-profile appointments at functional level, especially in Marketing, Sales, Digital, Trading, Commercial and Operations/Service. We host regular Boardroom Lunches for movers and shakers in the industry.
