Recent mandate

Client: FTSE100 Big Data / Software
Position: Partnership Director, EMEA

New role created to take advantage of significant growth opportunities in the EMEA market. The role formed a key part of the EMEA leadership team reporting to the CEO and added to the commercial strength and capability of the business. This truly pan-European search led us into many of the major software and big data providers and focused on individuals with strong commercial, sales leadership experience in both direct and indirect channels. The result was very positive and delivered an outstanding candidate who not only brought the requisite skills and experience but also added strength and depth to the leadership succession plan. It ticked the diversity box too.


“We were impressed with the authenticity, rigour and tenacity which James always applies to successfully completing the work. James and his team have now delivered two exceptional leaders who will accelerate the ongoing success of EE’s Digital offering. It would appear that from having worked with a number of other search firms over the years, James’s skill and experience in identifying the right candidate for the role combined with his collaborative approach makes him a rare breed in the search market. He’s a pleasure to deal with.”
