Recent mandate

Client: Multibillion turnover TMT group
Position: Managing Director, Strategy

Redgrave Partners were retained to hire this newly created role, as result of significant growth within the group, and a requirement to build succession planning within the corporate strategy team. Following a thorough, international search process, a strong short list was agreed with the hiring manager.

This resulted in a preferred candidate being fast tracked to offer. As a result of Redgrave’s success in managing this search, Redgrave were mandated soon thereafter to deliver another senior level retained search process.


“Redgrave Partners did a great job in a recent search for News UK. They understood the brief and the culture of our business so as to deliver a strong shortlist of candidates for us to interview. This made it an efficient recruitment process and allowed us to select the ideal candidate to help drive our business forward.”
