Tell us about your role:
As the Managing Director of Capita Executive Recruitment, I personally place executives operating across the UK and EMEA. Our practice spans a range of verticals including Technology, Media & Telecoms, and Retail & Consumer. I’ve specialised within these sectors for over a decade, introducing senior Business Transformation and C-suite executives and Directors across all functions. I love helping people find work and relish understanding and addressing my client’s pain points within global programmes and large-scale projects. It never ceases to amaze me how hard recruitment has become over the last 15 years – but that’s what makes it all the more rewarding when it’s done right.
What were you doing before you joined Capita Executive Recruitment?
After a short career playing “soccer” on the East Coast of America, I returned to the UK with no idea what to do next. Football was no longer a viable option as I was carrying a few extra stone by the time I returned to the UK, so, instead I decided to try my hand at recruitment - here we are 17 years later and I’m still in the industry. Before joining Capita, I was Director for an AIM listed Interim business and prior to that, I had led two boutique Search and Interim companies.
What do you get up to outside of work?
I spend most of my time socialising with friends and family. I also enjoy wasting money on cars and watches!
