As the leader of the U.S. business, I am intimately involved with all active searches and encourage a customer-centric approach across all our campaigns. I believe it is our role to advise clients and candidates truthfully (even if that means sharing tough feedback) and to ensure that we’re being completely transparent throughout the recruitment process – be that when negotiating mutually beneficial commercial agreements, advising clients according to their true needs, getting an authentic perspective on the client's values and culture, and understanding the deeper reasons why a candidate may be looking for a new role. Growing our U.S. business is my ultimate goal, so I always look to hire consultants who share my values in order to ensure that clients receive the same level of service, regardless of who they’re working with.
Having recruited in multiple industries over the course of my 21-year career, I’ve found that real estate & construction are the most dynamic markets I’ve experienced, and I still enjoy knowing that we helped a client deliver on a project, whether it’s a small renovation or a large, ground-up high-rise. A true consultancy should be able to show the value it brings, and we have done that by saving our clients time, energy and millions of dollars on projects by helping them find the best people available. I still remember one client who thanked me two years after a placement, when the individual had saved them $34m on one project alone!
While I’m originally from England, I now live in Westchester, NY with my wife, Catherine, and our daughters, Chloe and Amelia. I’m a voracious reader, have a very eclectic taste in music, always lose at trivia to our operations manager, Stephanie, and on weekend mornings you’ll find me running around Westchester (slowly) to try and keep fit. Fun fact: at the London premiere of iRobot, I somehow found myself on stage at an aftershow party and performed the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme song from start to finish alongside Will Smith and DJ Jazzy Jeff.
