ECHM, Nigel Lynn and Morgan McKinley Come Together
Today, three of the most respected specialist finance recruiters ECHM, Nigel Lynn and Morgan McKinley have come together under the name Morgan McKinley. With an exciting new visual identity, the enlarged business will offer candidates and clients access to a broader range of talent and opportunities across multiple sectors, disciplines and geographies.
Building on the strong reputation Morgan McKinley has within the financial services sector, the companys ambition now is to become the best professional recruitment consultancy globally. From today, the combined businesses will provide contingency and retained recruitment solutions for permanent, temporary and contract roles across five key specialist areas banking and financial services, commerce & industry, taxation, public practice, public sector & not-for-profit.
The integration has expanded Morgan McKinleys regional network to ten offices in the UK as well as operations in Europe, Asia-Pacific and the Middle East.
A bold new visual identity and dynamic website will differentiate the new Morgan McKinley from its competitors and further establish the brand as the specialist recruitment consultancy of choice for both employers and jobseekers.
Gerald Fitzgerald, CEO of Morgan McKinley UK comments: This is an exciting time for us as we bring three respected UK finance brands together under one unifying brand, Morgan McKinley. The rebrand includes a new visual identity for the business but most importantly, under one brand our clients and candidates will have access to an even broader range of talent and opportunities via our sector, functional and geographically aligned specialist consultants.
Each division within the new Morgan McKinley brand will maintain its area of specialism and our consultants will continue to be singled out for their expertise within each specific sector, function and geographical market in which we operate. Our commitment to quality is absolute and this will only be enhanced by bringing these businesses together. Taking best practice from each brand in areas such as systems and process implementation, IT infrastructure, marketing, finance and HR support, will ensure continued delivery of unparalleled levels of service to our clients and candidates.
Internally, this integration is about bringing our staff together as one team under a common identity. Likewise, it will allow for much greater cohesion between the businesses and provide opportunities to enhance our presence within the UK market and internationally. It is a key step in Morgan McKinley achieving its ambition to be the best professional recruitment company globally.
