WICKLAND WESTCOTT MAKES STRATEGIC APPOINTMENT TO DRIVE EXECUTIVE SEARCH OFFERING

Leading executive search and talent consultancy, Wickland Westcott, has appointed Mike Spurr to head up the business’ search operation in a move to capitalise on the growth and increasing market profile of the firm.

Mike, who has been a Search Consultant at Wickland Westcott for three years, will be responsible for leading the executive search strategy and ensuring the business continues to perform at the highest level across all of its key sectors.

As Head of Search, he is tasked with growing the company’s existing portfolio of high profile clients, as well as expanding the consultancy’s existing team and building on the expertise within it.

Mike has almost 20 years' experience in executive search, working with Boards to find Chairmen, Chief Executives, Finance Directors and Non-Executive directors for plc, private, public sector and third sector organisations. He succeeds the current Head of Search, Ian Richardson, who is moving to take on the position of Non-Executive Chairman.

Commenting on his new role, Mike said: “Over the last few years, Wickland Westcott has become firmly established as a respected market leader, delivering quality work at Board level within high profile FTSE businesses, private and public sector organisations.  We’re experiencing strong demand, despite the tough trading climate, and my appointment is part of the plan to keep our expansion plans on track. We are also growing our search team in London with an additional consultant, enhancing our internal research resource and strengthening our specialist practice capabilities.  It’s a really exciting time for us and I look forward to leading the team to ensure the search business reaches its full potential.”

Before joining Wickland Westcott, Mike held the position of Managing Partner at three of the UK's leading international search firms, transacting work in the UK, Europe and the US. Prior to entering search, Mike's career encompassed ten years in pharmaceuticals and healthcare, including The Boots Company, followed by six years in financial services with Green Flag.
