Ronan Colleran, Managing Director, Accreate said:

“This is a significant step for Accreate and I’m very pleased to be adding the skills of Bonnie Stevens to our existing successful team. Her previous track record makes her ideal to take up this unique role. We are undoubtedly facing a challenging market environment as are many businesses around the world. However client demand shows us there is real opportunity for us to grow our executive search offering in London and we are very excited about moving into this market. The presence of our sister brand Morgan McKinley in London, has given us significant insight into the market, and Bonnie brings a different but very complementary skill set from Accreate.

“With the density of international talent in London and the South East, London is the ideal place for us to launch our international offering. Bonnie will have a dual role, sourcing key talent from across the region for executive roles in London - a new and exciting offering from our brand. In addition, she will look to work with senior professionals who have developed their careers abroad, to utilise their skills in high profile roles across multiple sectors back home in Ireland.”
