Eden Search & Select reports rapid growth
Eden Search & Select – the specialist executive recruitment consultancy for the agribusiness, fresh produce, and food and drink industries – has announced double-digit rapid growth. Business is booming for the company, which was set up just three years ago and now boasts an impressive list of clients, including many household names.
Year-on-year growth, and a significant uplift in revenue over the last twelve months, has led three new people to join the Eden Search & Select team in quick succession. The business has also recently launched a new website to reflect its expanding executive search capabilities and growing client base. Team profiles and customer case studies feature heavily on the site, giving a flavour of the company’s straightforward, research-focused approach to identifying senior and board-level candidates for positions across food and farming markets, in the UK and abroad.
Eden Search & Select was founded in 2010 by David Macaulay, an agribusiness graduate and talented recruitment consultant with more than ten years’ sector experience. With David at the helm, Eden Search & Select now boasts a five-strong team of associates that regularly handle executive search and headhunting briefs for roles in the UK but also in far-flung places such as Azerbaijan, Russia and East Africa.
The team now includes Darren Houghton, Sarah Metcalfe and Elizabeth Cox, as well as David and his long-term associate Roger Latham. Together they successfully place candidates for companies including Innocent Drinks, Cockerills, Vitacress, Greenvale, Produce World and Fage UK.
David Macaulay, Managing Director of Eden Search & Select, said, “The last few years have been a real whirlwind. When I set up the business, I knew there was an opportunity to build something unique – offering agribusiness, fresh produce and food and drink companies a more palatable approach to recruitment – focused on people not numbers. We’ve grown exceptionally quickly but in a highly sustainable way. Clients like the way we work, which is evident by the repeat business we get from some of the biggest names in the sector. It’s been a great three years and we’re excited about the future of the business and the opportunities that lie ahead.”
