Malti has over 30 years’ experience in human resources with the last 15 years spent as group HR director for private equity-backed businesses and FTSE 250 companies, latterly with the world no.1 global parenting company. Malti will add to and develop Barracuda’s existing senior board contacts bringing her functional expertise to bear in delivering exceptional talent in the ever-changing retail landscape.
Barracuda's joint managing directors Jamie Zuppinger and Justin Linger commented, “We are delighted to have engaged Sue, being someone we have known and admired for a long time. Her broad and deep experience of both the Plc and private equity world and her extensive network will complement Barracuda’s unparalleled retail expertise and enable us to be the first choice adviser for retail, digital and consumer facing businesses wrestling with their talent agenda.” They added: “with Sue strengthening Barracuda Search and working alongside our other divisions Barracuda Digital, Barracuda Interim and G2exec, we believe that we have strengthened our position as the largest and strongest integrated retail practice of any search organisation based in the UK and are also unique in having two former retail plc board directors actively working on searches on behalf of our clients.”
Radcliffe joins G2exec, Barracuda Group’s mid-tier search division, with a strong and demonstrable track record within search and a passion for the retail sector. Having started his career as a researcher in a leading property executive search firm, he rose to principal consultant before moving to a retail-focused search business working with numerous retailers.
Matt Parry, director of G2exec, said, “We are also delighted to welcome James as part of the expanding G2exec team. With G2exec being committed to recruiting the next generation of leaders of the retail sector, James will play a key role in bringing real impact to our clients in their search for future leadership talent.”
Jamie Zuppinger added “G2exec’s expansion will be crucial to help guide Barracuda Group in our next stages of growth and to keep both our domestic and international business accelerating as unrivalled retail, digital and consumer specialists. James’s extensive experience, as well as his proven eye for talent will make him an indispensable addition to our team.”
