Argyll Scott appoints head of financial services
Leeson joined the business at the start of the year, following the acquisition of Acumen Resources UK by Argyll Scott. His role as MD of Acumen Resources will be incorporated into his new position.
Leeson has a wealth of experience within the Financial Service hiring market. Prior to joining specialist actuarial recruiter, Acumen Resources, Steve was at Morgan McKinley for 12 years, rising to Operations Director for the Financial Services permanent division and then Operations Director for New Business.
Caroline Hudson, MD Commercial & Professional at Argyll Scott commented, “We are thrilled to have Steve come on board to lead and really drive forward the expansion of our financial services practice. He has worked in the sector at a senior level for a number of years and knows the market inside out.
“In the space of four short years, Argyll Scott has followed an impressive growth trajectory, opening four offices in four countries, growing from zero to 100 consultants and successfully expanding its service offering across a number of key business functions. Steve’s appointment is a great example of us bringing on board some stellar recruitment talent to help us achieve the next phase in our development plans.”
Leeson said, “I’m excited to be taking over the leadership of the financial services permanent division at Argyll Scott and I’m looking forward to working with such an experienced team. We are in the perfect position to fully capitalise on an increasingly confident financial services sector, delivering the best talent to our clients and providing great opportunities for those looking to make a career move this year.”
