Directorbank gathers pace as market recovers
In this context, private equity recruitment specialist Directorbank is experiencing a growing pipeline of assignments for fresh executive & non-executive directors as well as senior sales and operations roles requiring specialist skills and experience.
After completing a successful refinancing exercise which saw the management team take a major stake, Directorbank is strategically poised for further growth. The business has already made several pivotal changes including a London office move to Covent Garden, continued development of its Germany office, and significant investment in its research capabilities. Christine Kruger has recently joined as Head of Research from Lygon Group. She is supported by new hire Faye Middleton from Berwick Partners (a division of Odgers Berndtson) and a team of 3 talented researchers.
Director George Heppenstall stated, "Such a strong research team significantly boosts Directorbank's mapping capabilities and provides our consultants with a continuous stream of impressive candidates - both proven and emerging talent. This enables us to respond faster to a brief with the best possible talent solutions available in the market."
Such investment has provided the firm with the resource and expertise to win and deliver a growing number of retained assignments, particularly from entrepreneurial private firms and plc's requiring high calibre directors to implement change and drive growth momentum.
Directorbank is now seeking proven search consultants to help deliver pre-deal and portfolio recruitment solutions to its significant private equity client base. New hires can expect a supportive and dynamic environment and - for those with real talent and ambition - the opportunity to progress to leadership positions quickly. Mirroring this, Filipa Moreira has recently been promoted to Head of Consumer & Retail Practice.
