The Invest|R Group appoints new Group CEO
Williams has over 15 years’ experience investing in and managing recruitment and professional services businesses and brings a wealth of leadership expertise to the Group. Previously, he was Managing Partner at Odgers Berndtson where he led the Financial Services practice and Managing Partner at Management Consulting Group PLC, where he completed and managed a number of professional services investments.
Williams joints The Invest|R Group from Refined Selection, which has a complementary focus on the Executive Search sector and will operate as a sister company to The Invest|R Group.
Tristan Ramus, Non-Executive Director of The Invest|R Group said “Luke is an exceptional leader, with an excellent track record of building value in the recruitment sector. We are very pleased to have him on board.”
Commenting on his new role, Williams said, “I am incredibly excited by the journey that The Invest|R Group is on and am delighted to have been appointed as CEO. We have a strong group of businesses, which are well-placed in their respective markets and are on rapid growth trajectories. There is a clear opportunity to add real, meaningful value to recruitment businesses, which otherwise would not have the benefit of scale that comes from a group platform. I am looking forward to working with the Board and our network of CEOs on the next stage of The Invest|R Group journey.”
As Group CEO, Williams will lead The Invest|R Group’s ambitious growth plans, which are focussed on continued organic and inorganic growth and the realisation of an exit within three years.
The Invest|R Group is a £50m turnover, management-led recruitment group, pursuing a buy and build strategy in the professional services sectors. The Group currently consists of seven brands: Matt Burton Associates, SF Group, 360 Resourcing, TJC, CV Know How, SJC and Exsurgo.
