Russell Clements to lead healthcare recruitment investment company, Hunter/Gatherer
Russell Clements, former chief executive of SThree, has been appointed non-executive chairman of Hunter/Gatherer – a company set up to invest in, build and grow healthcare recruitment companies.
The group plans to back healthcare recruitment entrepreneurs creating a complimentary stable of healthcare recruitment businesses.
Hunter/Gatherer's first business Hunter Healthcare, provides executive, non-executive recruitment services and interim provision to the NHS and has reached £14m turnover in just over four years.
During Clements’ time as CEO at SThree, the business grew from twenty offices of which five were overseas, to 64 offices in twenty countries.
Gavin Johnstone, chief executive of Hunter/Gatherer, said, “Russell has vast experience which includes launching, nurturing and fast-tracking recruitment businesses. Put this together with our own specialist healthcare knowledge and networks and we believe the Hunter/Gatherer proposition is truly compelling and will really makes a difference to the sector.”
Clements said, “In the past I’ve talked about working with smaller companies and motivated teams as the environment in which I can make the most positive impact. I’m looking forward to using my 30 years’ of experience to help a growing business, with an energetic and ambitious management team, and create a truly outstanding player in the healthcare recruitment sector.”
