Square One appoints managing director
Square One has appointed Adam Breacher as its managing director. He joined the company in June 2007 as a recruitment consultant and has always been an integral part of the Square One team.
Since joining the company, Breacher (pictured right) has achieved nine promotions, with the most recent seeing him become the company’s MD. In his new role, Breacher will be focused on developing the company’s presence in Europe and North America. He also wants to identify new markets that the UK contract teams can evolve into. He added, “From an Operational perspective, I want to identify how we can get more value add from the hugely experienced managers we have in these areas. This will benefit the sales floor as well as give those involved in the back office management, the opportunity to grow and keep learning. Overall I want to continue to build on the success that we have achieved previously, and continue to offer people at Square One the chance to grow.”
Discussing how the industry has changed since he first joined, he commented, “[There has been a] big shift in the stability of the client relationships we hold, sales floor now has everyone trying to win 360 business. Far more professional workplace now and there is more structure than previously. People know where they stand with the management team as they are all really approachable. Sales people are more accountable for their own success. Business is ready to take the next step.”
Tim Harlow (pictured left) is also celebrating his 10th anniversary with the company. Looking to the future of Square One, he said, “Reputation is everything for a business and we work hard to ensure that we gain the respect and appreciation of our clients and candidates alike, and I know we try our best daily to uphold that. It has a deep history here of nearly 30 years of recruiting which we cherish. I am proud that so far we have managed to work with tens of thousands of individuals during our tenure and remember that we must ensure that each and every assignment remains special to us.
“As a business, we are on a journey to becoming the largest independent IT recruiter in the UK and we are focused on becoming the largest through our organic growth plans and training academies. We are absolutely committed to providing a hugely rewarding, straight talking, ambitious and opportunity-full environment for those people who want that little bit more out of life and are prepared to go out and get it.”
