Savannah Group expands industrial and digital technology practices

Savannah Group has appointed Simon Musgrave and Phil Coulter as partners within Savannah’s industrial and digital & technology practices respectively.

Musgrave joins the firm as a search partner with over twenty years’ experience in international executive search and ten years working in the energy & transport sectors. He joins from Hoggett Bowers and at Savannah, will be leading its energy & industrial practice with a focus on senior executive and board appointments in energy, transport & capital equipment. Simon also has a particular specialism in the Nordic markets.

Coulter joins Savannah as a search partner from Korn Ferry with almost two decades of experience helping clients hire the next generation of leaders. His expertise lies in the technology market and function. Coulter has led teams across Europe and worked with companies at all stages of growth and development.

John Ellis, CEO of Savannah Group, commented, “I am delighted that Simon and Phil have decided to join Savannah Group. Following our re-branding as Savannah Group in 2017, we have been consolidating our position as a leading challenger to some of the more traditional international executive search brands. Bringing Simon and Phil to Savannah allows us to increase our depth of capability within two of our specialist markets.  

“The move towards a more digital based economy and the realisation of the benefits that can be achieved through a more diverse team will result in businesses looking for new skill sets and different backgrounds to maximise their opportunity to succeed. This requires a forward-thinking approach, and at Savannah we are continually developing and improving our ability to offer exciting, fresh leadership candidates to our clients, despite a fiercely competitive talent market.”

Musgrave said, “What has struck me so far about my time at Savannah is how client focused they are with a natural confidence that enables them to do the right thing. The executive search industry is changing, and Savannah is at the vanguard, providing flexible services, measured counsel and global reach.”

Coulter added, “I am delighted to be joining Savannah, a firm that I believe has the right blend of people, clients and expertise to be at the leading edge as the search industry evolves. Savannah is fortunate to have globally recognised partners and highly experienced researchers within their business and the quality of their work speaks for itself.”
