I’ve been working in recruitment for over 30 years, having held senior positions at Hays and Robert Walters before taking the role of CEO at Lorien in 2008. I led the senior team that put Lorien on the map as the UK’s largest pure-play tech-focused Managed Service and RPO provider with revenues in excess of £500m.
In 2016, I set up a consulting firm focused on supporting recruitment leaders in reaching their organisational goals and creating maximum value from their businesses. This led to me working with over 20 businesses in varying capacities, from Board Advisory, Strategy Consultant, and Chairman.
Opus started off as one of my consulting clients, until, in 2019, I was approached by Amy Golding, Opus CEO, and Darren Ryemill, a majority shareholder at the time. I became the Interim CEO to cover for Amy while she started a family, and, when she came back in January 2021, I stepped into the role of Chairman of Opus Talent Solutions.
I love Opus for its ability to adapt to changing markets, and its phenomenal strength in creating new partnerships and building on existing client relationships. Opus is in the exciting markets of Tech and Renewables, both of which are disrupting and transforming the worlds we live in. We provide an exceptional platform for our wonderful colleagues to build varied, purposeful, and rewarding global careers.Back to people index
