We are happy to have a confidential conversation with you to discuss opportunities at this level
"I was intrigued when Julie O'Neill of McCall introduced me to Adam Buck at Phaidon in the summer of 2013, when Adam was looking to appoint an independent non-executive chairman to work alongside him and the senior leadership team to professionalise the business in anticipation of a planned exit event sometime in the future. Whilst a relatively small, but fast growing recruitment business at the time, I was struck by the clear strategy that Phaidon was following and the enthusiasm and drive of Adam and the management team and their determination to succeed and so jumped at the opportunity to join, which I did in the autumn of 2013. The company continued to grow and thrive and in 2016, Adam achieved a partial exit of the business and the injection of external growth capital, at which point, I stepped down. Since then, Phaidon has continued to deliver rapid and sustained growth in both fees and profitability and I was delighted to return as non-executive chairman in April 2018 when Harry Youtan led a management buy out of the business backed by Quilvest. I had been clear in outlining to Julie what NED roles I was interested in pursuing and the Phaidon role was spot on, as is evident that I am now in my second term as non-executive chairman and looking forward to delivering on our continued, ambitious growth plans."
