Bob is our 'go to' search specialist when we're looking to hire for specific assignments. In particular, he saves us time by managing a very efficient process. He understands our firm and culture well. As a result, we meet a small number of highly relevant individuals and hire successfully. It works perfectly for us.
Managing Partner, UK PE Firm
Executive recruitment is unfortunately beset with people often more motivated by short term financial reward as opposed to client advice and satisfaction. Bob is a very refreshing exception. He's knowledgeable, honest, calm and respectful; and I would recommend Bob strongly to anyone looking to leverage the help of an executive recruiter.
Partner, US PE Firm
Bob introduced me to my current firm and was thoroughly professional at all stages of the process. I found him to be approachable, honest and attentive which are rare attributes in the headhunting space. I would not hesitate in recommending Bob to any firm looking to hire or individual looking to make a move.

Deputy Head of Corporate Finance
I have had the pleasure to work with Bob recently and can highly recommend him to both prospective firms and candidates. He genuinely understands the specific requirements of his clients and excels at tailoring the right solution for all parties. On a more personal level, Bob is smart, energetic and fun to interact with.
