Dr Bilal Mohammed, Director of People and Operations – UA92
"Martin and Jeremy are clearly very experienced. They are very different personalities, but they work well together. Along with Samantha, they provided us with a robust challenge that really made us think and helped to hone down exactly what we were looking for. They were also very good at picking up on what we needed and adjusting to how we wanted the process to unfold – which is exactly what they promised us when we first met. We felt constantly engaged, and communication between UA92 and the team at Mallory was brilliant. When I look back at the journey we went on, it was very different to what we had imagined at the start, but in the best possible way! The partnership helped us to secure a new CEO who is absolutely fantastic. We are already working with them again on other senior leadership roles.
I think that Samantha is a huge asset to Mallory Partners. She’s authentic and builds confidence quickly; it felt like working with a colleague I’d known for years. Her level of interest and effort in securing the right candidates for us was exemplary and exceeded other search firms. Her ability to understand the needs of the client and read between the lines, often going above and beyond to facilitate honing in on the right profile and skillset is exceptional. I felt that Samantha really worked hard to get a feel for who we are, our values, and what we were looking for, despite COVID preventing her from actually coming on site and getting to know us in person. She also supported the shortlisted candidates really effectively – three out of five of them specifically mentioned her support in their feedback to us and praised the entire process.
