We've helped many wonderful companies and candidates over the years. Here's what our client's say about us:
This was my first experience of Mallory Partners. I’d spoken with them a few times in recent years, but either the role or the timing was not right. But this one was. I liked that they listened to my career and what my priorities were. They shared not only details of the role, but what the university really wanted, the people, values and culture. They were up front about the..."
“Mallory Partners were excellent. It is the best experience I had with a headhunting firm. “I get a lot of approaches by LinkedIn and theirs really stood out because it was both very detailed, but it actually also left me thinking – which was intriguing. I was happy in my job at the time so put it to one side, but it stayed in my mind and a few days..."
I hadn’t heard of Mallory Partners before they placed me in my current position. I’ve always instinctively leaned towards the larger recruitment firms but, when you’re looking for a particular role type that’s what you search for, and their name came up against this particular one. From the word go they were very responsive. Martin was always accessible and provided me with one of the most detailed specifications I’ve ever..."
Horizon Private Equity has a portfolio of 14 companies today and we are an active investor, making two to three new ones each year. We generally need to hire around 10 board level positions each year for the new deals and to strengthen existing teams, as the companies we invest in are high growth. Mallory Partners understands our business model through the full investment lifecycle very well and they have..."
As a candidate: “I was contacted Mallory Partners directly from a recommendation. I found them to be open, honest and straightforward to work with. They took a genuine interest in me as a candidate, more so than other agencies, and the nature of the role was made very clear. The interview process went very smoothly and they were always accessible, preparing me for the interviews in detail and maintaining contact..."
When Chris first contacted me about the role of European Sales Lead for HyperGrid, I was careful to not get excited too soon. HyperGrid is a start-up based in San Jose, California, providing a cloud management platform. While start-ups are exciting, they naturally come with greater risk – so I did extensive due diligence on them, both on the phone and in person. Throughout this time I appreciated Chris’s constant..."
“Having worked in private equity for a number of years, at board level, I found myself in the common position, post-acquisition by a larger corporate, where I no longer had the level of authority and decision-making capability that I was used to. Open discussions were had about the fact that I wanted to move on and, around this time, Chris made contact with me in respect of a couple of..."
“Chris Jennings, Head of the IT & Technology practice at Mallory Partners placed me into my new role as Sales & Marketing Director at The Bunker, part of Cyberfort Group, and has subsequently assisted me in restructuring my team. Having decided to take a step out of permanent roles early last year, I’d just started my second interim contract when Chris approached me about a possible full time role. I..."
Mallory Partners were engaged by the university to manage their search process. I found them to be professional, committed and genuinely knowledgeable about both the organisation and the role. They were clear about the needs of the university and how my experience and aspirations matched the needs of their client. However, what really stood out for me was their honesty and their excellent communication skillsThey managed my expectations extremely well;..."
“Both Martin and Jeremy are hugely personable and easy to work with. They worked in a collegiate and supportive way to understand us as an organisation and how to articulate what we were looking for – honing the brief for both roles to ensure we attracted the right candidates. They proposed a process to us and were flexible in adapting to the way we worked and meeting our timeframes. I..."
“I was urged to call Mallory Partners by a trusted former colleague when the University decided to look for an Innovation Director. At the time we had already gone to market for a Commercial Director too. At the first meeting I was struck by how intently Martin and Jeremy listened and the perceptive nature of their questions. By this point, we’d had some initial interviews for the Commercial Director role..."
A former colleague of mine was approached by Mallory Partners, and he recommended me to them. I met with Jeremy and we quickly built a mutual understanding of what I was looking for and how they could help. They are very professional. Jeremy has good, strong relationships with key decisionmakers and influencers at chairman level and in the Private Equity world and, as I was coming out of a corporate..."
“Crossword Cybersecurity have been growing rapidly and in February 2018 we took the decision to increase our Sales team by four. We set ourselves the challenge of having all four start on the same day in early April. Finding four great Business Development Managers with the right experience, in such a short period of time meant that we needed to turn to specialist recruiters and our first call was to..."
Mallory Partners is the most proactive and engaged recruitment agency I’ve worked with. I responded to an advert they’d posted on LinkedIn and, within a week, Martin had followed up with me and arranged an initial interview. He gave me really useful feedback about how I positioned myself, not just in the context of this particular opportunity, but more generally too – which I found valuable. It continued to be..."
My experience of working with Mallory partners to help plan and find my next career move has been excellent. They have taken the time to get to know me, what my ambitions are, where my strengths are and have completed thorough due diligence of my track record, ensuring they put forward strong candidates for their clients. Through their connections, they have identified good opportunities for me and have committed as..."
Over the years, Jeremy and Martin have presented me with a number of interesting and relevant private equity backed CFO opportunities, the most recent of which resulted in my placement as CFO of IdVerde. They managed the process effectively, giving constructive feedback and advice at each stage leading to my appointment. I recommend Mallory Partners highly for their intelligent, yet practical and engaging approach to executive search...."
I’ve been with my current business for nine years and it’s been a highly successful period in a market that hasn’t seen much growth. As a consequence I’ve been approached by head-hunters pretty regularly, on behalf of competitors, but none of them were of interest until Chris called. The fit was great with my experience and Gradwell sounded exactly what I was looking for in a next move. Looking back,..."
Mallory Partners approached me discretely and professionally for a Group Financial Controller role with a Global Cloud-based services provider. Having been briefed accurately on the company and culture, Jeremy managed the process very smoothly through to my offer and acceptance of the role. Subsequent to my joining they have continued to be supportive, making regular calls to ensure that everything is working out well. I would recommend them highly...."
“I’ve known Martin and Jeremy for many years. They have contacted me before but I’ve never been available. However they approached me about an interim CFO role in a private equity-backed business and the timing was absolutely right. It was the first of three placements I’ve accepted through Mallory Partners, in succession. “For the first role, I had a good brief from Martin and met the client initially on a..."
“I’d used a number of agencies prior to Mallory Partners. They reached out to me on a couple of occasions, including for the interim role I am now in. It was a typically quick process, as interim recruitment tends to be. Organisations who need an interim need the right person in fast, so the interview process is truncated and is more about you as an individual – the agency checks..."
“Having had an extremely positive previous experience with Mallory Partners as a candidate, they were my first choice when I need to recruit two senior directors for Bureau Veritas. As a candidate I found them to be responsive, professional and genuinely interested in me as a candidate – they kept me informed throughout and I never once had to chase them, which was a real differentiator to other executive search..."
The first five to ten seconds of any initial call are so important. I don’t know what it was that caught my interest about the call from Martin. It was probably the personal touch – which was really good. He knew quite a bit about me, which was a surprise. They’d obviously done their homework and made me feel like I was the only candidate, which felt good. I didn’t..."
“When we needed to recruit a Chief Technology Officer, we were recommended to Mallory Partners by someone else in private equity who’d used them previously. What immediately struck me was the level of dialogue and responsiveness. They made themselves available whenever we needed them and, no matter how tricky we could be as a client at times, they got straight on with things and kept us informed. I also liked..."
“I saw the role on GAAPweb and contacted Mallory Partners directly although, in the end, after talking through my skillset and experience with them it was actually another role that turned out to be the best fit for me. Although there was subsequently a change of staff during the process, which led to a bit of a delay, they were good to work with and Martin was both honest and..."
What impressed me about Mallory Partners was their attention to the brief that we gave them. This resulted in a list of candidates that were outside the conventional mould, exactly as we had hoped. Beyond that, they did a great job in staying close to the process and helping the negotiations through to a successful conclusion. We will certainly be using their services again!..."
Thanks to Mallory Partners I secured a fantastic role with an exciting & growing business. Throughout my dealings with Martin at Mallory Partners I found him to be professional, well informed and willing to put himself out on my behalf to keep me updated throughout the recruitment process. I’d definitely be happy to recommend this company and look forward to dealing with them again in the future...."
We have worked with Mallory Partners for over 10 years, they understand Private Equity and the importance of identifying and introducing appropriate individuals. They understand the demanding nature of working in a PE backed business and have only presented well-briefed candidates who understand value creation. On several occasions, this has helped us unlock complex deals and also enabled us to deliver some great exits. They have challenged our thinking and..."
I was recently placed by Martin Luise at Mallory Partners. From the very 1st call, Martin was clear and concise. It was clear that both integrity and confidentiality were very important in Martins ways of working. His reference to the brief and description of the role, the company and the culture were very accurate. It was clear that he had a great deal of working knowledge and experience of the..."
I was placed by Martin Luise as Group Financial Controller at Healthcare at Home and my first impressions upon meeting him was the high level of professionalism he demonstrated and his impressive market knowledge. He was an excellent ambassador for his client and could answer a range of questions covering the function and the business as a whole and he was an excellent interviewer asking in depth questions. He really..."
Having worked with Mallory Partners as both a candidate and on the client side, I can highly recommend them. I found them extremely personable to work with, mature and prepared to make a real effort to understand their clients’ businesses and both their clients’ and candidates’ needs. Their approach to assignments is entirely results orientated and they are proactive and innovative in their methods. They listen, ask sensible questions and..."
