Ralph Topping
Chairman of the Scottish Premier League and former Group Chief Executive of William Hill Plc

“As a truly international business we are delighted with our hire – a German national who was working for an Italian company, living in the UK and now happily relocated to Gibraltar. Their ability to excite potential candidates was first class and I would have no hesitation in recommending them.”

Henry Birch
Group CEO, Rank Plc, Former CEO, William Hill Online

“Their ability to identify and attract people to a relatively unknown business provided us with shortlisted candidates from ‘A’ list strategy houses, rights holders, technology companies and broadcasters. We have since engaged Nolan Partners on another C-level mandate and look forward to maintaining our long term partnership.”

Chris Buckley

“I appointed Nolan Partners to assist on a challenging mandate to hire a Director of CRM to lead our teams across Gibraltar and Israel. Not only did we hire someone with the perfect skill set, they really understood the company and department culture to attract the right person, which was critical. I would have no hesitation in recommending them.”
