“Nolan Partners during the whole search process were partners in every sense of the word.  They clearly know the wider sport industry intimately, and brought a high level of professionalism and integrity to the process. I would not hesitate in recommending them to other sports organisations.”

Chris Parsons
Former VP International of the NFL

“The British Horseracing Authority engaged with Nolan Partners to help us find a new Chief Executive Officer and after conducting a search, Nolan Partners presented a strong long list of 11 candidates which was whittled down to a shortlist of four. The successful candidate was up against one of the highest quality Chief Executive fields I have ever come across, with a range of senior leaders from the UK business, consumer and leisure industries. One of the most difficult things was saying thank you but no to three of them. All were outstanding and the appointed Chief Executive was up against an incredibly competitive field.”

Steve Harman
Chairman, British Horseracing Authority

“Over the last two years we have worked with Nolan Partners on the appointment of a Sporting Director, a Main Board Non Executive Director and a number of other senior management appointments. We have found them extremely thorough, professional and good fun to work with.”

Paul Barber
Chief Executive of Brighton and Hove Albion Football Club and Former Non-Executive Director of Tottenham Hotspur Football Club

“Paul Nolan, we find, is a consummate professional and we are currently using his organisation on more assignments and are very pleased with progress-to – date. We are very much enjoying working with him.”

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

“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.”

CEO, Supponor
