“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.”
