“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. We believe they are the number one firm in sports recruitment and would recommend them to any Sports organisation to handle their senior appointments.”
“It was a pleasure to work with Nolan Partners. Their research on the brief was impressive and insightful. They listened and then produced an imaginative long list of excellent candidates. They were constantly helpful during the interviewing process and then helped effectively to land the chosen candidate. I was delighted by their reach and support.”
“We could not be more delighted in the process. The search was rigorous, organized, thorough, and efficient. Nolan Partners’ management of the search committee and the board was immaculate. We could not be more enthused with our selection. Diversity was obviously just as important to them as it was to us. We were also impressed with their geographic breadth: Nolan Partners attracted and assessed candidates in the US, UK, Europe, and Australia. I highly recommend Nolan Partners for your next search.”
“The LMA would also like to thank their specialist recruitment firm Nolan Partners for finding us such a first class candidate. Their knowledge and understanding of the football business proved to be invaluable.”
“Having previously worked successfully with Nolan Partners to hire senior members of our Executive Management team, we chose to engage them to manage an international search to find a new Chief Executive Officer at a critical stage in our company’s growth. With potential candidates engaged across 14 countries covering our target markets of broadcast, sports, technology, media and entertainment we had an excellent array and choice of high calibre candidates on our shortlist. Nolan Partners knowledge of our company and the complexities of the market place were evident and vital. However, most importantly they understood the type of individual we were looking for and the cultural fit with the organisation. The board are very pleased with our appointment of a top class operator who has worked across all the key disciplines, lived in four continents and has relocated to join us in London. We will use Nolan Partners again if we make external senior management appointments.”
