“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.”

“I’ve worked with Nolan Partners on multiple searches across verticals and properties. I couldn’t recommend them more highly.”

Al Guido, President of San Francisco 49ers and CEO of Elevate

“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.”
