“I’ve worked with Nolan Partners on multiple searches across verticals and properties. I couldn’t recommend them more highly.”
“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.”
“Nolan Partners have just completed an assignment with Honda Racing F1 Team to help us find a Marketing Director. This was a key appointment to our management team and we are delighted with both the approach taken by Nolan Partners and the final candidate they found for us. We really liked their specific focus and knowledge of the commercial sports sector – and would definitely use them again.”
“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.”
“Besides the strong talent pool, I perhaps valued most their ability to be true consultants with whom I could mentally spar about the structure and the overall industry… I can strongly say you’re considering the right firm.”
