“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.”

 

Paul Barber
Chief Executive of Brighton and Hove Albion Football Club

“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.”

Danny Sillman, Chief Executive Officer of Relevent

“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.”

Barry Siff
Former Board President, USA Triathlon

“I tell everyone that the search we did together was the best recruitment of talent in my career.”

Stacey Allaster
Chief Executive, Professional Tennis

“Nolan Partners helped us hire our CEO / Sporting Director. Their expertise and knowledge is first-rate. We were thrilled with the process, thoroughness, communication, and outcomes.”

Greg Kerfoot, Majority Owner of Vancouver Whitecaps
