“Nolan Partners is outstanding. They placed our CEO at USA Cycling. They were a pleasure to work with. Nolan Partners has a superior scope and track record in sports and entertainment.”

Bob Stapleton
Board Chair of USA Cycling

“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.”

Danny Sillman, Chief Executive Officer of Relevent

“We’ve partnered with Nolan Partners several times and look forward to working with them again. They are trusted advisors.”
