“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

“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

“We recently worked with Nolan Partners to appoint a new COO, at a critical time of major change for our organisation. Seeking a top class hire with the vision and leadership to help us scale, generate new revenue streams and develop a high performance team we required a comprehensive international search.

We were able to investigate potential candidates across International Federations, Governing Bodies, Rights owners, clubs and brands with candidates originating from Switzerland, South Africa, US, Australia and the UK.  We had an excellent shortlist of high calibre candidates and appointed a highly regarded individual with the capabilities to deliver our goals.

We have since engaged Nolan Partners for another senior executive mandate and I’d be happy to recommend them in the future.”

“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.”
