“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.”

Steve Harman

“Their ability to identify and attract people to a relatively unknown business provided us with shortlisted candidates from ‘A’ list strategy houses, rights holders, technology companies and broadcasters. We have since engaged Nolan Partners on another C-level mandate and look forward to maintaining our long term partnership.”

Chris Buckley

“As a truly international business we are delighted with our hire – a German national who was working for an Italian company, living in the UK and now happily relocated to Gibraltar. Their ability to excite potential candidates was first class and I would have no hesitation in recommending them.”

Henry Birch

"Nolan Partners during the whole search process were partners in every sense of the word.  They clearly know the wider sport industry intimately, and brought a high level of professionalism and integrity to the process. I would not hesitate in recommending them to other sports organisations."

Chris Parsons

“Paul Nolan, we find, is a consummate professional and we are currently using his organisation on more assignments and are very pleased with progress-to - date. We are very much enjoying working with him.”
