“It was a pleasure to work with Nolan Partners. Their research on the brief was impressive and insightful. They listened and then produced an imaginative long list of excellent candidates. They were constantly helpful during the interviewing process and then helped effectively to land the chosen candidate. I was delighted by their reach and support.”

Lex Gold CBE

“The LMA would also like to thank their specialist recruitment firm Nolan Partners for finding us such a first class candidate. Their knowledge and understanding of the football business proved to be invaluable.”

Howard Wilkinson

“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.”
