“I appointed Nolan Partners to assist on a challenging mandate to hire a Director of CRM to lead our teams across Gibraltar and Israel. Not only did we hire someone with the perfect skill set, they really understood the company and department culture to attract the right person, which was critical. I would have no hesitation in recommending them.”
