“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.”

“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.”

“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.”

“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.”

“…we had been using several companies to help us with the recruitment of key executives. I was not impressed with the quality of candidates we were obtaining through what were major organisations in London and decided that Nolan Partners were worth trying. The level of attention we got as clients, and we are hard to please, was astounding. The quality of candidates with whom we were presented for our recently vacant Brand and Marketing Director position gave us a happy problem – they were all superb! The successful candidate has just attended our senior management conference and delighted our team of 70 key employees. He is proving to be a great cultural fit. We are currently using Nolan Partners on more assignments and are very pleased with progress-to-date. We are very much enjoying working with them.”
