Richard is Head of the Industry Practice at HW.  He has extensive knowledge and experience in leading senior assignments across the construction, infrastructure, manufacturing, transport and business services sectors.

Richard has 12 years’ experience within the executive search industry having previously held senior positions with 2 major global firms.  Prior to this he spent 6 years in the Royal Navy before working as a fixed income trader at UBS.

There has also been new additions to both the Financial Services and global Strategy teams, again based out of the new London office.

CEO John Wakeford said “London remains an important part of our strategic growth plan as many of our global clients have a significant presence in the geography. We continue to see an ever increasing demand for our services and will look to both organic hires and specific merger and acquisition opportunities as we expand our footprint.”

HW now employs 30 people in its search and professional interim business.
