Managing Partner

Leading a global organisational restructure and sourcing exceptional senior talent in a number of global markets required a search partner who knew consumer markets exceptionally well and worked quickly to understand our brand. MBS was that exceptional partner. They worked with speed, integrity, and outside of hours on many occasions with myself to secure practically a whole new global Leadership team, ranging from Global CEO to a series of Country Head roles.
