"Stephen carried out an executive search project for me while I was Non-Executive Director of a plastics company. We were looking for a Sales and Procurement Director who would play a critical role in the planned tripling in size of the business. Stephen's work was exemplary. He not only found a number of excellent candidates, he helped us with the evaluation of strengths and weaknesses, contributed constructively to our assessment of the individuals and speedily helped us resolve any issues which arose. At all times I felt his focus was on what was right for our company and not on his fee. The candidate he placed with us was a great success. I would not hesitate to use Stephen again."
