About Alan

I graduated in law and qualified as a chartered accountant after training with Grant Thornton. Post qualification I pursued an accountancy career within a small accountancy firm where I developed a specialism working with ambitious growing SMEs.

I had a successful career change into recruitment at one of the leading recruitment firms in the accountancy recruitment market which I subsequently helped float in 1996. (Robert Walters Associates)

With 31 years experience in recruitment and executive search I have well established professional contacts across the UK . I am actively involved in running searches for Non Exec roles. I would like to think I am considered as both a successful recruiter and a trusted adviser to many. I have held Board level appointments at two listed recruitment consultancies and also led the management team at a boutique search firm as well as owning my own businesses for many years. I am an active networker being a Director Consultant in BNI. I am seeking a Non Executive and/or Trustee position
