My role as Managing Director is incredibly varied but much of my time is spent working with Boards to deliver senior executive and non-executive appointments as well as leading Board Development processes.
In 1999, I started working in recruitment and have undertaken a significant number of executive, trustee and non-executive appointments across a range of sectors – from charities and social enterprises to students’ unions, membership organisations and in colleges and major universities. I also have over eight years’ previous experience as a charity trustee with the Evelina Children’s Heart Organisation and Working Families.
I’m passionate about leadership and working with forward thinking organisations to recruit great leaders. Our recent leadership report talks more about our approach.
With a black belt in karate, a passion for athletics and a big fan of anything Japanese – I can’t wait for the next Olympics in Tokyo 2020! I probably won’t make the cut – not for the want of trying – but that’ll be an incredible occasion.
Talk to me about:
“It has been a professional and personal pleasure to work with Grant and Jennifer during a very exciting time of growth for our Charity. The service we received was beyond expectations and excellent in every way. Having an active, engaged, knowledgeable and skillful Board is a vital ingredient to charitable success and we now have that thanks to Peridot.”
