I work in recruitment so I know how poor some recruiters can be, Equity Chair delivered exactly the service they said they would, on time and with professionalism.  I really would recommend them.

Andy Hogarth, Staffline Group plc

Having worked with Cindy over many years when we were both at different organisations I was well aware of the quality of her work and so when we were looking for a new Advisory Board Member she was the obvious choice. It was a difficult assignment as we had a very specific requirement in mind and the target pool is small and specialised.  Cindy very quickly grasped the nature of our requirements and importantly the particular skill set we were seeking. In few days she produced a short list and we very quickly zeroed in on our preferred candidate.  Cindy’s capacity to identify and engage with high quality candidates was outstanding and we have been delighted, but not surprised by the outcome. We would have no hesitation in recommending her and her team.

Total Capital Partners worked with EquityChair to recruit a Chairman for our recent investment in Meter Provida.  Cindy Casciani was careful to listen and understand what was needed not only in terms of skills and experience but also cultural fit.  She provided an excellent short-list of candidates, all of a very high calibre. Throughout the process, Cindy provided continued support as we made our decision.  We were very impressed with the service provided – and we would recommend it to others. We will certainly look to work with EquityChair in the future.”

Lyceum Capital works with Equity Chair on a regular basis. Most recently on Curocare, we engaged with them at an early stage in our review of the market for potential Chairman, Cindy identified and introduced us to a number of interesting candidates and led to an efficient appointment as the deal closed. We shall certainly use Equity Chair on future opportunities.

Simon Hitchcock, Partner, Lyceum Capital

I was introduced to Cindy Casciani at EquityChair as part of my networking to build my non executive portfolio. Over this time, Cindy has been in touch regularly with a number of interesting and relevant private equity backed deals, some of which were very early stage and did not progress to completion. However, Cindy was incredibly professional in her management of the process, giving me very regular status updates.

Earlier this year, she approached me on behalf of Lyceum Capital to discuss the Chairmanship of CuroCare, ahead of the deal completing. As Cindy and I had been in touch a number of times since our first meeting, she had a very good understanding of my skills and business interests. CuroCare is in a space that interests me and I could see instantly how my skills and experience would add value to the business and complement the management team. I am delighted to be Chairman of this great business.

I would strongly recommend Cindy Casciani and EquityChair. Her experience of working in private equity has enabled her to genuinely understand the requirements of both the investor and the management when recruiting a Chairman. Cindy also understands that the completion of a private equity transaction can take time and that it is of the utmost importance to keep the lines of communication open between the potential Chairman, the business and the investor throughout the process.

Cindy’s open and easy style also made it very enjoyable to work with her.

Neil Gillis, Chairman of CuroCare

We contacted Cindy Casciani at EquityChair to help us find a Chairman for a business we had identified as an excellent investment opportunity. Cindy understood our requirements, in terms of sector knowledge and previous private equity Chairman experience but also in terms of the character and chemistry fit required. We were delighted that Clive Williams was introduced as he added a great deal of value to the deal process and has subsequently joined the board of Instant Offices as Chairman since the deal completed. We would have no hesitation in working with Cindy and EquityChair again.


Luke Jones, MML Capital

Having decided to go plural, a colleague recommended that I meet Cindy Casciani. After an initial interview, Cindy worked closely with me to identify what strengths I could bring to a Board and what industries would most benefit from my experience. I found this process very beneficial. Cindy then identified a number of possible Board opportunities before settling on the Chairman role at Optilan Ltd. After my initial interviews with the management and the PE investor in Optilan, Cindy stayed in close touch with both myself and the Company providing valuable feedback to both parties. I am delighted to say that I was appointed Chairmanof Optilan Ltd on 1 October.
