My pri­vate equi­ty back­ers and I worked with Cindy to find a new Chair after the busi­ness had been through a pri­ma­ry buy out. I had a par­tic­u­lar remit for some­one who was high­ly peo­ple and coach­ing ori­en­tat­ed, but also pas­sion­ate about what we do as an edu­ca­tion busi­ness. Cindy rapid­ly helped find such peo­ple, and clear­ly high­light­ed the key rel­e­vant expe­ri­ence and areas of inter­est. In a quick and smooth process we were able to iden­ti­fy and secure some­one who will add huge val­ue to our plans.

Equi­ty Chair recent­ly helped us to replace the head of our RiskCo, a crit­i­cal non-exec posi­tion. We were delight­ed that Cindy found a can­di­date with the detailed skills required for a reg­u­lat­ed role but also a real inter­est in sup­port­ing the social sec­tor. Equi­ty­Chair were easy to work with, the process was han­dled in a thor­ough­ly effi­cient man­ner and we felt that Cindy worked very well with all of the can­di­dates. We would cer­tain­ly work with them again.

Hav­ing recent­ly tak­en over as Non Exec­u­tive Chair of Nexus Infra­struc­ture plc (AIM;NEXS) I asked Cindy to help me recruit a new Non Exec­u­tive Direc­tor. We agreed a chal­leng­ing per­son spec­i­fi­ca­tion (list­ed expe­ri­ence, M&A expe­ri­ence, poten­tial Chair of Audit Com­mit­tee and expe­ri­ence in a high growth envi­ron­ment), and in a very short space of time Cindy estab­lished a long-list which result­ed in three can­di­dates being inter­viewed — all three were great can­di­dates and all very suit­able. I was delight­ed when Clare Lacey accept­ed our offer to join the Board.

The process could not have been quick­er or more effec­tive. Great out­come, thank you Cindy and Equi­ty Chair.
