We know, from experience, that working at board or senior level in any industry is extremely challenging and demands exceptional qualities.


The decisions involved in making executive appointments are critical. We can make the process a lot easier.

We know exactly what we are looking for, and we can draw on extensive contacts across the entire sector, as well as in the private equity and wider business community.




Still independent after 25 years, WRG is one of the world's best and most innovative creators of live communication, with offices in Europe, Asia and North America. When they urgently needed to find a Global Business Director with particular sector expertise, they turned to Simpson Booth.



Simpson Booth's role

We worked closely with WRG to help them specify the exact requirements for the role in question, before mapping out the market to identify sources for potential candidates. We then applied our search methodology to access suitable individuals and conducted initial face-to-face interviews and psychometric testing on each of the shortlisted candidates. We assisted WRG in making their final decision by attending interviews with the shortlisted candidates.


"The team at Simpson Booth made sure they took time to understand our business and needs for the role and gave us a wide range of candidates to shortlist & interview. They became an extension of our team who were as passionate about getting the right candidate as we were."
