Organisations talk about finding quality, top talent and getting the best people on board to deliver strategic outcomes, yet few address the basic fact:  UK average annual sales stuff turnover is around 30%* (15% UK average across all industries**).


This is the equivalent to your entire sales team being hired and trained every three years and that's expensive.

Leaders deliver strategic outcomes by creating the conditions where people choose new actions. The choices are voluntary, they are made by people who see a new landscape, new opportunities and new options. You can’t make people change. But as a leader, you can create an environment where they choose to.

The best leaders know how to motivate teams that can win work from today's empowered customers with more than price as their leverage.

I am a Recruiter with over 25 years of experience, passionate about targeting elite, Director level sales professionals within Engineering and Manufacturing. I find unique individuals. Leaders who are committed to group effort, because that’s what makes a team work and a company more profitable.

I work with C-Suite and Senior Executives within SMEs, Large and Corporate organisations who are looking to build dynamic, high performing and collaborative sales teams from the top in order to deliver stable sales excellence and business growth.


If you are:

  • Frustrated by sales leadership that is focused on reporting about the past rather than the growth of the future

  • Challenged by a revolving door of Account Managers who just don’t stick or BDMs who are order takers rather than sales makers because they’re not being led in the best way

  • Curious about how tapping into a dedicated and exclusive senior sales network might benefit your business

  • Confident your organisation has a culture that genuinely enables growth for the ones that think differently and can entice the best


My expertise is your solution - Delivering sales growth via Senior Sales Recruitment.

My passion is people and those in key positions that can pave the way for more growth because they are successful in their roles. With this in mind, you can be assured that I have more than enough strategic business reason to deliver at every level as well as an emotive one.

First is You. You are First - This isn't just a strap line. It's what I live and breathe. It makes my success, your success.
