Nicky Stapleton – Founding Director

Mike Gorman – Founding Director  

“We wanted to create a business that provided a professional service to our clients and candidates, yet afforded a sense of balance to the lives of the people that worked here. And I think we’ve done that. Personally, I still get a buzz out of placing people and winning new business – we all do. But most of all, it’s about creating meaningful and productive relationships. That’s what matters most.”
