Retained executive search business Kingsley Gate Partners have announced Andy Davies as a senior partner. He will be based in the firm’s London office.
With more than 25 years of leadership and executive search experience working across a range of publicly quoted, private equity backed and privately owned businesses, Andy has worked primarily at the board level within the sectors of engineering & manufacturing, financial services and technology. He is also a trusted board advisor and has been running the UK’s pre-eminent development programmes (for prospective FTSE directors) for over 10 years, in conjunction with three world-class partner firms.
“We are thrilled to have Andy join our team,” stated Nancy Albertini, senior partner and office of the CEO. “Our continued global growth into this key market strengthens our ability to deliver above and beyond the expectations of our international clients. Andy is an extraordinary executive search leader, recognised throughout the industry for his ability to connect organisations with game-changing Board executives.”
Prior to joining Kingsley Gate Partners, Andy was the managing partner & head of the CEO & board practice at other leading executive search firms. He has expertise in all leadership functions, including Chair and NED, financial, legal and company secretariat, as well as CEO and CIO.
“I have been working with the boards of some of the world’s most innovative and disruptive companies for most of my career and have been questioning, for a while now, why my own industry was so resistant to change and creating world-class, proprietary technology,” Andy added. “Finally, I have found a firm that has dedicated itself to transforming the executive search industry, whilst promoting the core values that shape company culture and provide our clients with exceptional service.”
