Search Consultancy has appointed Jonathan Abell as managing director for its Energy, Scientific and new Procurement & Supply Chain discipline.
Abell joins Search having spent almost 25 years in the sector. He started his career with Michael Page in the mid 90s as a recruitment consultant and specialised in establishing new disciplines and leading growth, and has focused on supply chain and procurement since 2002.
Taking advantage of his track record for growing teams and building markets, and his experience and network within the business area, Search is looking to Jonathan to create and lead their new supply chain and procurement discipline. Additionally he will take responsibility for Search’s growing energy and scientific teams across the UK.
Jonathan will be supporting UK businesses with a specific focus on executive and management positions. He is looking to grow presence across Search’s network of regional offices as well as establishing a presence in the Midlands, an engine room for the UK’s Supply Chain and Procurement market.
“I have joined a very talented team at Search at a very exciting point in time,” Jonathan said, “Under the stewardship of our new CEO Richard Vickers, I am very much looking forward to working alongside the team and supporting the next phase of Search’s growth story.
“We have a real opportunity to carve a niche and grow the Search name among the Supply Chain and Procurement community, and I am relishing the opportunity to build this new area and grow the team across all areas of the country.”
