Board

Saxton Bampfylde has a rapidly growing board practice that operates right across each of the sectors in which we operate and represents over a quarter of all the work we undertake. Led by Executive Chairman and Founder Stephen Bampfylde, over the last thirty years' our practice has assisted boards with recruiting Chairs and Non-executive Directors as well as working with them on board reviews, succession planning and coaching.

Overview

Appointments of seniority require a highly targeted search to identify appropriately qualified senior leaders and it is essential that each of them is then approached by an articulate and well informed search professional. We have specialist researchers who bring the focus and dedicated time required to bring our clients strong and broad lists. As a firm we pride ourselves on our success in advising on diverse appointments and believe we have one of the strongest track records in this respect of any major search firm in the UK.
