When Sustrans, the charity that promotes cycling and walking, needed a new National Director, Chief Executive, Xavier Brice, invited Hanover Fox to support the appointment.
“Hanover Fox have a good track record in both transport and the third sector. They showed great interest and insight into us as an organisation and I knew from previous experience they would manage the project well.
“My brief was for someone who is comfortable influencing government, capable of leading campaigns and experienced in getting things done. I wanted to widen the pool to get diverse candidates.
“Hanover Fox found a good cross-section of people and after initial screening they presented a longlist of 10. We took four to interview. Three of those were excellent – fully appointable, which is a good place to be. I’m very pleased with the outcome.
“I think Hanover Fox are very approachable. They’re not afraid to offer an opinion. I get a real sense of experience and judgement. I would recommend Hanover Fox and in fact, we have already used them on another senior appointment.”
