"Phil did a great job: he plainly understood our organisation and felt comfortable with our people"

The Not Forgotten

Chief Executive

When The Not Forgotten – a charity which provides entertainment and recreation to those injured in the service of their country – was seeking a new Chief Executive, they chose to engage Hanover Fox to manage this critical appointment.

Chairman David Cowley OBE was extremely happy with the process, right from the start. “Phil did a great job: he plainly understood our organisation and felt comfortable with our people. He is enthusiastic and efficient and able to produce the goods. We had no doubt that he understood what we were looking for. I would definitely go back to Hanover Fox and use them again.”

David was kept appraised of the project at every stage. “Phil is very approachable – I felt in touch with the process throughout and all deadlines were met. He presented us with a short list of credible individuals and did a great job at the final stage, helping us to land our chosen candidate.”

Richard Walker OBE, the new Chief Executive, had an equally positive experience from the candidate viewpoint. “Phil was super-clear on the brief and all our conversations were really open, candid, direct and timely. His brief on the role was clear and really user-friendly and he was very quick in giving feedback after the interviews.”

Richard particularly appreciated Phil’s involvement at the final stage of the process: “I wanted to have some time in the office environment to meet team members and Phil made that happen, which enabled me to make an informed decision when the job offer was made. The whole candidate experience was really neatly knitted together. From my perspective it was brilliant and I would absolutely recommend Hanover Fox to others.”
