Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology
When Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology (WMFT), part of a FTSE 100 group, needed a new Managing Director for one of its key businesses, they asked Hanover Fox to run an executive search process.
Amanda Capon, Global Head of HR, says: “We are putting huge investment into Aflex Hose and there has been a great deal of change. We needed a new leader who could bring stability, whilst guiding the company through rapid growth.
“I had worked with Hanover Fox before and was confident they could deliver. The moment we got the longlist I was proved right. As well as getting at least one credible female candidate (which we had asked for), there was a really strong field. That’s not easy to deliver for a technical firm based in the industrial north.
“Hanover Fox helped us to shortlist for interview and then took up references. It was a really smooth process from start to finish and we are delighted with the appointment.
“I found Hanover Fox diligent, thorough, courteous and good at keeping communications open. They take the lion’s share of the work and aren’t afraid of honest conversations when necessary. I would highly recommend them.”
