Insights from H&P CEO, Jack Hayes

18th November 2022

Take a look at some insights from one of our co-founders, Jack Hayes, and hear what he had to say about H&P growth into new markets and sector areas, and particularly on our expansion into the Financial Services markets.

“When setting up H&P our plan was never to remain specializing in one sector. We always had ambitious plans to grow all sophisticated markets across the STEM sectors.”

“Our initial plan was to tackle private practice within the law firms in the DACH and Benelux regions and since then we’ve expanded into London and New York. We’ve also introduced an in-house legal practice so that we can provide our candidates with a fully comprehensive market overview.”

“Since then, we’ve been developing a successful Financial Services practice. This team covers both the Investment Banking world as well as Private Equity. Predominantly anything transaction related within M&A and leverage finance. Our client base we work with is everything from large bulge bracket investment banks all the way to small-cap private equity funds.”

“Our plan was never to remain a boutique executive search firm. We always wanted to scale the brand and go into neighboring geographies and specialisms. We’re already in the infant stages of developing a tax, compliance and also an accounting and finance practice. Looking further into the future, we’ve already got our eyes on additional markets within professional services. We want to provide a comprehensive overview on all recruitment matters within executive search for our clients.”

“If you’re a candidate or client and you’d like an overview of the market please get in touch with our team, we’d be happy to help out.”
