Ben specialises in senior level (£800+ per day) interim management recruitment within Business Transformation, supporting organisations through significant periods of strategic change. Assignments focus around enterprise-wide and cross-functional transformation leadership, including change management, programme and project management and PMO.

Ben has spent over 20 years in interim recruitment, largely focused on Change and Transformation. His desire to provide the right business solutions for his clients is underpinned by a core value set based on relationships, integrity, reliability and a hunger to exceed expectations. It’s an approach that fits perfectly with the ethos of Eton Bridge Partners.

Ben has been recognised as a Leading Interim Provider Consultant in the Institute of Interim Management Survey in 2020 and 2021; his success is accompanied by Eton Bridge Partners being named as the #1 provider of Interim Managers 2021 and 2022 by the IIM.

Ben studied Business Administration at Kent University. He began his recruitment career as a Pan-European SAP contract recruiter, before moving into Financial Services recruitment in 2005, where he dedicated his time building and running high performing teams, focused on technology and change interim solutions. Ben joined Eton Bridge Partners in 2016 to get back to the coal-face, where his energy, tenacity and focus is truly felt by client and candidate alike.

To unwind, if he’s not on the tennis court or enjoying a war film, Ben is happiest exploring the outdoors and/or the local pub menu with his family.

Eton Bridge spend time trying to really understand the relative strengths of all candidates, to have a meaningful ongoing relationship. This means that at any point, once they become aware of a client’s requirements, this can quickly translate this into a relevant short list for that client.
