Tara has a depth of experience in Executive and Director level search at both a national and international level. She has successfully completed senior appointments for clients within the UK, USA, Asia Pac and Europe, conducting searches across publicly quoted, private equity backed and privately owned businesses.

Tara lives in the Hampshire countryside with her husband and their two labradoodles, Dottie and Stan. In her spare time, she has been renovating the home she and her husband bought just before lockdown, where she has since developed a passion for decorating and gardening. Tara is also actively involved, as a trustee, of a Hampshire based charity providing a facility for children and family summer camps.

Proud moment

I would say picking up the keys to our home.  This was the realisation of a long journey of about 4 years, after returning from Belgium and our plans to move being thwarted by the Brexit result and a rather ’shaky’ housing market meaning we ended up being displaced and living with my parents in Nottingham for a year!

Childhood aspirations

When growing up, I wanted to be a tank driver.  I was hugely influenced by my grandfather who was a WWII veteran, decorated with the MM for his bravery during the battle of Arnhem.
