With over 20 years of experience across the UK, Europe & US within the human resources market, Toby leads our Human Resources Search Practice with an operational focus on reward leadership assignments.

Having forged a strong track record in delivering high-end reward assignments he also leads Eton Bridge’s reward offering, providing both permanent and interim solutions. Toby’s core specialist knowledge areas are: performance, remuneration committee, executive remuneration, total reward & wellbeing, benefits & pensions, governance & risk management, and global mobility.

Toby’s passion sits with the belief that a more joined-up, collaborative approach across the breadth of the HR function can have a huge impact on the culture and performance of an organisation. Whilst Toby operates across the whole private sector, he has particular expertise within business to consumer, professional services and hi-tech sectors.

Toby started his career in 1999 and spent his early years recruiting in finance. He quickly developed a keen interest in the role human resources can play in driving business transformation and joined the HR recruitment practice of a FTSE 100. Toby then spent 5 years with a well-respected niche search & interim firm, before joining Eton Bridge as part of the original team back in September 2010.

Outside of work Toby is a regular golfer, a keen walker and loves to cook with his family whenever possible.

Joined the EBP team in 2010

Proud moment

My proudest moment was in 2015; I convinced the rest of the leadership team that I should focus on setting up the niche specialism of Reward and then loving every minute of it!

Childhood aspirations

Growing up I wanted to be either an English teacher or some kind of explorer searching for treasure (aged 10). I talked too much and loved the idea of adventure and discovery!
