Richard has worked in Executive Search since 1988. He was part of the team which acquired Talisman IS through an MBO, grew the firm to a 100 person operation in 7 European countries and sold/integrated the business into Penna PLC. With Jane, he established Chapter 1 in 2001 as a boutique firm where experienced search consultants deliver, rather than sell, retained searches. He continues to spend almost all of his time on client projects.
Part of the Talisman IS Management Team and subsequently leading the division of Penna which managed retained search for Consulting clients, Jane was also founder of Chapter 1. Jane continues to deliver retained senior level searches on a pan-European basis.
Victoria has been with Chapter 1 for over 15 years and specialises in senior appointments in digital and business transformation across Europe.
