Contracts/Deals: Sheffield Haworth acquires The Meyer Partnership
Tues, 24 Apr 2012
Executive search and human capital advisory firm Sheffield Haworth has acquired banking search firm The Meyer Partnership.
Meyer is led by Nicole Meyer, herself a former banker of 20 years’ standing, who moved into search in 2007 at The Rose Partnership, where she was head of its transaction banking practice. She now takes up the role of global head of her new employer’s transaction banking practice.
Meyer says: “The time is right to leverage our unique niche and combine resources to collectively deliver outstanding service to this important growth sector of the financial services industry… Global dominance and leadership in this space was always the intention and with Sheffield Haworth it is now the reality.”
Last week, as recruiter.co.uk
reported, Sheffield Haworth launched a new interim management practice.
The firm was number one in Recruiter
’s 2011 Hot 100 – the list of the top recruitment firms ranked by profit per fee earner employed. Its gross profit per employee was almost £216k, the only firm to record a figure over £200k, and up from £132k the previous year.
