Former SThree chief Elden appointed Amoria Bond chairman

Former SThree CEO Gary Elden has been appointed chairman at Amoria Bond.

Announcing the move in a statement released yesterday, the multi-sector recruiter revealed Elden joined the business in January.

Elden left international STEM staffing business SThree a year ago following five years as CEO, six months as deputy CEO and five years as chief strategy officer. He is also the founder and former MD of SThree brand Huxley Banking & Financial Services.

Touching on the reasons for its new chairman’s appointment, Amoria Bond notes Elden, who has in-depth knowledge of international STEM markets, having grown SThree’s global headcount by 40%, increased gross profit by 55%, and doubled both turnover and profitability, will significantly strengthen the board’s capabilities and operating effectiveness in these and other complementary market sectors. 

Elden says: “I’ve been watching the rise of Amoria Bond with interest over the last few years, and have been really impressed by their success in establishing themselves as an international industry leader in specialist recruitment consultancy services. Their growth and financial results have been impressive from day one, and I look forward to working with the board as chairman to help them take the business through the next stages of growth.” 

Amoria Bond also revealed David Etherington has joined them as a non-executive adviser to the board as an operating partner and will build upon the leadership coaching and development consultancy he’s been delivering to the company.
