Silven Recruitment announces changes at the top

Manchester-based food and drink manufacturing recruitment specialists Silven Recruitment has announced big changes at the top to support further growth.

Former sales director Jeremy Pierce (above right) has been appointed managing director after almost a decade at the agency, as founder Ian Simkins (above left) steps into the role of CEO.

Gilbert Gregory has also been promoted from recruitment manager to head of permanent recruitment, while Gemma Harris and Keeley Grindrod have been promoted to senior consultants.

Simkins says: “The time is right for Jeremy to take over the reins day-to-day. It frees me up to focus on the company’s long-term growth plans and the overall strategic development.”

The moves, which also include a recent brand refresh and a new website, come as Silven celebrates its 10th anniversary.
