Wilbury Stratton hires Navsaria as global head of strategic partnerships

Global talent intelligence specialist Wilbury Stratton has hired Karishma Navsaria as its new global head of strategic partnerships.

Navsaria joins Wilbury Stratton at a time when the company is experiencing significant growth and is looking to meet increasing demand for talent insights both in the UK and globally.

As talent acquisition is an extremely competitive market, more organisations are using insights so they can stand out to prospective talent and secure top leaders in industry.

Bringing with her 20 years of experience in forging partnerships with high-level stakeholders, Navsaria has a comprehensive background in the worlds of business and finance.

Before joining Wilbury Stratton, Navsaria spent two years as head of strategic partnerships at WealthiHer Network, where she built and managed relationships with commercial partners. Before this she worked as a UHNW private banker at JP Morgan across numerous global regions, including the UK, Switzerland and Asia.

Alongside her appointment, Wilbury Stratton has further strengthened its client-focused divisions with Darren Entwistle joining as a client principal and Matt Griffin as a client partner, both of whom will be working with customers in the pharmaceutical space. Arjan van Heuveln has also joined the company as a research partner focused on strategic account growth.

The new appointments come shortly after Wilbury Stratton set about expanding its global reach in March with new offices in London, New York and Singapore, in addition to its offices in Brighton and Kuala Lumpur, as well as expanding its Analytics, Client Services and Research divisions with senior hires in recent months.

Wilbury Stratton provides over a third of FTSE 100 companies with insights, strategic advice and talent intelligence services, including succession planning, mapping and pipelining; market and competitor intelligence; executive search and leadership assessment; risk mitigation and diversity benchmarking.

Additionally, Navsaria takes up a mentoring role at 100 Women in Finance, a non-profit organisation which strives to strengthen the presence of women in the investment and finance industry, where she shares her learnings and expertise with up-and-coming female entrepreneurs and business leaders.

The company recently launched a new bespoke digital talent platform, Wilbury On Demand, a portal that gives clients instant access to tailor-made data from their competitive and talent landscapes.
