Chris has spent 18 years working primarily within the Thames Valley specialising in financial recruitment. During this time, he has worked with a huge number of clients from owner-managed business through to FTSE 100. Along with managing client relationships and leading large recruitment teams, Chris has built strong links with most of the major finance institutes and has been a regular speaker at events for CIMA, ACCA, CICM and AAT over the past few years.

After 18 years working for a corporate recruitment consultancy; spending the last 10 years in Director positions, Chris decided to join Wade Macdonald as Managing Director with plans to double the size of the business, opening up in to more niche markets and building further on the impressive client base that work with Wade Macdonald to recruit into their finance and HR departments.

Why do you love/ what attracted you to work for WM?

The main things that attracted me to join Wade Macdonald were the exciting plans to treble the size of the business over the next 3 years and the opportunity to play a real part in the strategy to get us there.

I had always come up against Wade Macdonald in my past and had been impressed with the feedback from candidates and clients with regards to the service they received.

Since joining I have found Wade Macdonald to be full of specialist consultants that really do care about all the people that they work with, whether that be colleagues or the professionals in their network.
