“Nigel Wright was recommended to me as the best firm for board executive recruitment. The strength of that recommendation, together with Nigel Wright’s extensive regional networks, is why we chose to partner with them on the CFO assignment. Our shortlist included people from the North East and Yorkshire. We’re delighted to attract such a high-calibre individual.”
