“Raw Selection have been a pleasure to work with and uncover only the highest level of candidates for every search. Alex also creates a very strong relationship with both candidates and clients, ensuring a robust and speedy recruitment process. Consider them fully recommended.”
Mark Rogan, Managing Director
“This was an extremely successful search for us. Despite the niche sector requirement, the tight deadline and the need to ensure the whole process was kept very confidential, Alex delivered an A-Player candidate within 6 hours who we subsequently hired. We are very happy with this and are now well positioned to grow our portfolio company”
Hiring Manager, GTCR
“We have worked with Alex on several assignments over the years for a variety of roles.
I am always impressed with his focus and attention on the assignment, and I know he will not stop until he has found us the right candidate.”
Chris Finlay, CEO, Lloyd Jones Capital
“Having previously worked with Alex and Raw Selection on a successful CFO search, we engaged again on a search for a CEO for an Aerospace portfolio company. Alex managed to present us with an excellent final candidate who we subsequently hired and we are looking forward to them making a big impact on the business.
I would highly recommend Alex and Raw Selection to any Private Equity firm looking to secure exceptional talent.”
Carol Crick, Managing Director, Acorn Growth Companies
“Raw Selection were engaged for a CEO search in the USA for a retail business within our portfolio.
We were presented with an excellent shortlist in 2 weeks with several strong candidates who met our criteria. A candidate was selected who not only had blue chip experience, but also lower to middle market, Private Equity, Portfolio Company and exit experience.
We subsequently hired this profile and we are excited about the prospects for the business.”
