Over the last 20 years, James has assisted me with numerous HR and Recruitment assignments for “investee” companies from across a number of diverse sectors (Pharma; IT; Finance; Airlines; Retail; Leisure and Philanthropic) His usual mandate has been to assist us in finding the right “people” for key executive hires. James’ style has always been to take time to understand the skill set and personality required for each of the assignments. Each stage of the process was delivered on time, and James helped us source and secure some excellent people that have helped our investee companies to grow and prosper.’ I want to wish James great success with Elevate, and highly recommend their HR and Recruitment services to companies who need to find and support key executives.
