1 min

Armstrong Craven is delighted to announce that on 8th July we became a majority employee-owned business. We will continue to be led by joint Managing Directors Rachel Davis and Peter Howarth, who are supported by a dynamic and innovative management team, and our Chairman, Mark Bates. We have long believed that the well-known benefits of employee ownership, when combined with our extremely dedicated team, will be a recipe for success, and we expect to see our business go from strength to strength under our new co-ownership structure.

Despite the challenging economic times, we are excited about the opportunities ahead, especially as so many companies are using the pandemic as a catalyst to reshape their leadership teams and look at more innovative and cost-effective ways to identify, engage with and hire the key people they need to thrive in the post COVID world.

The Armstrong Craven ‘deconstructed’ approach to Executive Search, means each research element can be commissioned on its own, as well as providing end-to-end searches. We also give our clients full data ownership, meaning they can make additional hires at no extra cost. Our talent research and consultancy provide company Boards with a vital independent view on business-critical people problems they need to solve to make their organisation thrive. These projects can range from how to increase ethnic, gender or neurodiversity, right through to robustly predicting global future talent hubs for in-demand skills such as data science.  

 We are proud that over 85% of our work comes through professional recommendations from our clients, some of the worlds’ most recognisable companies including Microsoft, GSK, Coca Cola and Bank of America. As a truly global talent partner, our team has fluency in 25 languages from our offices in Manchester, London, Geneva, Singapore and New York.
