“Callum, when it comes to executive search, is a real pro. He recommended me to a CEO position - later when I was in charge, he supported me by filling different positions. Callum always delivered on time and he had the right and fitting candidates. I was very happy with his service and performance and can highly recommend him. If I would have a need to fill a position - talking with Callum is going to be my priority.“

We work with proven leaders who can take the reins and build a stronger, more effective, operations function for your business.

“I have recently closed an open position, thanks to the job done by Taylor and CLM. The process was done in a very short time frame which was a key point on that search on top of having the right skill, of course. It has been possible thanks to the high level of professionalism, and very good knowledge of the Automotive Central-Eastern Europe market. By a good and detailed questioning, Taylor has fully understood our need and he was able to quickly provide a short-list. Thanks to Taylor and the team, we have the right person in the right place in a short time.”
