Chris joined the business in 2011 as part of the Macildowie Training Programme and progressed through our Part-Qualified, Qualified and Senior Financial Recruitment desks. As part of a business growth strategy he recruited for Blue Chip clients in Northamptonshire and Milton Keynes, quickly growing and developing his desk.
After a successful period of growth in those markets, Chris established our Milton Keynes division, before returning to Leicester to run the Financial recruitment team. Following his success in those roles, Chris became Regional Managing Director for the North East Midlands and South Yorkshire.
He also specialises in Senior Executive Finance Recruitment across the wider East Midlands.

“I have worked with Chris since joining Barclaycard in November 2011. Chris' understanding of Barclaycards requirements and culture is second to none and has provided some outstanding candidates. He always has Barclaycards best interest at heart and can see that his view is quality rather than quantity. I look forward to working with Chris in the future and would highly recommend Chris as an exceptional recruiter.”
Outside of work, Chris's main passion is sailing, but he is also a big F1 fan and fast becoming a Leicester Tigers fan. He’s given up on ever trying to enjoy or learn to play golf…
