Richard Haaker's Client Testimonials

  • Due to our rapid UK and international expansion plans we urgently needed a Franchise Director who could help deliver against those plans.  Macildowie Executive Search found, engaged with and secured a number of candidates for us to meet, out of which one was the perfect candidate.  This was all delivered by Macildowie against very niche search criteria and tight timeline.
    Muhummed Ibrahim, Chaiiwala Co-Founder
  • We needed a Director with a very specialist set of skills and experience at very short notice. We decided to work with Macildowie thanks to a personal recommendation. Macildowie’s service was excellent – very responsive. They understood, quickly, exactly what we needed and provided three candidates in a very short turnaround time. We had two very strong contenders, one of whom we offered and is doing a fantastic job. The speed of response and quality of match to our requirements was what surprised me the most. We have had a great experience with Macildowie. I would strongly recommend anyone making a similar Director level appointment to try them!
