“When I sold my pride and joy staffing business in 2007 I didn’t sell to the highest bidder as you’d expect. Instead, I sold to the person I thought I could work with best and continue to learn from as I wandered through the wonderful world of Tech recruitment. Working alongside Gary as my mentor we created great things and importantly had a lot of fun doing them. Like any good business partnership we challenged each other at times in order to get the best outcomes. Thirteen years on we are good friends and allies in our separate businesses and ‘chew the recruitment fat’ pretty much every day!”
