  • "​Kerren Leach managed the executive search, which ultimately placed me as Chief Operating Officer at a large Managing Agency. His professional approach throughout focussed not only on skillset but also on cultural alignment and ambition ensuring the match was successful for both myself and the company. I was kept informed and felt supported through the whole process by Kerren and the wider team."

  • ​"Ben has been a trusted partner for me across a number of different roles. His commitment to finding the right person, in terms of culture and not just skills, is first-class. At Anthemis, he successfully executed on a range of business-critical positions across the portfolio, including CFO, CUO, Head of Market and Country Manager. At Cowbell, he was my first call after we had decided to make our first hire in the UK.”

  • "​I’ve used Eames Partnership for a number of senior appointments, specifically ‘Heads of’ to then build and launch propositions in various London Market Specialty classes. Eames Partnership have been extremely knowledgeable and able to move at pace in mapping market talent, potential opportunities and then supporting me in interviewing and recruiting this talent. Importantly the talent I have recruited with their support has gone on to build successful profitable books."

  • "​I have worked with Ben over the last five years. He supported in the search and placement of several critical roles for a large insurer. This included Executive search, Heads of Function placements and interim roles. Ben’s insight into the market is exceptional. The information he has provided helps to shape strategic decision-making at board level. He is hands-on as a trusted partner, with regular contact being made to ensure the service he is delivering is best in class. I would thoroughly recommend using Ben, as he is a true expert in his field."
