Amrop Expands in the U.K.

January 23, 2023 – Amrop, a global leadership advisory and executive search partnership, has expanded with the addition of Tim Hammett as a partner in the U.K. “Tim Hammett is joining us during an exciting period of diversification and growth,” said Adam Saunders, managing partner Amrop U.K. “His experience in the executive search market enables us to deepen our presence in the C-suite and boardroom, where our clients increasingly rely on us as a provider of holistic talent solutions to address their leadership needs. We are thrilled Tim has chosen to become part of the team and that he shares our common vision for the future.”

Mr. Hammett has more than two decades of experience with executive search and leadership consulting organizations such as Korn Ferry/Whitehead Mann, Wilton & Bain, Norman Broadbent, and Heidrick & Struggles, and has been CEO and leader of various publicly listed and private businesses in the U.K. His track record and knowledge of the C-level market spans executive and board recruitment in the U.K., in Europe, and globally across a range of industries, including media, consumer, and professional services.

“We are welcoming Tim as a highly recognized and respected consultant, with invaluable experience in providing solutions to complex leadership and human capital matters,” said Annika Farin, chair of the global Amrop Partnership. “He represents the quality and depth of experience that marks Amrop’s reputation and prime market standing in the U.K. and across EMEA.”

“Over the past few years I have observed Amrop build its presence and reputation in the highly competitive U.K. market, gaining ground and respectability, so it was an obvious choice for me to join their business and their young dynamic team,” said Mr. Hammett. “I am not only looking forward to applying my experience in service to Amrop’s clients, but also excited to develop new integrated offerings at a pivotal moment of development for the firm.”

Mr. Hammett’s hiring follows the addition of David Bell and Lucie Shaw, two partners who joined the firm a year ago.
