March 17, 2016 – London-based executive recruiters Demeter Global Search & Board Advisers has strengthened its U.K. search team with the addition of Elaine MacDermot as a consultant.
Ms. MacDermot has over five years of experience in the executive search industry focusing on both executive and non-executive hiring within the FTSE 350 and private sector.
Previously, she was a director in the U.K. CEO and board practice at DHR International working across a range of industries. Before that, she was in the same role with CTPartners where she also focused on searches within the financial services sector. Based in London, Ms. MacDermot has a track record of placements across Europe and the Americas.
“I am delighted that Elaine has agreed to join Demeter,” said managing partner Andy Davies. “We have known each other for nearly three years and she is, without doubt, one of the most diligent search professionals that I have worked with. She has a wealth of experience at board level, and within the investment banking sector, and also shares my philosophy of always putting the client first, rather than the interests of external shareholders.”
