Solutions and Expertise

Culture. Capability. Continuity. These are the drivers that make our search experience different – the elements that power our unique approach. And because they interact and influence one another, they’re greater than the sum of their parts.

For us, culture is the essence and the pulse of your organization, so before we search, we embrace it, feel it and live it. This innate understanding of who you are shapes our capabilities. Here’s where the search for your game-changing new people really fires up, with a singular mix of energy, experience, original thinking and innovative techniques.

And just when some might consider wrapping up, adding the full stops and heading for the exit, we choose continuity. Great business relationships don’t have a cut off point. Fit and forget is not what we’re about. Witnessing the transformative power of the right talent in your management team makes us glad to be different.

Creating Lasting Impressions:
“I have worked with Simon over the last 3 years. Simon is a fantastic partner. He moves at speed, is solution oriented and gets the job done. My first engagement with Simon was at Softbank. Simon helped immensely in the winter of 2016 to hire a bunch of key roles that helped in setting up the Vision Fund, including the Compliance head and Privacy head. What made that engagement very fruitful was the speed with which Simon grasped the complexity of the requirements, and adapted to the fast paced environment at Softbank, while maintaining exceptional quality. Simon later helped in hiring a few key leaders in the Global Rewards function when I moved to Uber. Because of his speed of execution, clarity of communication and ability to be a “talent” partner ( and not just a ‘search partner’) I highly recommend Simon to anyone who is looking at finding the right Exec Search partner.” – Aditya Roy, VP & Head of Global Rewards, Uber

“We retained Simon on the Chief Compliance Officer & Chief Risk Officer searches for SoftBank Vision Fund in London. The complex and critical nature of these two positions meant that we had to quickly hire the best candidates to complete the fund start-up in a compliant manner. Simon filled both searches with top candidates within 5 weeks from initial brief to offer acceptance, sign & resign. The trust & confidence Simon installed in us and the quality & speed of execution from beginning to end really differentiated him from other search firms and we continue to work with him well in the fund and our portfolio companies.” – JB, COO, SoftBank Vision Fund

“Simon and his firm are simply outstanding. Simon is able to understand exactly what I am looking for on many different dimensions and then prepare an execution plan that will get the best candidates in front of me in the fastest possible time. He is a smart, responsive and strategic partner. I often hear from my colleagues, as well as candidates, what a great person he is and how articulate he is on the characteristics and needs of the profile search. I have used Simon many times and will continue to do so.” – Mollie Spilman, CRO, Oracle

“Simon is a great partner : I enjoy working with him and his team and we have been successful hiring high potential executives across our 3 regions (Americas, EMEA and APAC). The Clark Partnership has been a powerful strategic partner to the co-founders and executive team at Criteo since 2015 to date.” – Denis Collin, EVP People, Criteo
