February 10, 2015 – Grays Executive Search, a recently launched boutique search and selection consultancy, has opened a second office in Birmingham, U.K. and launched an executive interim search division, headed up by ex-Michael Page director, Phillip Machell. The firm plans to further it's footprint outside of London within the next six months. Grays has doubled its team to six specialist consultants who will work between London and Birmingham, and the firm plans to open a third office in Manchester. "Birmingham was the natural next step to grow the business," said Mr. Machell. "It's a global center for business, commerce and industry and is home to the U.K.'s largest manufacturing and engineering center so it fits the diverse range of sectors that we recruit across." Grays Executive Search specializes in senior and board level recruitment across a range of sectors and is part of Cordant Recruitment, the second-largest privately owned recruitment company in the U.K.
