Saxton Bampfylde Expands In Scotland

May 26, 2017 – U.K.-based executive recruiter Saxton Bampfylde has expanded in Scotland with the addition of Mary Few as a partner. She joins the firm’s Edinburgh team.

Most recently, Ms. Few set up and ran operations for West Indochina, an executive search firm serving the Myanmar market. Prior to that, she worked for the Eliot Partnership, a London search firm that specializes in the insurance sector.

“Mary’s track record speaks for itself,” said Stephen Bampfylde, founder and chairman. “We are delighted to have her on board as she returns home to Scotland with her family. With her experience at a national and international level, we believe she will bring a very interesting perspective to search in the Scottish market.”

“We are delighted to welcome Mary to the Scottish team, as we expand our connections and network right across the country,” said Peta Hay, managing director for Saxton Bampfylde in Scotland. “The market in Scotland continues to demand the very highest caliber of senior candidates from an increasingly wider pool at a national and international level. Having Mary on board to help enhance our search capabilities and service offering is a very positive move for us as we continue to grow the business.”
