Based in London, Mark Longworth primarily serves clients in the financial services industry. Mark is a trusted advisor to boards and CEOs from both a search perspective and also in the leadership advisory space. In both of these roles he works with senior leaders to identify and develop exceptional and diverse executives. From a functional perspective, Mark is active in the firm’s board consulting, chief people officers, and general counsel practices.
I love working with clients to help them develop both themselves and their teams. It’s key for leaders and their businesses to be the best possible versions of themselves in order to achieve their goals.
