This year has been a record year for Stephenson Executive Search, a headhunting firm that focuses on appointments in the private banking, private wealth management and family office sectors. The company has doubled in size, hired more executives and expanded into the legal sector whilst continuing to service its existing client base.
‘Our core business continues to be in wealth management’ says Billy Stephenson, founder and managing director. ‘But we have also seen an increase in demand from international multi-family offices looking to establish themselves in London as well as financial technology firms looking to target “next gen” clients’
Stephenson was previously a Private Banker at Credit Suisse where he spent 6 years managing the wealth of high net worth and ultra-high net worth clients. In 2012, he founded Stephenson Executive Search; the company now also provides high level board reviews, advice on governance and non-executive hires.
