    Bjorn’s superb track record in commercial businesses and customer-facing experience enabled him to embrace his original role as Business Development Executive in the Mechanical team, growing the client base as the team expanded. He narrowly missed out on the 2013 Performer of the Year award with some excellent new business wins.

    During 2014 Bjorn continued his success by moving into a Consultant role and in 2015 was promoted to Senior Consultant. At the beginning of 2016, Bjorn was promoted to Managing Consultant, across the whole Mechanical Engineering Team, and is now Divisional manager of that team.

    Marc joined us in January 2019 to expand the Electrical and Electronics Division. He brings a wealth of recruitment experience and has quickly proven to be a natural fit to the team.

    Marc’s passions outside of work are running on the heath with his Labrador and art, especially French Impressionism. His favourite artist is Degas which if you know about his work, fits perfectly with Marc’s earlier career as a professional ballet dancer.

    Big congratulations to Marc Gibbs who won his first top performer award in October having only joined the business in January.
