Neil Ejje

Founder | London

Neil is one of the firm’s four founders. He is a member of the Leathwaite Board with responsibility for driving revenue and sector diversification. Neil is also responsible for the firm’s senior talent requirements – focusing on partner and director hires globally.

He established, with colleagues, the firm’s Board practice to provide clients access to emerging diverse talent that Leathwaite has built relationships with throughout the last 25 years.

Prior to his current role, Neil led the global search business with a particular focus on the CFO, transformation and technology markets. He set up the Leathwaite business in Asia in 2008 and played a major part in building the North America business, establishing long term clients that have remained close to the firm since its inception in 1999. One of Neil’s key achievements has been the hiring, development and retention of talent that now forms the basis of the current Leathwaite Leadership Team.

Neil started his career in accountancy at PWC before making the transition into human capital and headhunting. He has a BSc in Economics from the University of Hull.

Neil and his wife Pip have three amazing children. He’s a active mentor for Project ReMake, helping formerly incarcerated individuals by empowering entrepreneurs and the self-employed to foster successful re-entry back into society. Neil’s passions include Man City, tennis and cricket.
