Leathwaite: the human capital specialists.

Leathwaite was established with one clear purpose: to help organisations secure the best Human Capital within Support, Enablement & Control Functions.

Founded in 1999 by four partners – Andrew Wallace, James Rust, Martin Phillips and Neil Ejje – the business was formed to focus on delivering permanent infrastructure placements, via executive / retained search, to leading organisations around the world. Leathwaite was named after the eponymous road in Clapham, London, where one of the partners lived, and even up until as recently as 2017, there had always been at least one Leathwaite employee still living on the road!

The founding partners wanted to create a collegiate working environment based on a set of values that maximised employee and client satisfaction. In doing so, they hoped to form a business that would be a centre of excellence within executive search.

Over time, Leathwaite has diversified to offer a range of business intelligence and management solutions. This evolution has been underpinned by the level of appointments and length of relationships maintained with some of the world’s foremost businesses.

Leathwaite offers executive search, executive interim and data & insight solutions to a global client base, with market knowledge and a worldwide network that are held in high regard by our clients.

Leathwaite now has approximately one hundred employees consisting of partners, directors, consultants, associates and our global operations team. With offices based in London, New York, Hong Kong and Zürich, successfully delivering work across Africa, the Americas, Asia, Europe, the Middle East and Oceania.
