Leathwaite: the human capital specialists.

“We believe talented people are at the heart of any successful business.”

We partner with some of the world’s most ambitious and innovative firms to attract the best talent in specialist areas.

They choose Leathwaite because of our deep market insight and relationships.

Leathwaite offers business intelligence, executive interim solutions, executive search services and management consulting to a global client base, with market knowledge and a worldwide network that are held in high regard by our clients.

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 to leading organisations around the world. Leathwaite was named after the eponymous road in Clapham, London, where one of the partners lived.

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 now has over seventy employees consisting of partners, directors, consultants, researchers and office managers. With offices based in London, New York, Hong Kong and Zürich, we have successfully delivered work across Africa, the Americas, Asia, Europe, the Middle East and Oceania.
