Jim Brown (UK)

Founder and CEO

Jim started out in the media hiring market in 1997 and has worked in ad tech since it became a term.

He's one of the few people in the industry with extensive experience in running contingency and retained searches across all media platforms, in addition to technologies as they've emerged.

Hirers and candidates feel safe with Jim: they trust him with sensitive strategic information, and know they can always rely on him to deliver when it counts. He's helped clients shape their industries - and in turn helped people and businesses to scale and shine.
