Bassett Launches New Venture


Simon Bassett, the former Managing Director of EMR, has launched a new marketing recruitment specialist called TML Partners.

Because the next generation of marketing leaders looks very different.

Founder Bassett said

“Having run EMR for six years and navigated it through the credit crunch for private equity shareholders, the time was right to build a new privately owned high quality marketing recruitment specialist.”

The new business specialises in placing senior marketing talent, primarily CMOs, Marketing Directors and their management teams for blue chips and high growth businesses. The venture is majority owned by staff and uses the very latest tech and agile working.

“The brand is being built on reputation – a company that clients and candidates love to work with and one recruiters are proud to work for.” said Bassett.

TML is an acronym for Tomorrow’s Marketing Leaders.

“It’s what we stand for in every sense” said Bassett. “We exist to make hiring senior marketing talent smarter and faster for our clients”.

Bassett went on to say

“We’ve launched this business because the next generation of marketing leaders looks very different. Marketing talent has become the new currency in the digital world. Effective marketing is high on every leadership agenda and is critical to business success. Hiring marketing leaders is far from obvious. It requires expertise, extensive experience, foresight and plenty of lateral thinking. Our expertise and experience is simply unrivalled by generalist recruiters, headhunters and in-house resourcing teams.“

The new venture is supported by significant investment to enable Bassett and Partners to build one of the leading marketing recruitment brands in the industry.
