KDR Recruitment Ltd, the original data, technology and analytics recruiter, has got the new decade off to a positive start with the announcement of two new senior hires.
Mark Townsend has rejoined KDR as Principal Executive Search Consultant, after leaving the business in 2016, following six years with the firm. Mark’s new role is to focus on increasing the company’s ability to support their clients with attracting senior data, technology and analytics professionals. The role is a global one but Mark will be based in KDR’s new head office at Booths Park, which was official opened by Andrew Molloy, Mayor of Knutsford, at the end of November.
The second key appointment is Tom Brookshaw. With more than a decade of experience at a senior level in the recruitment industry, Tom has been brought on board to develop the firm’s offering in the Netherlands, which it has identified as a key market for data, technology and analytics recruitment in the coming years.
CEO of KDR Recruitment, Mark Dexter, commented:
“It is fantastic to welcome Mark back to KDR and to have Tom join our family. Both of these guys are extremely knowledgeable and professional and I am excited by the opportunities for growth they offer our business.
“We’ve had a great few years, capped off by the move to our fabulous new offices in Knutsford’s Booths Park at the end of November, but we live in a dynamic world and we need to keep moving forward. We believe the opportunities in executive search as a sector and the Netherlands as a location offer huge potential for growth and we are now very well placed to take advantage of those opportunities.”
KDR Recruitment currently has 25 people and is expecting to expand over the coming months, with plans to hire a further 4 trainee recruitment consultants in January 2020.
