What Others Say About Us

I engaged the services of Holtby Turner when I was CEO of the Murphy Group.  We had planned major growth of the business and we needed to attract a number of senior managers who would enable us to achieve our ambitious plan. Toby and his team invested the time to understand our business, our future plans, and the experience and personalities we would need to achieve this. Holtby Turner were able to promote Murphy as a business and were able to secure a number of very impressive candidates who had proven experience of business growth and management. Holtby Turner’s market knowledge and connections enabled us to connect with leaders who have led to a step-change in the Murphy Group. I would recommend them without hesitation.
