Our review of 2022 – activity and highlights.
As the New Year is upon us, we’d like to take this opportunity to share some of our highlights from the past 12 months.
Throughout 2022 we achieved excellent search outcomes for our clients, working predominantly at Main Board level with established and high growth entrepreneurial businesses backed by Private Equity. Our German operation continued to perform well, contributing 40% to our overall business.
Trading volumes are now back to their pre-pandemic levels and we have noticed a distinct shift in client requirements. The most substantial change has been the sharp rise in demand for high quality CFOs as companies position for greater M&A activity albeit set against a very challenging economic environment. We have also seen a material increase in Executive Board appointments, most obviously Chief Operating Officers and Sales & Marketing Directors. We noted a clear reduction in the number of Chair appointments which can be explained by the decrease in Private Equity deal activity over the year.
Looking forward to 2023, we anticipate an increase in PE deal activity and a strong demand for Board level candidates across our core markets.
Our team looks forward to supporting the growth ambitions of our clients in the year ahead.

Event news: Directorbank’s Simon Thomas hosted another excellent drinks and dinner evening last night, this time at the fantastic Kerridge’s Bar & Grill for his London-based clients.
“An absolute pleasure to host yesterday’s dinner at Kerridge’s. This is the second of my ‘family and friends’ dinners to celebrate the successful work we have undertaken with our clients and candidates over the past couple of years. A very enjoyable, relaxed evening with great people, conversation and food. My thanks go to all those who joined me. To those who could not make this one, I will be hosting another in the autumn.”
