John Bridger

Director: Technology Practice

I run global searches for growth technology companies, specialising in working with Deep Tech businesses at the forefront of AI and Machine Learning.  My particular area of focus is on Seed and Series A businesses looking to appoint commercially minded leaders to drive growth.  Typically, I hire for CEO, other C-suite and VP level roles.

I joined Bailey Fisher in 2016 as a Technology Researcher, before being promoted to Associate.  Following a succession buyout, I became a member of the management team and the youngest Director in the firm’s 20-year history.  Having specialised recently in Research across a range of technologies, markets and investments, I have a deep understanding of the technology sector and candidate market globally.

Before joining Bailey Fisher I spent 4 years in executive search and senior recruitment focusing on IT & Communications across the UK and European markets.

Operating within a tight market, John consistently displayed creativity and tenacity in his approach to finding and engaging with relevant candidates. He presented a shortlist of high-calibre individuals from which we appointed an excellent candidate."
