March 13, 2019

In recognition of International Womens Day 2019, Bailey Fisher Executive Search is delighted to report that 48% of our senior leadership placements over the past 6 months have been women.

The recent placements include Chair, CEO, CFO, FD and senior operational roles for growth businesses across Technology and Health Technology, covering AI, cyber security, virtual reality, diagnostics and digital health.   Clients at which female executives have taken up roles during the past 6 months range from University spin-outs, through VC-backed to AIM listed & FTSE 100 businesses, all sharing a focus on growth.

Headquartered in Cambridge, with offices in London and a European Business Partner based in Paris, Bailey Fisher specialises in finding and hiring people who fundamentally impact the success of their businesses.  We do this by working closely with our clients to gain a deep understanding of their challenges and ambitions.

In 2008, Bailey Fisher founded Women 4 Technology, a network of over 1500 business leaders across technology and health technology with quarterly business focused events.  Women 4 Technology launched in Cambridge, before expanding to London in 2009 and Manchester in 2018.

Bailey Fisher and Women 4 Technology are currently collaborating with the University of Cambridge on unique research into composite factors influencing the success of Founders and C-level executives.  The research originally focused on female tech Founders & CEOs, with novel insights to be published later this year. The next phase of the research focuses on male Founders & CEOs.  The research is conducted via an online survey. If you are interested in contributing to the research please contact Toby Young, Head of Technology Practice at Bailey Fisher or Ann Fisher, CEO of Women 4 Technology.
