“We engaged Bailey Fisher to lead the search for a dynamic and highly credible sales leader with extensive growth experience. John Bridger conducted a very professional search, keeping us well informed at every stage, providing in-depth research and presenting a high-calibre shortlist. We appointed an excellent candidate who is an ideal fit for our business. I would thoroughly recommend John and Bailey Fisher.”
