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.

“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.”
