Testimonials from our clients

A project to determine clearer roles between operational & commercial was complemented with a focused programme to improve the sales capability in the commercial team. Collingwood spent significant time developing an understanding of our needs; designing the programme specifically for Peel Ports. They balanced first-class knowledge with participative sessions which kept the process fresh & alive.

~ Group Commercial Director, Peel Ports Group , North West England

This change process gave everyone a fundamental understanding of why we needed to change. The resulting organisation was built to maximise opportunity whilst reflecting on risk. Without Collingwood’s expert facilitation the process of defining a Vision, Culture & Organisation Structure would have been more difficult, taken longer & wouldn’t have had the same staff engagement & understanding.

~ UK MD Trains & Modernisation, Alstom , North West England

Collingwood provide frequent and honest feedback throughout the search and provide supporting information alongside the candidate’s CV at shortlist stage. This includes detailed interview notes and behavioural profiling results. I would have no hesitation using Collingwood again and recommending them to other organisations.

~ Vice President, Nicomatic , US

I have had the pleasure of working with Collingwood over the past year. Our U.S.-based company has recently expanded into Europe where Collingwood's expertise and hard work proved to be invaluable to us in finding the right talent for key roles in the European expansion. I would not hesitate to work with them again.

~ HR Director, SAE International , US

We have been partnering Collingwood Executive Search for over 6 years and have successfully recruited a UK Managing Director, a UK GSM, a Global Training Director and a Regional Sales Director in Spain. They really understand the European opthalmic industry and combined with their focus on understanding our company culture, they have simplified our recruitment process.

This was our first time using Collingwood. We found Mark Goldsmith and his team to be very professional and were delighted with the high calibre of all the candidates presented for interview. Overall we were very impressed with the services of Collingwood.
