Founded in 2001, BarrettClark Executive Search has been built on a backbone of robust, specialist knowledge and insight into the consumer sector harnessed over years of experience. Created by founder and Managing Partner Simon Clark, the business has grown from an idea into a global Executive Search firm partnering with industry leading businesses in the consumer sector. Forming lasting, valuable relationships has been at the core of the business and nothing epitomises this more than the companies first hire, Dewi Jones, still being at the forefront of the business sharing his experience with new clients as well as those relationships built back in 2002!

Now in 2019, and its 18th year, BarrettClark Executive Search is firmly matured as a retained search firm specialising in Board and key leadership hires.
