Non-Executive Director - Innovate Finance

Leathwaite is a leading international executive search, executive interim, management consultancy and market intelligence firm with offices in London, New York, Hong Kong and Zurich. Vicky Griffiths, head of their board practice, was running a board search for Innovate Finance. Founded in 2014, Innovate Finance aims to accelerate and consolidate the UK’s leading position in the global financial services sector by directly supporting the next era of technology-led financial services innovators.

Vicky was not prepared to leave any stone unturned to find the best candidates for her client and posted the role on Nurole in parallel to running a traditional search process. Through Nurole she identified a diverse range of exceptional candidates who brought the digital background the board wanted but none more so than Danny Lopez, the COO of augmented reality tech unicorn Blippar who was previously the youngest ever British Consul-General to New York.

"The applications we received were of exceptional quality. More than half of our shortlist candidates were sourced through Nurole, showing the power of it as a candidate identification tool. The way in which Nurole drills down to the competencies required and desired ensures that only the most suitable candidates are identified for the role. Nurole is a great addition to the toolkit of any headhunter who wants to leverage their input and is serious about finding the best candidate for a role, no matter their sector, geography or situation."
