Three new arrivals have bolstered Rowan Executive Search’s ranks as the company builds on a record year.
Rowan has appointed Tammy Hopla as an associate director, Jack Bottomley as a senior consultant and Emma Milton as an executive researcher.
Their arrival follows a strong period of growth for Rowan, which achieved record revenues of £3.2m in 2021 and started 2022 with its best-ever quarter, putting the company on track for another year of stellar progress with revenues forecast to reach £4.5m.
Rowan, which has offices in Manchester and Chorley, works with business owners to secure top talent to drive their growth. It specialises in strengthening the boards and leadership teams of privately and family-owned SMEs, as well as those backed by private equity.
Tammy is a qualified accountant and has joined Rowan from Beautiful Drinks, where she was finance director for its restaurant group. She previously held senior finance roles at companies including Kiddicare, Mothercare and TUI.
At Rowan she is working with private equity houses seeking to appoint senior finance staff to their portfolio companies, as well as matching board-level finance professionals to SME owners and founders to fuel growth.
Jack has joined Rowan’s HR and operations practice, which is part of Rowan’s private capital team that is led by Louise Ellis.
He joined Wincanton as a graduate trainee in an operations role and progressed to managerial positions before moving to THG in a management capacity.
His role at Rowan sees him working with SME clients to match and appoint senior executives to drive business growth from an operational perspective.
Emma has a master’s degree in forensic psychology from Manchester Metropolitan University and has joined Rowan’s private capital team in a research role.
Paul Waite, founder and managing director of Rowan, said: “These new roles have been created to meet growing demand for our services and demonstrate our commitment to our values-based internal recruitment policy.
“We are thrilled to welcome Tammy, Jack and Emma to our expanding team and, having had our best-ever quarter at the start of this year, we continue to look to strengthen the business at all levels.
“Tammy has a wealth of commercial experience and finance industry knowledge as well as an extensive network of contacts, and her expertise should prove invaluable to our clients.
“Jack is another great example of our values-based recruitment policy. He is new to the world of executive search but has all the right qualities, enthusiasm and aptitude for the job and an impressive level of knowledge and experience of operational business functions.
“Having Emma on board with her qualification in forensic psychology is also very exciting as we look to utilise our digital analytics product Leadership Dynamics, which has been developed by our partner businesses within the LCap Group.
“Emma will be able to use her specialist knowledge and data analysis experience to deliver insights to clients using the behavioural profiling tool.”
Rowan focuses on recruiting leadership talent for SME owner-founders looking to build out their senior teams to deliver their growth ambitions.
Typical roles include chief executives, chairmen and other board level directors alongside senior executives for finance, sales and marketing, operations, HR and tech positions across sectors ranging from e-commerce, technology and life sciences to logistics and distribution, infrastructure and manufacturing.
Clients include SRL Traffic Systems, Online4Baby, Lakelovers, eCommonSense, Clubhouse Golf, SpaMedica, Music Magpie, Social Chain, MPM Products and Made Tech.
Rowan also works closely with private equity clients, including BGF, LDC, NorthEdge Capital, Pitalia Capital, Maven Capital Partners, Mercia, WestBridge and Apiary Capital.
