Nick Green

A seasoned professional has established a new recruitment firm based in Leeds.

Nick Green, founder of FatGreen Executive, said shifting dynamics in the professional service sector are making it harder for companies to recruit the best people.

Prior to founding FatGreen, he spent two decades in the Executive Search industry, providing recruitment solutions for Investment Banks, Private Equity firms and their portfolio companies.

He added: “The demand for Partners and Directors in Audit, Tax, Corporate Finance, Restructuring, and Forensic Accounting is fiercely competitive.” 

“The introduction of new regulations governing the Big Four and private equity investment funding professional services buy-and-build strategies is not just changing the game but significantly boosting the demand for experienced executives. The time to act is now. 

“Historically, London-based executive search firms sourced senior professionals in the regions and individuals from local generalist recruitment firms. 

“But as founder of FatGreen Executive, I understand that regional professional service firms are increasingly seeking a focused approach.

“Our deep local sector knowledge and candidate insights give us the edge in providing the right executive solutions.”
