Non-Executive Director | Chairman
Giles brings 35+ years of C-suite experience as former Group COO & Deputy Group CEO of Robert Walters Plc. He quickly got recognised as a leading individual in his industry and went to participate in the early days in Robert Walters.
With continued responsibility for the entire day to day activities of the group, Giles conducted significant cross border acquisitions (APAC, EMEA and Americas) and co-scaled the group from one office to 4,000+ global staff in 61 offices across 30 countries. Under his guidance, Robert Walters Plc grew to become a FTSE250 listed company with £1,23Billion+ turnover and £470Million+ Market Capitalisation.
Giles played a central role in the initial flotation in 1996 on the London Stock Exchange, during the strategic sale to a US based Private Equity group in 1998 and in the second flotation on the LSE in 2000. Giles retired in 2019 and currently sits on the board of several companies and charities.
He brings an unprecedented business acumen, acute corporate governance and managing skills, and we expect strong leadership and guidance coming from his wealth of experience.
