Our extensive network of professional advisory contacts across the UK, USA and Europe - which include Private Equity Funds, BIG4 and National Accountancy Practices as well as banks and funders - makes us THE place to find information and career advice on securing Non Exec Director jobs. We are familiar with the challenges of the Portfolio Director and act as a conduit to finding these "off market" positions.

Resumé / Bio

In 2013 Ian Wright launched a business which effectively saw the Non Executive Director recruitment arena turned upon its head. NonExecutiveDirectors.com is revolutionizing the NED recruitment space.

No longer will search firms dictate and demand the astronomical fees related to the appointment of Non Executive Directors. No longer will Non Executive Directors have to plea with recruiters and search firms to put them forward for roles they know they are well qualified for. Welcome to NonExecutiveDirectors.com.

For 10 yrs+ Ian Wright has run search firms - 2006 saw the establishment of Equinox Financial Search & Selection Ltd which focuses on searching and selecting the very best talent for businesses (typically) in the 5m to 100m bracket. Clients range from Private Equity Funds who are strengthening or restructuring Boards to Banks and International Advisory Firms seeking to assist clients in times of growth (or turbulence!)

Equinox do not seek to advertise their business or door knock - they work completely off market recruiting typically CFO, Managing Director, Finance Director and Financial Controller candidates.

Assignments stem from close relationships with Corporate Finance, VC, Private Equity Banking Fraternities & they guarantee a dedicated, confidential service to clients and candidates alike.

Ian has also bought (and sold) an e-commerce business to private equity so understands the dynamics of business (unlike many in the recruitment space).

Current personal investments/Directorships include:

www.nonexecutivedirectors... Search & Selection of Senior Finance Staff (FD level appointments, nationally and internationally but dealing heavily in the North West) and Board appointments.

E-commerce businesses

MBO, MBI, Succession planning and Non Executive Director roles
