We are proud to announce that Lester Blades is 21 years young today. Our vision has never centred on being the biggest or having the highest profile, just to be a successful consulting business, to be true to our values, to always deliver the best service and outcomes possible, and to have respectful relationships with all.
The journey started with just three people, a modest office, barely a handful of clients, a clunky MS Access database and a not particularly fast ASDL internet. Today we have consulted to over 600 employer clients, interacted with +50,000 candidates and have made around 3,500 executive and non-executive appointments. We also embrace a hi-tech AI driven CRM database. Lester Blades is part of an amazing international network of like-minded and similar sized executive search firms.
We are now a Partnership of five dedicated professionals all doing their best to deliver great outcomes for our clients every day. We have an amazing team of support staff. We are proud that the values and behaviours that have made us successful over the past 21 years are still embraced by all at Lester Blades every day. You can expect to see us around for a lot longer yet.
Thank you to everyone who has joined us on this exciting journey. We take this opportunity to wish everyone a merry Christmas and a happy and prosperous 2024.
Tina Jackson, James Fairbairn, Suzanne Ardagh, Tony Lester, Geoff Blades, and our marvellous team.
