  • Our search was more than just replacing a Council CE, we wanted a change leader that could assist the Mayor and Council in operational pivoting Palmerston North City into a new direction. This required an Executive search for our Council CE through the Local Government, public and private sectors.
    We found Sheffield to be outstanding in the calibre of candidates they brought to the table. Consequently we appointed outside the Local Govt sector and went for a private sector appointment. That has proven to be very successful.

    Grant Smith - Mayor, Palmerston North City Council - North Island

  • Sheffield ran a tight ship and conducted a thorough and professional process.

    Peter Bamford - Director, CoveKinloch

  • I was really impressed with the way Sheffield took us through the process.
