  • 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.

  • Ian and the team clearly had extensive networks in the education sector which meant we were presented with candidates of exceptional quality and appropriate characteristics. They understood our requirements and led us through a recruitment exercise which was comprehensive, holistic and timely.

  • Sheffield Search’s service was highly professional, marked by a strong collaborative/partnership approach. Communication throughout the process was regular and full, and gave the board comfort of the progress being made.
    All these elements ensured not only a successful outcome but a series of relationships very well managed.

  • It is all about the people and Mike (Stenhouse) has built up a high level of trust in his relationship with the MTF Board. He provides a very thorough, credible and professional process which resulted in, in this case, three high calibre and appointable candidates to choose from.
