Our Practices, whilst retaining their own distinct identities, work collaboratively to give us access to the broadest pools of candidates.


We nurture deep sector and functional specialisms and a culture of collaboration to discover candidates that are as much a fit for the culture of a company as they are for the role.

Our Board Practice

One of the UK market leaders in senior executive and non-executive search, the Board Practice is our founding practice. Under the leadership of industry veteran Carol Leonard, we advise public, private and not-for-profit organisations on critical Board level appointments.

In a constantly evolving corporate governance landscape, different types of leaders are beginning to emerge. Our Board Practice is known for identifying fresh, exemplary leaders-in-waiting, advising more than 250 Boards and nurturing steadfast relationships that span the FTSE100, FTSE250 and beyond.

“It’s not a cookie cutter approach. That bespoke discipline, coupled with minimal off limits, ensures that we cover off the obvious but also then explore lateral, more creative solutions. This frequently delivers much more exciting outcomes for our clients. We try really hard to surpass their expectations.”

Our Private Equity Practice

Led by Rowena Colthurst, the scope of the Private Equity practice includes buyout and growth equity firms, venture capital, hedge funds, alternative investment funds, sovereign wealth funds and family offices, with a special interest in emerging markets.

Each investment fund has its own culture. Placing candidates that can thrive in these demanding entrepreneurial environments takes an understanding of their nuances that can only come from a profound and personal experience of the sector.

“We not only help private equity firms find uber achieving, highly talented professionals with brilliant investment judgement, but also offer insight to their portfolio companies on how to develop effective leadership teams and Boards.”

Our Industrial & Technology Practice

Led by Chris Donkin, the Industrial & Technology Practice works with many leading players, ranging from FTSE350 listed companies to entrepreneurial start-ups, helping them navigate the leadership challenges of the fourth industrial revolution.

Today, industrial players face fundamental challenges: new business models and disruptive market entrants, combined with accelerating rates of change and a slowing pace of growth. To succeed, companies need agile leaders, quick to adapt and able to apply both diverse experience and innovative thinking to deal with unprecedented challenges.

“Now, more than ever, clients look to Inzito to help identify and engage high calibre leaders who combine breadth of experience with the strategic agility and growth mindset to succeed in times of disruptive change.”

Our Consumer Practice

Led by Kate Latham, the Consumer Practice is trusted by a cross section of retail, luxury, consumer goods and leisure businesses, from the FTSE100 to early stage entrepreneurial disrupters.

Driving growth during a period of profound uncertainty where change is happening at an unprecedented speed is the current challenge for business leaders. Today’s consumer is connected, informed and empowered seeking not only newness and convenience, but also trust in and affinity with the brand or organisation. To deliver this, people are critical. Today’s business leaders cite talent related issues as some of their top concerns: finding and retaining executives who are not only highly skilled but also resilient, flexible and able to deal with ambiguity.

“Our clients credit us with thinking broadly and laterally to identify those talented current and future leaders: forward thinking, agile, resilient and capable of leading today’s changing organisations.”
