HD Search is led by its two founding Partners, Huw David and Kate Goodall.
Huw has more than 20 years of recruitment experience the last 10 years of which have been focussed on executive search within the global energy market. As Huw’s clients will attest he has consistently delivered a quality service which is why such a high proportion of business comes from his existing clients which include small consultancies through to large multi-national organisations across the globe. Prior to launching HD Search, Huw worked in the US, the Middle East, Africa and Europe where he was responsible for leading recruitment teams of up to 130 executives.
