2021 | January
Seven Executive was formed!
January 2021 saw the birth of Seven Executive, from John's renovated garage and Tom's kitchen table, in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.
2021 | September
We made our first hire!
And what a hire it was, we welcomed Izaac Clarke into the Seven team just shortly after moving into our brand new high spec leeds office.
2021 | October
We've only gone and done it again!
The only way was up, following the instant success of Izaac we went on to add another to the team, Sy!
2021 | December
We won our first award!
Supplier of the year with a global packaging manufacturer by filling 20+ sales/commercial roles (ones which historically they have struggled to fill).
2022 has gone on as a year to remember, with the growth we could have never imagined in our second year!
Notably, our team expanded to 8 exceptional individuals, as we welcomed three new members to the Seven family: Ben, Amelia, and Emmy.
Their unique talents and dedication have played a crucial role in our success, enabling us to serve our clients with unparalleled excellence.
In 2023, we experienced significant growth and positive developments, further enhancing our service quality, expanding our team, and establishing new divisions to meet the evolving needs of our clients.
One notable addition to the team is Oliver Clarke-Irons, who joined as a recruitment consultant in our newly formed Medical Devices division. With his expertise in the field, we are now better equipped to serve clients in the thriving Medical Devices industry. We were also excited to welcome Cosmos Lemos, who brings extensive experience and knowledge to our team. Cosmos spearheads our new division focused on Private Equity & SME's within the HVAC Services industry, specialising in C-Suite and Senior Executive level appointments and providing comprehensive support to firms in this sector. Already he is making a significant impact, by placing CFOs/GMs in North America.
Moreover, we introduced Johnathan Chapman as our Head of Research. With his strategic insights and strong research capabilities, we enhanced our ability to identify and engage top executive talent across all our markets.
These recent additions and divisions signify our commitment to continuously improving our services and expanding our expertise to better serve you - our client's and candidate's unique needs. We now look forward to leveraging these newfound areas to deliver exceptional executive recruitment solutions.

What People Have To Say
I had the privilege of working with Seven Executive for my current role at Lennox EMEA. They have excellent people and communications skills which makes you think, you are the only person they are working with. They explore your ambitions, goals and personality beyond what is stated in your CV and I think this enables them to find the right match for each individual. They are well connected and have great knowledge of the HVAC-R sector. I would highly recommend Seven Executive to any individual or company.
Finding qualified sales and sales management candidates is always a challenge. I've worked with a few recruiters through the years but Seven Executive have the most effective and consistent team at finding qualified candidates. They do a good job in understanding the needs of the role and then very effectively bringing candidates forward for me to consider. And while I am in the US and they are based in the UK, based on their responsiveness and ability to find qualified candidates, you'd never know it. I highly recommend Seven Executive for sales and sales management recruitment work.
I am usually sceptical of executive search firms. My experience working with Seven changed that. They have consistently done a great job for us on hiring people who have stayed with us. They have a good understanding of our sector both in terms of Commercial and Technical positions. Pleased to recommend! Thanks Seven!
Seven Executive are a credit to the recruitment trade, taking their time to fully understand the role they are looking to fill with diligence and patience.

Their knowledge of the industry is second to none, aware of the dynamics of the individuals and companies who are active and relevant. I would recommend Seven Executive for sure.
I was approached by Seven Executive for a role they were working on. The whole experience throughout was an exceptional one.
