Saxton Bampfylde was founded by Anthony Saxton and Stephen Bampfylde in 1986, with the mission of delivering a new approach to executive search and creating a unique working environment and culture. This remains reflected in our mission statement to this day.
In 2014, Saxton Bampfylde became employee-owned. In what we believe is a first in the executive search industry, we have an elected trustee body who have oversight of the strategic objectives and values of our business and have been recognised as the leading search firm for values. Academic research has shown, employee owned businesses tend to outperform in their sector, are resilient in lean times and are more likely to innovate than other ownership structures.
Saxton Bampfylde has built a trusted reputation over 30 years for finding and nurturing leadership talent right across the public, private and not-for-profit sectors in the UK and internationally.
In true partnership we have championed leadership, working hard to identify, nurture and place the most talented, innovative and strategic individuals to a huge variety of organisations and groups. Our work stretches across the executive and board level, with a dedicated level of consultant expertise and experience across every area in which we specialise.
We value long-standing relationships and the continued success of an organisation; we don’t just help to find leaders, we support our clients by helping both individuals and their teams to develop and realise their full potential.
We are proud to work with some of the world’s most interesting and important organisations, from FTSE 100 companies and blue-chip multinationals, across government and academia, through to foundation trust hospitals, arts institutions and not-for-profit organisations.
