Steven Gross - VP, Unilever

During the last 10 years Jim Mundell and Manners Maclean were always my first port of call when looking to fill senior positions in Unilever. Jim’s ability to quickly understand (from both an organizational culture and talent perspective) what we needed, his knowledge of the talent market and his network of key talent meant that we always received a quick response and, a shortlist of blue chip talent which ultimately resulted in successfully filling key vacancies.

I highly recommend Jim and Manners Maclean to any organization needing leadership search and talent acquisition services.

Frederic Landtmeters - President Canada, Molson Coors Beverage

I had multiple opportunities to discuss talent and fill senior commercial positions with Jim Mundell and Manners Maclean when I was a CMO/CCO for Starbev & Molson Coors in (Central) Europe. As a hiring manager, I found it important to talk to someone like Jim, who has a clear vision on talent, an extensive network across Europe and beyond, and who spends time before, during and importantly also after the hiring process to ensure the recruited talent lands well. I highly recommend Jim and Manners Maclean to any organization needing personalized talent acquisition services.

Ranjan Das – Henkel

Manners Maclean International was selected by Henkel as one of our preferred recruitment partners for the India, Middle East, Africa & Turkey region in December 2019.

In my previous capacity as Henkel’s Regional HR Business Partner Laundry & Home Care, as well as in my current capacity as Henkel’s Head of Human Resources Sub-Saharan Africa, I’ve had the opportunity to work with Manners Maclean on many search and recruitment assignments for roles based in Nigeria. Manners Maclean consistently delivered, regardless of the location of the search. I found Manners Maclean to differentiate themselves from other firms as they have a thorough research methodology which is tailored for each search.  They are extremely diligent and always cover as much ground as is required for every assignment.  Their consultants are experienced and act as an extension of your organization and behave as a genuine partner.

Dalia Salib – General Manager, Mars Egypt

Robert Gordon & Manners Maclean puts a high level of quality work and diligence though-out the recruitment process. He successfully manages to offer solid guidance as well as give strong clarity on expectations while being warm, friendly and genuinely caring.

I strongly recommend him as a highly capable Talent Acquisition expert.
