Expanding finance recruiter appoints new associate director PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 05 January 2017
Woodrow Mercer Finance, a joint venture between FDYL, the Yorkshire-based financial consultancy and recruitment specialist, and Birmingham-based Woodrow Mercer, is continuing to expand with the appointment of Martin Hibbert as an associate director based in its Leeds office.  

With almost 20 years’ experience in the financial sector, Martin worked in private banking for a number of banks including NatWest, Royal Bank of Scotland and Barclays Wealth and Investment Management. He joins from Brewster Pratap where he was a senior consultant in executive finance and prior to that he was an executive recruiter for Venturexec.

With his strong track record in private banking, Martin will be bringing the same personal, tailored service to his new role in which he will be seeking and placing senior finance personnel in interim and permanent positions for businesses.

With a 30 year track record in the sector, FDYL specialises in the search and selection of portfolio finance directors and financial controllers as well as full-time interims and permanent FDs and FCs. In November, it joined forces with £12m turnover Birmingham-based Woodrow Mercer to launch its new senior financial recruitment division. As well as its Leeds head office, Woodrow Mercer Finance also has offices in London, Birmingham and Sheffield.

“FDYL has established an outstanding reputation as a finance specialist – unlike any other firm I know, it is run by active FDs who, therefore, have an in depth understanding of the roles for which they are recruiting,” explains Martin. “By joining forces with Woodrow Mercer, we are now in an even stronger position to use our extensive networks to take advantage of the opportunities in what is a very buoyant market. I am really looking forward to working with such an impressive team of experienced finance directors who share my focus on establishing strong relationships with clients, built on trust and transparency.”

Woodrow Mercer Finance managing director Neil Muffitt added: “Our partnership with Woodrow Mercer is very much about consolidating our strengths and one of our USPs is that we are all experienced FDs, enabling us to really understand what our clients need. With his extensive background in banking and recruitment, Martin fits perfectly with this ethos and will be a valuable addition to the team as we continue to grow.”
