Sean Williams said:

“I believe success in business is mainly about ‘who is on the bus.’ If you get the right mix of talented, driven, fun and team-oriented people on the bus, then you can take it anywhere. I am chuffed to be on the Tenzing bus.”

Simon Stevenson joins Tenzing to drive its origination program with the advisory community as well as to support portfolio companies with their senior talent needs and ambitions. Simon has had a very successful entrepreneurial career in both executive search and business development, having founded and built up a number of successful search firms not least of which included Stevenson James.
