BarrettClark Executive Search and Duncannon Executive Search were founded independently and have a combined 40 years in search operating in complementary markets. The companies have joined forces as “BCD Search” to provide an unparalleled service advising clients in the global hospitality, leisure, events, retail and consumer sectors. 'We recognise that the requirements of every company we work with are different and therefore our approach is simple – we create a truly bespoke and personalised service that is built around our clients individual needs.'
BarrettClark was founded in 2001 by Simon Clark. At the time, Simon was one of the very few people in the recruitment world who specialised in the international leisure sector and grew the business through recommendation and spotting great talent for clients. Step forward and BarrettClark Executive Search has an enviable client list working with some of the most recognisable or extraordinary companies in the consumer and leisure industry. The company is renowned for its world class candidate collateral, finding extraordinary candidates and a bespoke search process focused on C-suite, board and executive management.
Duncannon was founded in late 2002 to drive a more bespoke search product into areas previously disregarded by the more corporate search firms. They pride themselves on having a rigorous process which seeks to mitigate the risk that clients take when they commission a search. Research is their key differentiator and they believe this is often a critical but undervalued portion of the search process. They have always focused specifically on ensuring top-class capability and have been frequently praised for the lengths they go to in background work to ensure they deliver the right candidates. Over the years, Duncannon have made numerous Board appointments in the retail, leisure, hospitality and travel sectors.
