We have worked with Bowden Mayes on a number of critical Managing Director searches over the past 6 years. On all occasions, they have been thorough, diligent and very professional in their approach, resulting in best-in-class appointments. Coupled by the fact they are great individuals on a personal level means we can very highly recommend their services.
