The announcement of the appointment of Darren Montagu to the Board of Morgan Hunt as the newly appointed Chief Strategy Officer comes at a time when Morgan Hunt’s core markets face the challenge of an increasingly competitive environment for attracting the best talent.
Darren joined Morgan Hunt on 3rd April 2019, having already been engaged on an interim basis, providing support to the senior leadership team.
Prior to this appointment, Darren spent 27 years working for Hays plc. His career at Hays saw him starting as a trainee recruiter, eventually joining the Hays board as Managing Director of Scotland and Northern Ireland as well as the South East of England. Other highlights of his career include the opening of a Hays business in Holland and building their offering to the Energy markets more broadly.
Daniel Taylor, Managing Director of Morgan Hunt, commented, “I am delighted to have Darren on board. All those who have worked with him will know of his acute knowledge of recruitment businesses and his ability to inspire and drive exceptional performance. His arrival builds on a very positive 18 months for the company and will apply focus to the ambitious goals we have set for the business to achieve over the next four years.”
Darren Montagu said, “After a long and rewarding career with Hays, it’s a big personal decision for me to move to Morgan Hunt. I am fortunate to have worked at Hays and been part of an outstanding group of professionals with a shared belief that it’s the people we employ that are the most important element of a successful recruitment company.”
“My new colleagues at Morgan Hunt remind me of exactly why I invested my career in recruitment. They have the vision, ambition and talent to leverage an already trusted brand to explore growth opportunities from existing operations and through acquisition, as well as attracting like-minded individuals to join us.”
