“…Wilton & Bain are amongst the very best.”

Having worked as an interim executive myself since 2003, I have a great deal of experience of the interim market from the point of view of both a client and a candidate. Without question Wilton & Bain are amongst the very best. They focus on working with a select number of candidates who are known to them and are of the highest quality. This together with their straightforward and transparent approach has meant they have been able to find for me the right calibre of people very quickly, people who know their subject, who have credibility and who can hit the ground running.


Carolina Costa, CEO, Orange Labs

“They found me some of my best people!”

“Before finding Wilton & Bain, I interviewed and tried to work with a number of alternative executive search firms. However and so far, only Wilton & Bain has fully met my expectations. They are professional, knowledgeable and a joy to work with. I always have the feeling that my current search is the most important they have ever done. It has been a real pleasure to work with them over the years. They found me some of my best people! I would wholeheartedly recommend them!”


Alex Mathewson, CEO, Pinnacle Communications

“Slick, efficient, insightful and honest.”

“Wilton and Bain were slick, efficient, insightful and honest from the very first meeting.”


Andrew Powell, COO of Colt Technology Services

“Unique and specialist leadership skill.”

As any organisation traverses significant periods of change the skills it will require sometimes differ from those they already hold. Colt Technology Services having faced such a challenge in recent times required a flexible interim resourcing partner who understood the size and complexity of the task ahead and who could take the time to understand the culture of the day and the culture to be created such that when senior interim leadership with specific focused skill sets were required the fit was seamless. Wilton & Bain have provided unique and specialist leadership skill with functional expertise to help Colt through this transition. I would not hesitate to recommend them highly as a partner of choice should you be faced with a similar set of opportunities.

“Their depth of network is unrivalled.”

Firstly, Wilton & Bain Management Solutions have been a great partner for me by finding me high profile and challenging opportunities. In addition, they’ve helped me to build a team whilst I’ve been E-Commerce Director here. During a period of rapid growth, within an organisation launching a new business channel, their understanding of our requirements and the quality of people identified took a huge strain off our team and enabled us to get the highest quality people for our growing organisation.Their depth of network is unrivalled and they only represent the best, they are a trusted partner who I will be using for all key hires in the future.


Sohail Qadri, Chief Transformation Officer, Telefonica

“This is a firm committed to delivering…”

My experience first-hand in engaging the Management Solutions team was second to none. They demonstrated an in-depth understanding of my challenge, speed of response, and outstanding accuracy when identifying people for the team I subsequently engaged. This is a firm committed to delivering and innovating for their customers. A true business partner to drive change.
