On Thursday 16th May 2013 Berwick Partners, along with their colleagues at Odgers Berndtson and Odgers Interim, hosted the Annual Midland’s Consumer & Retail Dinner bringing together over 65 well respected business leaders from within the region. We were delighted to have Jonathan Hart, CEO of Thorntons PLC, as our guest speaker. With his warmth, enthusiasm and open style Jonathan helped to create a well received evening of topical discussions. He also shared with his audience some extremely helpful and valuable insight in to his experiences at the helm of Thorntons. The mood in the room was one of positivity along with a recognition that businesses need to be more flexible in their approach and truly understand and meet the needs of the consumer going forward.
Commenting on the event, Alka Gandhi from the Berwick Partner’s Consumer Practice said ‘’As the UK’s leading executive search firm, our group is truly committed to the Midlands and seeing this event grow each year only goes to further endorse our belief in the value of the talent within the region.’’
