Harvey Nash appoints industry expert to enhance Leadership Services

February 13, 2012

Harvey Nash Group plc, a global provider of professional recruitment and outsourcing services, announces the appointment of Lucy McGee to head up the Leadership Services practice within their Executive Search division. 

LONDON, March 14, 2012
Lucy was a director of Europe’s largest psychometric test service provider and business psychology firm, and, before that, was part of the European management team of a US-headquartered HR consulting firm whose clients were major multinationals. 
More recently, Lucy was a director of one of London’s largest mental health trusts, where she led the development and implementation of organisation-wide vision and values, and produced the Trust’s first marketing strategy. 
Lucy is a respected commentator on selection and talent management issues, has written for the IoD and the Economist Intelligence Unit, spoken on the BBC and at CBI and CIPD events, and been extensively quoted in the HR press. 
Nigel Parslow, UK Managing Director, Harvey Nash Executive Search said: “Lucy brings the experience and knowledge we need to help us better support all our clients in building their leadership talent. She combines broad-based business experience and deep understanding of talent management, having been both strategist and business leader in a number of organisations. This, combined with a track record of significantly developing leadership capacity with a wide range of UK and international clients, means that we’re delighted to welcome her to Harvey Nash Group to energise our leadership services business.”
Lucy said: “There are very few organisations that can offer the balance of a truly entrepreneurial culture with values-based leadership, but Harvey Nash certainly does. Its focus on service and long-term relationships is one of the reasons it’s still a fast-growing company and I look forward to being part of the team in this dynamic, client-centred environment. To match our broad client base – from SMEs to Fortune 500 and FTSE businesses – we will have a menu of offerings so that we can work flexibly with clients to meet their needs.”
