AB Graphic International is a niche, family-owned, capital equipment engineering business. With annual sales of c£100m, we are a global leader in print finishing machines, with manufacturing locations in the UK, Germany, and Spain; sales offices across Europe, as well as North and South America. We appointed Jonathan to lead the search to find my successor, as the future CEO of the business, based on his previous success in helping us appoint a new Operations Director. With our location in East Yorkshire an important factor in the process, and the requirement to find an experienced and successful leader of a capital equipment business, this was always going to be a challenging search. Jonathan and his team had to work hard on our project by going back to the market on several occasions. Whilst I am sure that may have been frustrating at times, their professionalism always won through, and we eventually found the candidate we wanted. I would recommend Jonathan, and Berwick Partners, for any similar strategic leadership roles. 

CEO, A B Graphic International

Communication from Simon was excellent. He worked with us, understood the brief well and the profile of candidates we were looking for; both searches had 2 phases and by the 2nd phase, both reached successful conclusions with high quality candidates secured for both roles. Easy to work with, feedback from candidates themselves on their interaction with Simon (and Lisa) are very good and professional which helped candidates view of Shoal Group and the quality of agency we had engaged with for these appointments. We are pleased with the quality of candidates secured. 

Shoal Group, Managing Director

The support provided by Sandra and the team has been excellent throughout our recent search and recruitment for a new Chief Executive. Sandra provided appropriate levels of support, sound advice and a thoroughly professional service. We greatly valued her support, advice and management of the process, which meant that we were able to concentrate on the candidates. We are very pleased with the successful outcome and feel that we have located the right candidate.

Jonathan and the team handled a high profile General Manager job for us. Jonathan took the time to understand the company in detail and gave us an excellent short list of candidates. We were fully kept up to date through the process and ended up with an excellent recruit. We would definitely work with Jonathan and his team again. 

Divisional Director, Porvair PLC

I like working with Corinne as she is honest and will always advise you of the challenges with the assignments she puts you forward for.  I found this helped with managing my expectations of the role.  She provided great support to me when my CV needed to be amended by highlighting some specific JD related skills.  She has also being proactive with finding a new role for me and more importantly the roles that match my skills.  Finally, she has always allowed me to provide an insight on possible changes ahead.  Simply wonderful and refreshing to work with.


Excellent communication and frequent follow ups from Simon. Oriented on detail and very good research on candidates.

General Manager EMEA

Rob had good experience in both the software technical aspects and a good understanding of QLM’s general needs. He joined the dots very quickly and presented multiple strong candidates, many of whom were not looking for a new role until this opportunity was presented to them by Berwick.  Once again Berwick has delivered for us, and we will use them again.
