Rob is a Principal consultant in our IT & Digital Leadership Practice. Based in the West Midlands, he recruits IT management and leadership professionals, with a focus on serving clients in the manufacturing, industrial and infrastructure sectors. Rob is supported by his PA Georgia Nation.

Rob has over thirteen years’ specialist recruitment experience working with UK based PLCs and SMEs, including privately held and private equity backed businesses in growth and transition phases. He has particular experience partnering with CIOs and other business leaders to identify and hire IT Directors and ‘Head of’ IT functional roles. This includes appointing leaders in Service Management, Operations, Delivery, Data, Software, Security, Architecture, Projects and Business Partnering.

I am passionate about building deep and meaningful relationships with IT Leaders and supporting future and established leadership talent to progress their careers in Technology, whilst working with a diverse client network of start-up/scale up businesses and established enterprise organisations.

Prior to joining Berwick Partners, Rob worked for a global recruitment business, where he most recently ran a successful regional IT and Technology practice covering the Midlands market. In this role he managed a team of consultants, whilst personally delivering IT leadership appointments across all sectors.

Rob is a History graduate from the University of East Anglia. He is married with two young children and is a passionate football supporter, regularly attending games at West Bromwich Albion. He also enjoys watching Formula One and is a member of a local running club.


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.
