Berwick Partners originated as Odgers Selection in November 2004. Richard Love (now our current Managing Director) was the first hire as a consultant in EMI (engineering, manufacturing & infrastructure).
Odgers Selection was originally conceived as an advertised selection brand, to provide Odgers Berndtson search clients with a means of recruiting to key leadership positions for the management tiers beneath the level at which Odgers Berndtson normally operated.
Over the intervening years, Odgers Selection grew in size and expanded its scope to reflect its clients’ needs. Consultants with recruitment expertise in specific sectors or functions were hired and the current practice groups developed.
In the summer of 2011, the business rebranded to Berwick Partners, to underline its distinct expertise in recruiting at senior management level within corporates, and SMEs at Board level. Today, Berwick Partners operates from 4 offices in the UK - London, Birmingham, Manchester and Leeds as well as a number of international offices, including here in the US.
As a reflection of Berwick Partners’ success, in Winter 2019, Berwick Partners expanded into the US, opening offices in Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, New York and Washington DC, as well as launching an offering in Singapore giving a foothold in Asia Pacific. The firm also has a presence in the Netherlands and Dubai.
