Press release: Paul Burnell steps down as CEO of Redgrave due to family illness

London – Redgrave, a leading executive search and leadership advisory firm, announces a strategic leadership transition as Paul Burnell, the current CEO, steps away from his position due to unforeseen family health concerns. Following his tenure as CEO, Paul will be assuming a new role as Chief Commercial Officer, allowing him to continue supporting his clients while also prioritising his family’s needs.

During his time as CEO, Paul played a pivotal role in shaping Redgrave’s reputation and ambitious growth plans. Speaking about his transition, Paul Burnell expressed, “The decision to step down was not taken lightly, but after careful consideration, I have decided to step down from my role as CEO to focus on my family’s needs. However, I remain deeply committed to serving our clients and supporting the growth of Redgrave. When I return to business as usual, I will take on the role of Chief Commercial Officer, which allows me to continue fostering valuable client relationships while still being able to dedicate more time to my family.”

Paul’s invaluable expertise and insights will continue to be an essential asset to our company as he remains on the Board, reporting directly to me in his new capacity. With the utmost confidence, we are entrusting David Angel with the day-to-day leadership of the business. Having worked in a leadership role at Redgrave for nearly 10 years, David has a deep understanding of our values and goals and is ideally positioned to deliver the next phase of growth.”
