Learning more about our people: Dan Rymer, Head of Consumer

Who is Redgrave?

We are an international entrepreneurial search firm who care more than most.

What do you think makes Redgrave special?

I guess it’s our people. We’re all so different from one another; it’s a really eclectic bunch of people. But we’ve got one common goal, and that is to go the extra mile for our clients and deliver every time, no matter what.

How does Redgrave add real value to clients?

We’ll push you. We’ll challenge you. We’re straight down the line. But it’s sometimes our job to partner you and extend your thinking, helping you to hire a better quality of candidate and really raise the bar of the sort of talent that you can attract.

What do you most enjoy about working at Redgrave?

I guess it’s the freedom this business gives me, the freedom to be myself. The quality of people that I’ve got around me helps me grow and learn every day, and that keeps things fresh.

What is your proudest moment at Redgrave?

The first FTSE100 CFO that I ever placed went on to become FTSE 100 CFO of the year. When he was invited to the awards ceremony, he was allowed to bring two guests, and he invited me to join him. Being up on that stage with what turned out to be one of the nicest people I’ve ever worked with and seeing him thrive like that was the proudest moment ever.

What was your first job?

I had a few little jobs flipping burgers and what have you at weekends, but my first real job was performing in the West End cast of “Grease.” An amazing experience—the excitement as the curtain went up the first time, etc. Absolutely one of the most exciting things I’ve ever done.
