We foresee an exciting new era for our business and the executive recruitment industry as a whole,” James said.

During his tenure at RACV, Thomas led a restructure of the marketing function, building a new leadership team and appointing the lead creative agency. 

In his new role, Thomas will be working closely with James to usher in a new era of enhanced service delivery in the executive search industry, with a strong focus on innovation and disruption. The pair has previously worked together, James placed Thomas in the RACV CMO role then collaborating via Ampersand’s advisory arm to drive the growth of the RACV marketing function. 

“I am delighted to be joining a true champion of client and candidate experience, working with Hayley James and the team she has built,” Thomas said. 

“Exec search and recruitment is an area ripe for change and some disruptive thinking.”
