“This planned move has been in the making for over a year to ensure leadership continuity. I am thrilled to be handing over the reins to Dan and Sarah and look forward to seeing the organisation continue to flourish under their leadership”, says Cooper. 

Of the news, Rupert Fordham, Chairman said: “Sue’s outstanding record at Morgan Hunt and her status within the wider recruitment industry speaks for itself. In that time, Sue has grown the business from an SME to a medium-sized enterprise, developed an outstanding leadership team and built on the organisation’s brand and reputation as the trusted public services recruiter.”

Both Taylor and Wynn came to Morgan Hunt with strong recruitment backgrounds having held senior and board positions in Hays and Badenoch & Clark respectively and have been supporting each other as Deputy Managing Director’s at Morgan Hunt for the last 6 months. 

“We are excited about Morgan Hunt’s future”, says Fordham. “Our core markets in health, education and housing have huge long-term potential and Dan and Sarah, with their energy and experience, are the right people to lead the business into the next phase of its growth. I am very much looking forward to working with them as we continue to grow both our core businesses and develop new markets in both public and private sectors”, continues Fordham.

Taylor says of the appointment, “It’s been great to have transitioned into this role in such a sensible way. Sarah and I are now ready and excited to get stuck in and deliver the strategic plans we’ve been formulating over the last six months and deliver the next fundamental growth in the Morgan Hunt story.” 

“We’ve developed a fantastic culture at Morgan Hunt. With the support and collaboration of a great team of people, Dan and I will continue to drive Morgan Hunt’s success both as the primary public services recruiter and an employer of choice”, says Wynn.
