New Executive Search Firm Launches

Experienced head hunters, Louise Gibson and Jane Gilchrist have joined forces to launch New Town Partnership, a specialist executive search firm, exclusively for the consumer sector

Experienced head hunters, Louise Gibson and Jane Gilchrist have joined forces to launch New Town Partnership, a specialist executive search firm, exclusively for the consumer sector.

Based in Alva Street in Edinburgh’s West End, New Town Partnership has been created to encompass the personal value set that has guided the pair’s success to date;

“We’ve been told by clients that our approach of diligent search matched with commercial understanding, is the difference that really makes us stand out when compared to the ‘old boys little back book’ headhunters.  So we decided to start a practice with those corner stone values – a highly bespoke and directly accountable service, delivered by senior consultants with real expertise in the sector” says Louise Gibson.

Gibson left her role leading the executive search team at Livingston James in August to start New Town Partnership with Jane Gilchrist, who has recently retuned to Edinburgh following a stint in London with leading headhunter,  Cadence Partners.

“We are extremely excited to bring our distinct approach to the market under the New Town Partnership brand, we’ve been talking about this for some time so its fantastic to be officially launching today” says Jane Gilchrist.

The duo, who bring their backgrounds in management consulting and in-house FMCG resourcing together, will be focussed on the large Food and Drink sector in Scotland, as well as broader consumer services such as Utilities, Telecoms, Retail Banking and the growing Digital services sector.
