Matthew Draper appointed as Jepson Holt Managing Director

29 Apr 2014

MattJepson Holt are delighted to announce the appointment of Matthew Draper to the position of Managing Director, with immediate effect.

Matthew has been with Jepson Holt for six years and we are honoured that he has decided to accept our invitation to take up the Managing Director role at a time when our business is going through a period of growth.

Appointing Matthew as MD helps us to make sure we are in the best possible position to assist our clients as the economy continues its recovery from the dark days of 2008 and law firms begin to plan their next steps within the new legal marketplace.

We have recently seen significant upturns in business, particularly across our  retained search services and we believe now is the ideal time to appoint Matthew to a position where he can continue to help our clients as the business grows.

The industry as a whole is on the lookout for employees with highly specialised skills, experience and knowledge; something which our retained search business function has always helped to provide.

As firms continue to embrace their specialisms, we will be there to help them find exactly the sort of employees they need to grow their firms in the brave new market of the legal industry in 2014, further augmenting their existing services or growing into new market segments.

With a wealth of experience in this sector, Matthew will be working closely with our consultants to ensure they are perfectly positioned to continue to help our clients to find the right people to meet their ambitious growth plans.

Before joining Jepson Holt in 2008, Matthew began his recruitment career in 1997 working for one of the first executive search companies to operate in the legal sector in the UK. He has also worked in Asia for a leading global search firm, undertaking mandates for investment banking legal teams and global corporates. This makes him one of the most experienced legal recruiters in the market at the moment.

We are delighted to announce Matthew Draper as the new Managing Director of Jepson Holt and hope you will join us in welcoming him to the role.
