Entrepreneurs not employees
We all have to start somewhere, and we’d love you to start something here. Astbury Marsden solves problems for clients and creates opportunities for candidates, so why not its own employees too?
Mark O’Reilly – International IntrapreneurHaving joined the business as a manager in 2006 and over the years that followed succeeded in building a variety of teams, Mark saw an opportunity to grow Astbury Marsden's presence in the Far East. So in typical antipodean style, he packed up his swag and relocated his family first to Hong Kong and then to Singapore. Over the last few years, he’s turned our brand in Asia from unrecognised up-start to regional leader.
Paul Bennie – Bennie MacleanPaul joined as a consultant in 2004. With a twinkle in his eye and an endless supply of quips to entertain the office, Paul established himself as key member of the Astbury Marsden team. Having long harboured an ambition to one day create his own business, Paul eventually chose to give it a go. For the last seven years he has been making his dream reality at Bennie Maclean. Like many Astbury Marsden alumni, Paul remains a good friend of the company who first gave him an opportunity.
Alex Horner - Horner and RobertsAlex joined Astbury Marsden in early 2011 focussed on building our operations business in Singapore and Hong Kong. With little presence initially, the Singapore office built the business to working with many of the top tier banks and funds in the region. After returning to the UK at the end of 2012, Alex decided to set up the recruitment business Horner and Roberts, where they’re already doing great things to differentiate themselves from their competition
Jamie Stokes – The River PartnershipJamie joined Astbury Marsden as a consultant way back in 2003. Although he was part of the MBO team in 2007, Jamie couldn't shake the desire to build something of his own. And that's just what he's done, establishing the River Partnership as a leading firm helping its clients to build winning teams. We still keep in regular touch with Jamie, seeking one another's counsel and sharing our experiences to our mutual benefit.
Jon Gilbert, Commodity Trading IntrapreneurAfter joining in 2010 and always remaining quietly ambitious, Jon set about quickly demonstrating his leadership and commercial ability. It was while rising to become managing consultant through determination and great billing that Jon became excited by the possibilities of building a business in the specialist area of quants and commodity trading. He managed to get us excited too, and he now has freedom, support and encouragement to build an outstanding business.
