Russell succeeds Fluidata’s Founder Piers Daniell as CEO, who is stepping up to the Chairman role.
When I was approached by Harry at Erevena I wasn’t actively looking to change roles, therefore confidentiality and trust were crucial if I was to be able to explore the opportunity.
Harry established trust early on and explored whether I could be a good fit in terms of culture and experience before taking things further, saving time.
Throughout the process he was excellent and performed a strong liaison between myself and the recruiting PE firm. The end result was placing me in a role that is a great fit and an opportunity that was too good to refuse
