Holmes Noble
Holmes Noble is an executive search and consulting firm that prides itself on being different, thereby standing out from the ‘herd’. Founded in 2005 by the Chief Executive, Michelle Carson-Williams, because she wanted to provide a more strategic and partnership based service to her clients, where the industry had been known to be very transactional in nature. To this day the DNA of the firm is permeated with this desire. Consequently, not only does the firm provide executive search, it offers a complete portfolio of services, including leadership coaching and development, and interim management.

All organisations, no matter which market or sector, depend on the right talent for the right role at the right time. This is no different at Holmes Noble. The Executive Team and Heads of Practice have been chosen because of their experience, reputation, sector and functional knowledge, and belief in the founding principles of the firm.

In today’s world, where the right talent can propel a business to the top decile of performance, having the support of Holmes Noble means that you have the best talent partner by your side. Being an agile firm means that Holmes Noble is more flexible than the ‘big six’ of executive search, and you can be assured of satisfaction because each and every one of our clients are important to us. We don’t survive because of being in the ‘big six’ club, we thrive because of our commitment to our clients, resulting in repeat business as we become a trusted partner. Furthermore, as part of the INAC network, a strategic alliance of like-minded firms, Holmes Noble is able to offer a global presence and service.
