Howgate Sable launches Middle East base

We are delighted to announce that Howgate Sable has launched a new base in Dubai as part of our global expansion.

Andrew Bailey has been appointed as Regional Managing Director of the Middle East business, working closely with the UK-based team along with fellow new hire Navin Govind, who has been appointed manager and is also based in Dubai.

Howgate Sable Middle East – located at Dubai World Trade Centre – will operate throughout the Gulf states with the ability to also support on our search mandates into northern Africa.

Andrew Bailey said: “Howgate Sable delivers exceptional work and has crafted an enviable reputation in the executive search world. The launch of the Middle East arm is an exciting milestone for this heritage business and I am delighted to be leading the development of this new venture.”

Andrew’s team will predominantly focus on the financial services, infrastructure, aviation and transportation, healthcare and family-office sectors, drawing on Andrew’s expertise and connections coupled with those of the UK directors.

Andrew has been based in the Middle East for 10 years and benefits from a 20-year career in executive search in both boutique and publicly listed firms across Australia, Asia Pacific and EMEA.

Neil Humphreys said: “In recent years the business has developed a global client base and delivered talent worldwide. Our Dubai operation is the first step towards putting feet on the ground in a key territory to help us forge new relationships and continue to deliver excellence in executive search. I’m delighted to have Andrew in place to lead the charge in the Middle East and look forward to working closely with him to cement the Howgate Sable brand in the region.”

The EMI Practice at Howgate Sable really took the time to understand our situation and find exceptional candidates who could fulfil challenging international leadership assignments for a truly global company with a history that spans well over 200 years.

It was a first class experience and positive outcome on many levels.

 

Barry McDonnell – Director of Manufacturing at De La Rue International

I have worked with the Howgate Sable team on several occasions whilst hiring mission-critical executives. Partnership is the byword for this organisation – they act as an extension of my team and work hard to support me not only in the technical solution, but in the sense of a deep understanding of my specific requirements. Delivery is the key measure of our talent partners and Howgate Sable have always achieved what was asked of them.

Jesper Berg – SVP HR, ABB

Having worked with Howgate Sable as a client and as a candidate I can confidently say their ability to deliver on complex searches is second to none. They not only have a detailed knowledge of the marketplace but also understand the importance of cultural fit. 

Bridget Lea – O2

I was particularly impressed with Howgate Sable’s knowledge and network in the aviation sector, the quality of the candidates provided at shortlist and the availability of Nick and the team to provide us with advice and guidance on candidates when required. Nick was particularly effective in understanding our needs as a Company and being flexible in adapting requirements and plans.

Paul Hutchings – Thomas Cook Group Airlines

I have recently worked with Nick from Howgate Sable to recruit a new Head of Aircraft Operations for Thomson Airways. I was particularly impressed by the wide-reaching search undertaken and the quality of the candidates put forward. The skills match to the brief was excellent and I am delighted with the individual we selected.

Dawn Wilson – Thomson Airways

From their initial call to me the Aviation practice team at Howgate Sable demonstrated a significant difference. Straightforward and to the point, the extent of their network and deep insight into the industry was immediately evident. The added value I have received as a candidate is tangible. An almost instant rapport quickly developed into a focused business relationship which is open, honest, respectful and above all trustworthy.
