Following the recent appointment of new CEO, John Peter Leesi, Purmo Group is now embarking on its next phase of international growth. To take Purmo Group through the next phase of their growth the executive leadership team recognised the need to appoint a communicator to lead on their CSR and sustainability strategy. Working closely with Linda Currie, Chief People Officer, the Head of CSR and Sustainability would be responsible for developing Purmo Group’s commitment to CSR and develop the narrative.
On working with tml Partners, Linda said:
“We recently partnered with tml Partners to appoint our Head of CSR & Sustainability. The search, led by Charlie and Naomi, clearly demonstrated a comprehensive market map, particularly considering the flexibility on location. They were able to advise and guide us through the process and evolution of the role, and quickly understood what we needed. I felt confident that working with tml Partners meant that we were able to hire the best possible person to develop and drive our CSR and sustainability strategy.”
After a comprehensive search process, considering candidates from across Europe, Sam Hodlin was appointed as Head of CSR and Sustainability. Sam is an experienced communicator having worked for international organisations on employee communications and CSR. Sam has previously held roles at DS Smith, Eurostar, Centrica, Vodafone and KPMG.
Commenting on his experience with tml Partners:
“Naomi and Charlie were both excellent at positioning the role I ultimately accepted and made the whole recruitment process very engaging. They were both always quick to respond and keep me upto date. They gave really helpful advice on refreshing my CV and preparing for the various interview stages and I would definitely work with them again in the future.”
