Executive search and recruitment specialist, TS Grale is continuing to expand its Leeds based team, appointing Sean Rowlands as head of construction and infrastructure, and Dan Thompson as a consultant specialising in facilities management.
Sean has worked as an executive headhunter in the construction industry for the last 10 years and has a wealth of international experience. He will now spearhead the growth of TS Grale’s construction and infrastructure division, which is currently sourcing talent for leading companies in North America, as well as in emerging economies, including China and South America.
Dan has spent the last three years working at one of the UK’s largest recruitment companies. At TS Grale, he now specialises in sourcing mid to senior sales and operational professionals globally, who work in facilities management.
TS Grale currently employs a 12-strong team from its offices in Leeds city centre, and plans to expand to 30 people by summer 2021. Paul Fleming, co-founder and director at TS Grale, said: “We’re delighted that Sean and Dan have become the latest additions to our fast-growing team. They both have impressive track records in the recruitment industry and will play key roles in further developing our specialist offering in the construction, infrastructure, facilities management and engineered products sectors.”
Sean added: “This role is an opportunity to establish a robust international base, specialising in construction, infrastructure and engineering design solutions.
“As a relatively small, but extremely nimble and dynamic team we can quickly respond to market opportunities as well as building on our strong reputation for providing a first-class and quality service. This is particularly important in North America, where service is everything.”
Dan said: “After working for a large corporate firm, moving to TS Grale is an opportunity to join a fast growing, entrepreneurial company at an exciting time. It also means that I can further develop my international experience, which really appealed.”
In addition to working in the construction, infrastructure, facilities management and engineered products industries, TS Grale provides executive search and recruitment services across the industrial, manufacturing, built environment and consumer sectors including food and drink, packaging and non-food FMCG. The company has attracted a global client base spanning the UK, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, USA and Canada.
