It’s been a while since we brought you an update on our very own MM Athlete and founding Managing Partner, Ken Morrice. 2023 has been an exceptional year for Ken, as he represented Great Britain in several European and World Championship competitions across Europe. These competitions showcased Ken’s remarkable talent, endurance, and commitment as he competed against some of the very best athletes in his age group from around the world.
Despite travelling across the globe every month for the past 5 months to compete at this level, Ken has also managed to continue to run a successful business with MM Search having just ended their fifth year of trading on a high, seeing a 32% increase in revenue from 2022.
Ken says: “It’s been quite a journey this year, and I’m immensely grateful for the hard work, support, and dedication of the team at MM Search. The support I have received from the team, my family and friends and my wider network has truly blown me away and this is what motivates me to keep going. When I am competing, I can give it my full focus knowing that Derek and our incredible team have everything under control. It’s their unwavering commitment and drive that makes us stand out in the executive search industry and helps us forge meaningful partnerships with our clients.”
This year, Ken competed in the World Aquathlon Championships in Ibiza, the 2023 European Standard Distance Triathlon Championships in Madrid, the European Aquathlon Championships in Menen, Belgium and the World Sprint Triathlon Championships in Hamburg. Last weekend he travelled to Pontevedra Spain for his final competition of the year which was the World Standard Distance Triathlon Championships. With exceptional consistency, Ken secured an impressive 9th place in each of the European races and 13th across the World championships.
The team at MM Search proudly support and sponsor Ken, with our logo emblazoned across his chest, visible on a global stage as he competes. More recently, Ken has joined forces with Tempus Clothing who, like MM Search, are a challenger brand making noise within their industry. They are leading the way in making quality and environmentally friendly cycling apparel and in Ken’s words; “it is some of the best cycling gear I have ever worn!”
Stacey from Tempus told us what the partnership means to them:
“Tempus is honoured to stand by Ken as he embarks on his remarkable journey as part of the GB Age Group Team, showcasing our products and brand on a global stage. We truly feel that together we are writing a story of determination and achievement and are part of Ken’s success story.”
Ken had some extra special supporters join him at a few competitions this year – his wife and two sons in Hamburg, and his dad in Belgium. While it added pressure, it was offset by his biggest fans seeing him compete at this level in person.
As the Championships come to an end for this year, MM Search begins their 6th year strong, partnering with new clients to transform their senior leadership hiring. Our commitment to long-term clients remains, helping to shape their teams across every discipline from Operations to Sales, Marketing to Tech. There is lots to come from MM Search and as a committed MM Athlete, Ken may or may not have mentioned potential IronMan 2024 participation… Stay tuned!
