This week, MM Search promoted Andrew Jardine to Client Engagement Manager, making this the fifth internal promotion within the company in the past two years. This comes in the same month as the company announced the prestigious distinction of being named one of the Top 5 Executive Search Firms of the Year by Manage HR. This significant accolade acknowledges our dedication to providing the highest quality service for both our clients and candidates.

Andrew’s journey at the company has been quite eventful to date. Aird Jardine, Retail Director at Trespass and a former colleague and mentor of Derek MacFeate during his time as a Graduate Trainee at Marks & Spencer, reached out after seeing the success of our MM Intern program. The programme launched in 2021 through the Entrepreneurial Scotland Saltire Programme and Aird enquired about the possibility of his son joining the team. After an impressive interview with Andrew, MM Search initially offered him the role of Client Engagement Executive, which he balanced part-time alongside his Marketing and Sports Degree at Stirling University.

Andrew used his work experience to his advantage – even basing his dissertation on Employer Branding, the secret to success in executive search with a focus on MM Search. Andrew will graduate with a First Class Honours in Marketing and Sports later this summer. 

Dedicated to supporting and nurturing internal talent, Founding Managing Partner Derek MacFeate says: Our fast pace, collaborative and people-centric approach to Executive Search requires the right people behind the scenes to deliver the message to prospective clients. Andrew has played a crucial role in expanding our client base through business development, market insights, and networking. His unparalleled drive and determination have contributed significantly to his success, and we are delighted to acknowledge his achievements by promoting him to the position of Client Engagement Manager.

Ken Morrice, Founding Managing Partner adds: “Andrew is an integral part of the MM team. His personality and commitment sets him apart; he is resilient, competitive, and passionate – three key character traits we seek in all of our team members. We are excited to see what will come over the next year and beyond.”

Following Ken’s example, Andrew is always on the move. He has successfully juggled university, work, and delivering the highest quality results for MM Search, all while serving as the Captain of Biggar RFC. MM Search takes immense pride in sponsoring Andrew as a player at Biggar Rugby Club through our MM Athletes program.

Andrew’s promotion comes in the final quarter of MM Search’s fifth year of trading and marks a significant period of growth for the company following the recent appointments of two senior Associate Partners, Lindsay MacLeod and Rachael Brooks, earlier this year.
