Meet the Team – Martin Searle

wat-meet-the-team-martinHow would you describe your job to someone who knew nothing about the executive interim search industry?

I would say we’re a business that introduces experienced, talented Executives to clients to help them with short to medium term business issues.

What inspired you to work in the industry?

I never thought I’d work in the industry but the Interim proposition intrigued me.  I liked the concept of selling short-term engagements using the wealth of seasoned talent available in the market across all sectors and functions.

Who is the most influential person you’ve ever met? (And why).

My Mother.

What’s the one thing that gets you out of bed in the morning?

Apart from the Greyhound demanding a walk the fear of failure rather than the drive to “succeed”.

What’s your biggest career achievement to date?

Turning around the SAI-Global Professional Services Business just after listing.  It certainly had an effect on my hairline but hopefully not my lifespan.

What’s the best thing about working at Watermark?

The People, Brand and business model.

If you never had to work again, how would you spend your time?

Seeing more of my family and friends, touring the world seeing bands and box more often.
