For the past 3.5 years, Alistair has worked with a boutique executive search firm, which catered primarily to PE clients, where he was responsible for driving the firm’s entry into the US market. During his tenure, he helped establish the company’s foothold in the US where he worked on a wide range of mandates.

Prior, he spent eight years with Business Talent Group, an on-demand talent platform for top-tier consulting resources and interim executives, which was recently acquired by Heidrick & Struggles. Alistair was hired as an associate when the company was just a start-up and played a key part in helping the company scale significantly . While he worked across all major industries (healthcare, industrial goods, tech, CPG, and retail) in his final year with the firm, Alistair led the relaunch of the PE vertical.
