Joel is Chairman of Fortune Hill, FHR and Hire Window.
Fascinated by human performance, and how attitude affects an individual's success, Joel began his career in Executive Search in 1999.
Prior to launching Fortune Hill in 2008, Joel spent 7 years gaining valuable insight working client-side with high-growth businesses.
Latterly he was the Recruitment Director at HomeServe PLC where, during his time with the business, market capitalisation increased from c£300m to more than £1.5bn. He was previously Director of Executive Recruitment for the Caudwell Group of Companies, one of the largest and fastest growing privately owned businesses in the UK.
It was in gaining this experience that Joel realised how often Executive Search providers "get the search so wrong"; relying on existing contacts only and providing a poor experience to both client and candidate. Consequently, he established a research-first approach and instilled within Fortune Hill the mission to deliver "both exceptional results with world-class service, and put the interests of candidates and clients above our own".
His mission, "to make a positive difference", extends well beyond his professional life as Joel is equally committed to his family, eating well, and his football team. He is also currently leading a campaign, leveraging the resources of Fortune Hill, to eradicate homelessness from London.
