The Journey

Where we were…

I have been privileged to serve my country and my community both as a member of Her Majesties Armed Forces and as a Fire Fighter. This range of experience has given me the knowledge and confidence to enable me to form Pegasus Executive. An organisation focused on giving back to the Defence industry and assisting Defence focused organisations on moulding their businesses in order to protect us and their homeland both now and in the future.

In forming Pegasus Executive I have drawn upon my training and experience not only from the military and the Fire service, but also from time spent as business consultant in executive search and selection.

Where we are…

Our reputation within the search and selection industry is unrivalled and our commanding global presence has set us aside from our competitors.

We now have even more to offer, spreading our wings to cover not just the Military / Defence arena but many others sectors, including Oil & Gas; Capital Equipment; PPE and Engineering.

Where we are going…

Our primary aim is to be one of the worlds leading headhunting organisations. Our direct yet professional techniques target and acquire the best possible individuals for your business.

In an industry that never stands still, we continue to enhance our contact base and candidate network in all industry sectors.
