Founder Nick Vaughan Returns To Hamlyn Williams As CEO
  • Sep 01 2023


Hamlyn Williams, a global specialist recruitment consultancy with offices in USA, Europe and the UK, is delighted to announce the return of its founder, Nick Vaughan, to the position of Chief Executive Officer, effective 01/09/23.

Nick Vaughan initially stepped away from the business in 2019 to spearhead Selligence, a technology startup that builds technology to enable the digital revolution within sales and recruitment.

This time spent into the technology sector has equipped Nick with a wealth of knowledge and expertise in the intricacies of cutting-edge technology, AI and given him exposure to innovative sales approaches that will be beneficial to Hamlyn Williams' operations.

"My journey with Selligence has given me an entirely new perspective on both leadership and technology. The future of work is about leveraging tech and AI tools to understand people and anticipate market needs. Hamlyn Williams’ next chapter of growth will incorporate technology with cutting-edge sales and leadership techniques, more commonly seen in high-growth tech organizations. This will revolutionise how colleagues, clients and candidates interact with us as a business, and I'm thrilled to bring this vision to our driven team at Hamlyn Williams".

Vaughan also commented on the continued success of Selligence: “I am delighted to leave Selligence in very capable hands, and I am confident they will continue what I started”.

This change in leadership comes at an opportune moment, as we are seeing inflation begin to stabilize and the economic outlook improve, companies within Hamlyn Williams’ core markets are once again building for the future with expansive hiring programs. Considering this, the company is strategically positioning itself to double down its core focuses on Life Sciences, Financial Services, Professional Services, and Engineering sectors by modernizing recruitment, optimizing placement quality, and ensuring its clients and candidates receive unrivaled service. This is summarized in the newly announced vision to “Be The Ones to Beat”.

Nick, and the wider leadership team’s commitment to innovating recruitment is not just about adopting new technologies. It's about reimagining how we approach our markets, how we engage our clients and candidates, and how we set ourselves apart as the gold standard in recruitment.

With Nick Vaughan back at the helm, Hamlyn Williams is excited to cement itself within the new era of recruitment, leveraging the best of technology and human expertise to deliver unparalleled value to its stakeholders.
