Veteran head-hunter Ken Dalgleish has teamed up with three other former directors of Munro Consulting to launch a company targeting the UK executive search market.
Aspen, which will be headquartered in Glasgow, had previously been operating as a stand-alone business within Munro.
Dalgleish, a joint founder of Munro Consulting and Munro Solutions, is joined by Donogh O’Brien, Catriona Mackie and Nigel Fortnum at Aspen.
He said: “Aspen will deliver a partnership service, not merely a recruitment product.
“We will work closely with leading UK organisations to help them fill their most senior positions at executive and non-executive level.”
He said the new firm will build on the directors’ relationship with long-standing clients as well as establishing new customers in its target markets.
The company is on course for a first year turnover of £1 million and aims to double its fee income over the next three years.
