James is a deeply passionate, engaged, hands on recruitment professional who takes a rigorous and rather relentless approach to finding world class technical leadership talent.”
James is a pleasure to work with – professional, responsive and insightful.
I met James and was immediately impressed with his understanding of the need to recruit the right type of person; someone who could take over the technology piece from a founding CEO who had had tech as “his baby” since the business was founded.
James not only ran an incredibly hands-on, structured and documented search process, he brought clear strategic thinking with a bias towards execution and results
James not only delivered an extremely strong CTO, in fact in terms of experience, surpassed our expectations, but he also managed to self-drive the project, work and collate stakeholder requirements and work with the candidates to ensure all parties were aligned.
I have, and will continue to recommend James in a heartbeat.
We have a first class candidate already working with us less than 8 weeks after appointing Albany.
I found James to be energetic and highly engaged throughout the process, and he found us a top quality candidate.

James came recommended by our investors, and was a pleasure to work with
He truly understood the mandate, and the importance of cultural fit, and went above and beyond, juggling 8hour timezone challenges to source a world class leader and convince him to move continents to take on the challenge!
Many search firms say they can hire in any sector. We chose Albany because they only work with CTO’s/heads of product in the PE/VC backed digital/tech sector – and that focus was evident in their detailed knowledge of the talent in this sector and the extent to which they were able to match the best candidates to Quill’s specific needs.
James did a great job for us in running a search for an EVP Engineering
Albany ran an absolutely first class CTO and Head of Product search for Quill. I would highly recommend them.
I would recommend you consider Albany for your high-level recruitment in the technology space.

We have the closest relationships with the European CTO and CPO populations. This gives us an unrivalled network.
We employ the best in order to find the best. To ensure we deliver exceptional results we have built our own knowledge systems to support our teams.
Generalist search firms are limited to where they can attract talent. Because we are specialists, we are free of constraints.
We are dedicated to enabling a smooth end to end process in order to deliver success.
There is a shortage of great CTOs and CPOs and everyone is pitching to them and selling their story. At Albany, we are absolutely relentless in our professionalism and every candidate is targeted individually and with precision.
We work in this tight space everyday and therefore we know who is active. The result is a super fast and thorough process.
