Senior Management TeamStephen StottStephen is the Managing Director of the Company. He has spent much of his working career in recruitment. In 2000, he was recruited by Foreign & Colonial and Laurence Rosen as Director for a substantial start-up called Huntress Search. Stephen was thrice promoted, eventually to Managing Director at board level and was responsible for adding 60 million to the Companys revenues by 2007. In 2005, the Company was entered into a MBO, facilitated by Nomura PE, at a valuation close to $105m. In 2009, after 11 years with Huntress, Stephen made the decision to start his own Company and persuaded Laurence to join him in investing in the new enterprise.

Laurence RosenAfter 20 years as Managing Director/CEO, Laurence left the employment of Alfred Marks (Adecco) in 1986 and launched Office Angels Limited. Laurence sold that Company with a valuation of 52m in 1990 and remained as CEO/Chairman until 1998. He was approached by Foreign & Colonial to start up Huntress Group Limited with funding of 5m. Huntress was formed in April 2000 where he recruited Stephen Stott, who led the development of Huntresss technical and IT business. Laurence, as Stott & Mays Chairman, works in the business on a part time basis, though is fully involved in directing strategy and financial matters and acts as an minence grise and mentor to Stephen and his team.
