Alex Martin

Managing Partner

Alex is an innovative leader focused on utilising technology and AI to evolve and upgrade executive talent acquisition services to better meet clients’ leadership needs.

My story

From an early age I have been driven by creating value for organisations.  This led me to found and build a digital marketing business after university, working with a range of businesses to drive sales.  After working for an executive search and interim management firm as a consultant for a couple of years, I joined Boyden UK with the remit of relaunching them as Savannah Group. After three years leading Savannah’s marketing, I saw an opportunity to use technology to evolve and improve our services and moved into a hybrid role with a portion of my time devoted to working with clients to innovate to better serve their needs.

My focus

I lead the team that created and built MapX, Savannah’s proprietary executive sourcing, analytics and reporting platform. My current role is Managing Partner of Talent Intelligence, the team here at Savannah Group that works with clients to answer leadership talent questions, for example: should we hire the internal successor or bring someone in from outside and which location should we choose for to maximise talent quality while minimising cost.  I am charged with developing solutions that more effectively solve clients’ leadership challenges.

My motivation

I look at the how the best professional services firms are adapting their products and services to best suit their clients’ needs. Executive search is a relatively slow-moving industry and the opportunities presented through smart use of AI and technology are enormous.  I am proud to be working at a firm leaning into this opportunity and seeing the tangible benefits of using data and insights to enrich executive talent acquisition outcomes.

Why I like working at Savannah

Savannah is a business which allows the best ideas to flourish. The team is full of bright, creative and energetic people from all walks of life. We are all motivated to evolve and deliver the best solution for our clients. When clients get to experience the ‘Savannah way’, they rarely want to look elsewhere for executive talent acquisition related services.
