Ali is a Partner in the Interim team at Savannah Group

My story

Having worked in Investment Banking in my early career, I fell into Executive Search 17 years ago when I was asked to run a specific project and after a year joined full time. I worked my way to Partner focussing on Technology and Consumer clients within the Interim space. I have always loved the fast pace of Interim Management but in particular I enjoy working with clients to deliver the best outcome possible spending time getting to know them and their organisation. Having more recently worked in-house for a large technology company, I was able to fully comprehend what clients really want from a search firm and how important it is to build a strong relationship based on trust and experience. I am excited to now be part of Savannah, a progressive organisation where collaboration is a big focus. Working with some inspiring people to deliver for our clients is something that inspired me to join.

My focus

At Savannah I sit in the interim team with a particular focus on HR and Operations but I also spend time working to represent the company and all its offerings to our clients. This is a key area and we work collaboratively to deliver the best solution.

My motivation

Working with clients and candidates is what I enjoy best. I love getting to know people as individuals and then working with them to find a solution. Being a trusted advisor is key for me and I spend time reaching out to clients and then working with colleagues to deliver for them. I truly love what I do as I am a people person through and through.

I also enjoy running events with a key focus on Women in Technology and engaging senior women in webinars, breakfast meetings and podcasts.
