Heather Barnes

Partner, Technology & Digital Practice

A member of the Technology and Digital Leaders Practice, Heather has over 16 years’ experience connecting global clients to their future talent to help shape organisational success through significant data and digital transformations.

My story

After gaining a Masters in History from the University of Edinburgh, I joined the Digital & Technology team at Boyden before going to Korn Ferry and The Miles Partnership in the Information Officer and Board practices respectively. I re-joined Boyden (now Savannah) in early 2016.

My focus

Garnered from 16 years in the technology & digital executive search space, I draw on a plethora of experience across all facets of the technology and data landscape to act as a trusted advisor to clients, helping to shape the future talent landscape that will drive significant digital, data and product transformation. I work globally across the FTSE350, PE and the Fortune 500 and have a deep interest and expertise in the data and digital domains.

My motivation

The culture of collaboration and team spirit at Savannah is truly unique. Coupled with that, I have been fortunate enough to build some wonderful relationships with clients and candidates. It’s a privileged position to act as trusted advisor in the digital and technology space.

I am a strong advocate of Diversity & Inclusion and am proud that through my role, I am able to help champion diversity in tech through initiatives such as our Women in Tech breakfasts and talent exchange programmes.

Why I like working at Savannah

The people are a main reason that I like working at Savannah. The client-centricity, the willingness to go the extra mile, and the depth of expertise are second to none, and it is all done whilst enjoying the company of my colleagues.
