James Davies-Love

Principal, Talent Intelligence

James has 10 years’ experience working within the search industry. He has worked internationally with a broad range of organisations, primarily across the FTSE, PE, Fortune 500 and AIM. He is a member of the Talent Intelligence practice specialising in technology, innovation, and data.

My story

I have been working in search since I graduated, both in the UK and South America. What really attracted me to the industry was being able to interact with industry-leading executives from all around the world, while getting to understand exactly what makes them successful.

My focus

Having spent the majority of my career focusing on executive search, and specialising on leadership roles within the technology function, I have taken the opportunity at Savannah to support in the establishment of the Talent Intelligence practice. This has allowed me to apply my expertise in research to develop new technologies and analysis, to support organisations on a broader set of talent challenges. I am passionate about creating insight and intelligence that allows organisations to make the most informed decisions about their business.

My motivation

I love having a say in how a search is conducted. Savannah gives researchers autonomy to set the search strategy and adjust the methodologies depending on their individual strengths.

The aspect of my job that I enjoy the most is having such a varied workload; no two days are ever the same. We have the good fortune to work with a huge variety of clients, from giant multinationals to small regional firms. Learning about what makes them prosper is an unending source of intrigue.

Why I like working at Savannah

The most important aspect of Savannah to me is the people behind the brand. The culture of the company is incredibly welcoming and encourages you to think outside the box.
