7. Dartmouth Partners
The recruitment firm matching high-flying candidates with high growth companies
Founder: Logan Naidu
Founded: July 2012
Appearing in the Startups 100 for the third year in a row thanks to its unique approach to the saturated recruitment consultancy market, Dartmouth Partners focuses on linking ambitious companies with the brightest and best candidates, starting at campus level, thus uniquely building its network from the bottom up.
Founder and Young Gun Logan Naidu said he started the company in 2012 after “spotting a gap in the market”, and it’s clearly a niche with legs as the consultancy firm now works with some of the most prestigious names in the business world across the financial services, consulting and corporate sectors. With over 100 clients to-date, and an eye-watering£3.7m turnover for 2014, the next 12 months will be spent launching its office in Germany as well as continuing to explore a New York base.
Having grown at around 100% year-on-year since launch, the ambitious firm hopes to achieve the same level of success this year – with its international expansion playing a key part in the business’ growth trajectory alongside expanding into new areas for its London base.
