About Us

What we do

Stevenson James was established in 2004 and is dedicated to providing executive search services to businesses within the private capital markets. We recognised that our clients required a specialist product centred on investor relations, fundraising, investment, finance and operations activities. As the market has evolved, we have further developed our offering to service the functions of Environmental & Social Governance (ESG) and Digital & Marketing.

What we've done

So far, we have worked with over 250 investment and advisory businesses across 6 continents (we don’t yet know any funds in Antarctica) and we have successfully placed numerous candidates across a number of geographies, businesses and strategies.

Why we're different

We have a unique team with complementary skill sets, which allow us to provide critical insights. We have also been doing this for a long time. Take a look at our team page and see who we are.

Our retained search product is unique, transparent and auditable - call us and we will be happy to come and meet you, talk through our process and explain why we believe it works.

We don’t differentiate between the traditional meaning of 'clients' and 'candidates' - to us every person, business, acquaintance (or even giraffe) is a client.

We are, first and foremost, advisors to our clients.  The senior members of the team are hands-on and deal with every aspect of the search process.

We offer fixed fee structuring as we strongly believe that it aligns everyone’s interests.
