Paul Botting

Paul began his career at M&S and had 25 years as a senior retail operator before becoming a professional  interim including retail operations director appointments.  He then moved into executive search

He holds a wealth of experience in interim placements and many years at the heart of the interim industry, including three years as Chair of the Interim Management Association. Paul brings unparalleled knowledge of the interim market place and population. In addition he ran a major retail and consumer search practice for permanent hires at one of the biggest and respected executive search

Paul is an NED at Barracuda, originally joining to build and develop a senior interim practice to sit alongside the existing search business.

“Having spent many years in retail myself, I recognise that the industry has always had a requirement for flexibility, even more so today. As a result I have always been a champion of interim as a flexible resource to be deployed at critical times and for important opportunities. Equally key is that search and interim working alongside each other is the senior headhunting model of the future”
