It's with great pleasure that I'm able to introduce you to MacGregor Black, 'The Complete Talent Partner' to the Consumer, Food, Drink & Retail sectors.

My responsibilities include planning the strategic direction of the company combined with a proactive level of operational leadership.

At MacGregor Black, we are building a best-in-class recruitment company that has the interests of our employees, candidates and clients at the heart of everything we do.


Since 1999 I have been building and leading consumer & retail recruitment companies across the UK and Europe, supporting a vast portfolio of clients and candidates, from entrepreneurial SMEs through to many of the world’s leading brands.

I develop high-performance team cultures within a true meritocracy, where recruiters and their leadership teams are given the best opportunities to thrive and flourish in their careers.

My experience ranges from multiple site international business growth, a successful sale transfer into private equity ownership (including post-sale management) and multiple company brand merger.

Spare Time

When not busy with the family, I like to find time to travel, watch a little Munster rugby, entertain friends and tend to my herd of Dexter cattle at home in Northumberland.


If you’re interested in a confidential discussion regarding career opportunities or a client looking to secure top talent within the sector, please don’t hesitate to get in contact.
