Global CEO advisory firm Teneo has acquired U.K.-based Ridgeway Partners, an advisory firm specializing in executive search and board appointments for companies across different sectors.
Ridgeway was founded in 2004 with operations in the UK and US, but the UK team conducted a management buyout in January 2017. Headquartered in London, Ridgeway has been built from a small, affiliated business into a sizeable independent partnership, and has been seeking growth and expansion opportunities in the face of the pandemic.
Its functional expertise includes executive committee roles in finance, IT/digital, risk and HR whilst operating across all sectors. Ridgeway has an industry experience in retail financial services, investment banking, asset and wealth management, insurance, consumer markets, oil and gas, and technology. The company’s Managing Partner Sue O’Brien will continue to lead Ridgeway as part of Teneo. O’Brien’s new title is Chairman of Ridgeway and she will report to Chris Wearing, Chairman of Teneo International.
Ridgeway’s leadership will work closely with the CEO of Teneo UK, Nick Claydon.
