Kerridge & Partners were appointed by KiwiRail 3 years ago to assist in the recruitment of a CEO. Given the issues facing the Company at the time, this was a most difficult task which required an Australasian focus. The resulting appointment has been an outstanding success and led to the firm assisting in the appointment of a number of Senior Executives and, more recently, a new Chairman. Where Kerridge & Partners have excelled is their ability to listen and clearly understand the Company’s needs and culture and then line up appropriate candidates from a thorough search rather than from a pre-ordained list. Their contribution to the recruitment process has been invaluable and of the highest professional standards.
