Founding Partner of Dixon Walter, Mike is one of the most experienced search consultants operating across the public, not for profit and beyond profit sectors in the UK having delivered keynote board level appointments nationally in Health, Local and Central Government, Social Housing, Regeneration, Arts/Culture/Heritage, and the Third Sector.
His profile is perhaps greatest in Higher Education working closely with universities across all mission groups to deliver both academic leadership and professional services appointments mainly at VC Executive level and typically with a remit to deliver change.
He is also recognised for his work in securing non-executive talent from a wider range of sectors and disciplines to meets the evolving needs and demands of the Boards of these organisations too.
“We launched Dixon Walter in 2015 based on our straight-talking approach and a set of core principles that we feel set us apart from many other search firms. Fundamentally, our services should enhance the recruitment process and add value not just take on those tasks that clients cannot easily manage. Our clear intent is always to deliver appointments that exceed expectations and truly advance the cause of the client.”
