Meet Richard Carter Director, Head of CFO and Leadership Search Practice

Dickie (1)
1. How would you describe yourself?

A Perfectionist; driven; always looking for new experiences.
2. What is your biggest accomplishment?

Passing my Japan Karate Association, Shotokan first-dan (Shodan) blackbelt in Feb, having only taken-up martial arts in middle age.
3. Have you read any good books lately?

I love reading but by the time I get into bed I struggle to get past the first page of any book. Fascinated by history and human evolution, I’m wading through both Silk Roads and Sapiens at the moment.

4. What is your dream job?

I’ve found it. I started life as an accountant but soon realised that how people progress their careers and finding out about what makes them tick was much more interesting to me than spreadsheets. I’m fascinated by the work that diplomats do, although I’m not sure I have the patience or linguistic skills to be one.
5. Who is your personal hero?

Having recently returned from a holiday in South Africa, Robben Island made me appreciate the total heroism of Nelson Mandela.




Meet Ruth Snell, Director at Chilworth Partnership. 

ruth1. How would you describe yourself?

I’m empathetic and enthusiastic someone who is accustomed to managing lots of projects, a natural multi-tasker.

2 What is your biggest accomplishment?

On a personal level, creating my two sons. I enjoy being a parent of boys and do my best to develop & support them including managing their teams on a voluntary basis at Winchester Royals Basketball club. Professionally I would have to say attaining a leadership role with Chilworth Partnership.

3 Have you read any good books lately?

Kick Sugar, written by my best friend’s husband who is a Dentist and an active campaigner to reduce sugar in our society, as it’s everywhere.


4 What is your dream job?

My dream job would be handler for a therapy dog, bringing joy to the elderly, would be extremely rewarding and worthwhile. I am working towards this goal in my spare time by training up my new cavapoo puppy.


5 Who is your personal hero?

Thatcher. Growing up as a young girl in the 80’s, with a powerful female figure leading the country meant I had a positive view about equality and no restrictions on personal ambition.


Meet Rod Hutchings Director, Head of Interim Practice.

1. How would you describe yourself?
Energetic, passionate, humorous and increasingly intolerant!!
2. What is your biggest accomplishment?
Personally my family. Watching our three adult children develop and succeed in their professional and private lives has given me immense pleasure. Thanks to my wife for staying married to me as well! Professionally my career over the last 20 years in smaller, privately owned recruitment companies after 10 years in an international corporate. Watching some of our young graduates grow and mature into highly successful key figures in our current business is really satisfying.


3 Have you read any good books lately?
I’m fairly active so I don’t have much time to read. As a self confessed Francophile I’m self indulging in a recent gift from a close friend, a year’s subscription to the monthly magazine, France. I’m also sharpening up my French speaking with lessons….we aim to spend a lot more time there in the future. I love a good sports autobiography as well!

4. What is your dream job?
Sports journalist. I love all sport and I’m fascinated by the world of elite athletes and top sporting people. I see so many parallels between sport and business and how to achieve high performance.


5. Who is your personal hero?
Churchill, inspirational in a challenging time. I’d like to also mention Matt Le Tissier as a hero. As a season ticket holder at SFC for many years now I’ve seen some truly remarkable players. Matt was one of a select few who you could genuinely say it was worth the entrance money to just see him play. Unbelievable!
