Compass rebrands and strengthens management team

David Sayers

Compass Holding Group has rebranded and strengthened its board with the appointment of a managing director of its Executives brand.

Its rebrand to Compass Recruitment Solutions (CRS) forms part of the company’s ongoing development, as it looks to continue with its international expansion and scale up through acquisition and organic growth in recruitment and executive search in the independent care, education and life sciences markets.


David Sayers, who brings more than 25 years’ executive search experience in the private equity backed, FTSE listed and privately owned industries, has been recruited as MD of Compass Executives.

His role will also include spearheading CRS’s ESG drive both internally and externally.

Group MD Sam Leighton-Smith said: ‘David brings a substantive, global track record within the finance and commercial arena and will continue to drive forward our international plans.’

Sayers, who sits on the board of trustees at the charity Mind, added: ‘I am naturally delighted to take over the rapidly expanding executive search offering – Compass Executives – and will be working with my team to look to expand on what is already a highly impressive track record across the senior leadership team, and the non-executive teams of their client base.’
