Ben Pountney

Director - Executive Search

Ben joined the Harris Hill Executive Search team in 2018, having helped to establish the executive search brand for another leading recruiter, and with ten years' experience of personally delivering executive search campaigns for charities, membership bodies and not for profit organisations across the UK.

As such he brings more than enough expertise to lead our operations in the South West, based from our first regional office in Bath and recruiting at all levels (including executives) throughout the South West, South Wales and beyond. 

In the past few months alone, Ben has worked on major campaigns involving multiple roles for some superb organisations including The Donkey Sanctuary, and inspiring Plymouth-based organisation Effervescent.

Previously he has also managed numerous high-profile mandates including Plymouth CAST, Heritage Care Group, British Association of Social Workers, Above & Beyond, St Hugh’s College – University of Oxford, City Gateway and the Dame Kelly Holmes Trust. He holds a BA in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Leeds.
