"As CEO of the SPOT Group, both myself and key members of my senior management team have engaged the services of Adam Gadenne of Knight Street to recruit for a series of high profile positions within both Spicers and OfficeTeam. For many years, I have personally entrusted Adam with highly-confidential information as to the strategic and tactical direction of both of our businesses, which he has handled with discretion and commercial sensitivity. Furthermore, Adam always works tirelessly and with great enthusiasm, knowledge and skills to generate a first class shortlist of high quality candidates, resulting in successful recruitment. I have no hesitation in recommending Knight Street to any organisation seeking to commission the services of a highly-professional, well-connected and resourceful recruiter.”
