Adrian Adair is also appointed to the board of directors, the first new appointment in 20 years
Morson Group has added to its senior team with the promotion of Adrian Adair to group chief operating officer and David Lynchehaun to group sales director, with Adair also taking a seat among the Morson Group’s board of directors.
The pair have amassed a combined 14 years with the Morson Group, with Adair first joining as operations director and Lynchehaun as head of client development. Together, they bring more than 33 years’ industry experience and a united vision of delivery, working closely with all directors and management to position the Morson Group as the go-to strategic recruitment partner of choice across all sectors, both in the UK and overseas.
Celebrating its 50th year in business, the family-run Morson Group is a respected name across numerous technical sectors. By cementing the Group’s variety of client and candidate solutions, Adair and Lynchehaun’s focus is to drive growth in core markets and other target verticals such as IT, technology, professional services and infrastructure.
Morson Group CEO, Ged Mason, commented:
“Morson is a company full of passion and ambition, and we’re recognised not just for the exceptional talent services, design consultancy and opportunities that we provide both internally and to our clients and candidates, but for our commitment towards remaining true to our roots and retaining our family values.
“These exact values are what sets us apart in our marketplace and I’m proud to witness my colleagues’ journeys within our business and to see talent like Adrian and David continue to progress, as we build on our team of experienced directors. There really are no limits to where the Morson Group can go and we’re focused on delivering further growth as we continue to evolve our offering and portfolio of businesses.”
“A clear strategy and commitment towards our people and innovation has enabled us to reach where we are today and I’m extremely proud to be taking a seat at board level and to form part of the ongoing legacy of the Morson Group.
“We invest heavily in the Morson family of companies to mirror the needs of our stakeholders and I’m committed to ensuring that our senior teams represent greater diversity of backgrounds, genders, perspectives and more, with our 30+ future leaders from across the business comprising more than 60% females and an average age of 34.
“I’ve always admired the board’s thinking in that there’s no finishing line and also that what got us here, won’t keep us here. It’s this exact sentiment that both David and I embody in everything we do, and we work hard to ensure that these company core values are upheld.”
“The Morson Group has solid growth and brand equity in a number of marketplaces and last year’s record £866m turnover demonstrates just how strong and unique our offering is. We’re committed to evolving our client solutions into those that are truly world class, through continued innovation, training, appropriate acquisitions and organic growth.
We are focused firmly on the future to make sure we become not just the go-to choice, but a long-term strategic partner for our clients and candidates by meeting their evolving needs and maximising return on investment through our incredible added value proposition.
“Huge demand for specialist and volume labour thanks to national infrastructure programmes, major projects like HS2 and a buoyant construction market, and not forgetting to also mention the unprecedented growth in IT and digital vacancies, makes it an incredibly exciting time for the Morson Group and we are proud to be building on 50 years of entrepreneurial excellence.”
As one of the world’s largest privately-owned recruitment businesses, the Morson Group has made significant investment in its leadership team and staff infrastructure, with each promotion and appointment strengthening its reputation as one of the most forward-thinking and ambitious recruiters, and a significant player in global labour markets.
