Leigh Walsh has over 30 years experience in executive recruitment. Previously, he managed his own search practice under the name Snowdon Walsh Partners. Earlier in his career, he spent a number of years with AT Kearney Executive Search.
Leigh’s search activities have been in high-technology areas, with considerable focus on the telecommunications and wireless sectors. In addition, he has served clients in other sectors, including energy management, enterprise software and semiconductors. His client list includes service providers, product developers, manufacturers, vendors, consultants and systems integrators. They have included every model of organization, from large ‘blue-chip’ multinationals to small entrepreneurial start-ups.
Having spent a full career as a search practitioner, Leigh has encountered every trend and challenge, and developed, tested and validated his best practices in real-time. Leigh’s strength lies in his conviction that, in spite of the advanced state of recruitment tools and resources, there is no magic. The best results derive from exhaustive efforts coupled with a genuine understanding of the position and the client’s pain points.
Leigh studied Engineering at Carleton University.
