Stephen will carry on as Managing Director and Co-Head of the Global Banking and Private
Equity practice in the US and member of the Group Management Committee.

Tim Sheffield, Chief Executive, said “I am delighted to announce that Mark has joined us. He brings a wealth of experience and is a strong addition to the team in North America as well as to the Sheffield Haworth Group. Despite these challenging times we have remained committed to continuing our international growth strategy and look forward to announcing further hires in the near future".

Prior to Sextant Partners, Mark also worked for eight years at CT Partners, where he founded the firm's Global Financial Services practice and was a member of the firm's leadership advisory board. He worked previously at D.S. Wolf Associates and Smith Hanley Associates.

Before entering executive search, Mark held a series of sales and marketing roles with a leading financial services publisher. He received a BA from Gettysburg College in business administration.

Commenting on the pending transition, Tim Sheffield continued “I would like to take this opportunity to thank Stephen for his significant work in establishing our North American business and to recognise his considerable efforts in building a first class team. We're at the five-year point in the US and Stephen is to be duly congratulated for positioning SH Inc. such that it has become a 'Firm of Choice' across the US financial services landscape. We now have a unique opportunity to maintain the growth trajectory of our New York business with a handover to Mark for the day-to-day management and freeing up Stephen to stay out in front with our clients”.

Results Validate Increasing Activity Observed by Executive Search Firm
FRAMINGHAM, Mass., May 5, 2009 –Polachi Inc., a provider of Access Executive Search™ services to technology, clean technology, private equity and venture capital companies, today issued the results of an online, executive outlook survey which polled over 100 senior professionals—67 of which were CEOs—in the technology industry. The survey revealed that more than half of the respondents (54%) indicated they are either currently hiring or are planning to hire over the next three months. The survey results come on the heels of increasing consumer confidence reports, (The Conference Board Consumer Confidence Index, 4/28/09) and growing public sentiment that the US recession may be nearing an end, (“Consumers are more Hopeful Worst Is Over for US EconomyAssociated Press 4/28/09).
“There is no denying that the last few months have been tough for all industries, but across the board we are increasingly seeing our clients move forward with strategic hires and new business opportunities,” said Peter Polachi, Partner, Polachi. “These survey results validate our own observations in the industry and we are very optimistic about growth in the technology industry in particular.”
Of the executives currently hiring or planning to hire, 93% predicted that demand for senior talent at their organization will either remain steady or increase over the next three to six months.
When asked to rank the following skills in order of importance—domain expertise, ability to wear multiple hats at once, new business development, international experience and leadership during challenging times—the executives favored leadership to global experience. Over 84% of the respondents indicated the ability to lead/manage during challenging times was either “very important” or “most important,” while only 33% selected global or international experience.
Not surprisingly, the survey results revealed considerable belt tightening amongst senior executives over the last six months. For example, a strong majority of the respondents (79.8%) indicated that they reduced discretionary spending, more than half (58%) instituted a temporary salary freeze and nearly one quarter (23.5%) halted bonuses to senior executives.
The survey, developed by Polachi, was distributed in mid-April 2009 and completed by 122 senior executives at small to medium-sized technology companies throughout the United States.
