ANDREW COOK

Andrew has worked in recruitment for approaching 20 years and is a co-founder in Pemberton.

He began his career with a FTSE listed recruiter, initially covering Interim and Permanent Finance hires within Financial Services. Subsequently, he played a leading role in building an acknowledged market leading Risk and Quant practice. In 2003, he joined an AIM listed search and selection firm to further develop their Infrastructure practice before leaving in 2007 to establish Pemberton.

With the right people anything is possible.

CONTACT

During his career he has specialised in delivering mandates at MD and D levels across a range of functional areas for a client base that has historically been Banking, Asset Management and Hedge Fund focussed, but which has more recently diversified to include Brokerages, Clearing houses, Exchanges, and Fintech firms. Based from London, he travels regularly to deliver work across Europe, the GCC, North America and APAC.

Rarely short of an opinion, Andrew is known for his open, honest and consultative approach. He is a firm believer in direct communication and partnership in the recruitment process; as well as the benefits of advisory services and active talent pool management.

Personal

Andrew resides in Surrey with his wife and 2 children – who keep him more than busy and on his toes. When afforded time off, he enjoys time in the kitchen, a good glass of wine, and just about any game or sport going, particularly golf, tennis and rugby – some have said that he’s competitive! Now that his rugby playing days are behind him, Andrew busies himself as Treasurer for London Cornish RFC and spends weekend “herding cats” with Old Reigatian RFC U8’s. Andrew holds a BA in Economics from Exeter University.
