GAVIN MAUDE

Gavin was born in Zambia and moved to Zimbabwe to complete his education. He began his career with the Royal Engineers of the British Army as a Sapper and was soon ‘fast tracked’ to the Royal Military Academy of Sandhurst.

He graduated to join the Brigade of Gurkhas as an Infantry Officer – a position which took him to Cyprus, Hong Kong, Nepal, Brunei, Kenya, America, Bosnia and Kosovo, where he served in a number of specialist leadership, training, negotiation and operational roles.

After leaving the British Army as a Captain in 2000, Gavin embarked on a career in executive search. In 2001, he was approached to join a private equity backed search and selection firm, where he was instrumental in building a multi-facetted global FS practice.
In 2007, Gavin left to set up Pemberton Partners. He was appointed CEO as the business grew to over 20 people, and in addition to supporting a number of key clients in London he was also responsible for growing Pemberton’s International operations and in 2011, opened it’s office in Dubai

Gavin splits his time between London, the GCC and Europe, where most recently he has expanded the firm’s coverage  into Cyprus, Malta and Montenegro. He actively executes mandates across business and support functions in banking, wealth and asset management, FX, brokerage, payments, gambling and gaming.

Gavin has a direct approach and believes in creating strong, trusting relationships with hiring managers, human resources professionals and candidates. He effectively combines the leadership skills developed from his time in the armed services with broad financial services industry knowledge and 17 years of search and this has enabled him to develop a strong reputation across several markets.

Gavin is married with three children aged 21, 18 and 15 . He enjoys sport, particularly rugby where he has been a successful youth club and county coach, and club sponsor. His other interests are very much linked to his previous life: Gavin speaks Nepalese and where time permits continues to support Gurkhas – both serving and retired. He is passionate about Africa, collecting bushman art and acting as sponsor and coach to Maun Puppies rugby team in Botswana. He has also worked with the Raptors Botswana Research and Conservation, and Central Kalahari Game Reserve Conservation Projects. If you cannot get hold of Gavin, you will find him in his Devon retreat, where he escapes to with his family as often as time and other commitments allow.
