Carmichael Fisher Rebrands As Moorland Gray
Carmichael Fisher, the executive search firm specializing in board-level and senior leadership hiring in the Middle East, Turkey and Africa, is to rebrand as Moorland Gray as it prepares for regional and global expansion.
Led by Managing Partner Craig Pointon, who came to the region in 2006, Dubai-based Moorland Gray opened its UAE office in 2007 and since then has completed more than 1,000 searches in the region. The Moorland Gray team has expertise in both localisation searches and global mandates, relocating talent to the META region.
The rebranding follows Moorland Gray’s partnering with Accel-KKR, a private equity firm. The new brand and investment from its private equity partner will enable Moorland Gray to grow further within the GCC, the region and internationally, principally in emerging markets. The company may eventually seek an Initial Public Offering.
Mr Pointon said: “Uniquely, we have developed as a company in the region for the region, with a long-term team that has built up a great deal of expertise. This rebrand and the capital we can now deploy following our private equity investment will enable us to grow further in the Middle East, Turkey, Africa and beyond.”
“The region is an important economy globally, and as a strategic hub and gateway, its executive talent needs continue to grow. The Moorland Gray name may be new, but Craig and his highly professional, tenured team have been together for more than 7 years and continue to hold strong client relationships. Accel-KKR is keen to partner in the firm’s growth,” stated Greg Williams, Managing Director, Accel-KKR.
Moorland Gray’s clients include government entities as well as multinational and local businesses in industries including healthcare, pharmaceuticals, life sciences, banking and financial services, aviation, real estate, engineering, technology media and telecoms, consumer goods, energy and education.
