The only european search boutique exclusively moving C-level commercial executives into VC-backed businesses

Our Clients Words

  • Investor, Leading VC

    We found Kate to be consultative and delivery focused. Our brief required a deep understanding of the sector and the shortlist was exactly on brief. Forme Partners is a differentiated concept and one we would support.
  • CEO, SaaS VC Backed Business

    Searches have always been efficiently run with Kate. Her challenge around a role and candidates is of a high standard. My network who know of her say she is a stand-up advisor and I would agree.
  • Investor, Leading VC

    Working with Kate has helped us on several occasions get the brief right from the beginning, deliver exceptionally strong shortlists and results. She manages key stakeholders well. I would recommend Forme Partners highly on this basis.
  • CEO, Private Equity Backed Tech

    Kate knows her stuff - she has a good feel for business and the best fit. I regularly call her for her take on the market, ideas on different types of candidates and would certainly mandate her on relevant C-level searches.

    We understand the need for pace, but do not compromise on the quality of delivery
