Nicholas Barton

Founder & CEO

​​Nicholas founded The Barton Partnership in late 2007 and has succeeded in building a niche executive recruitment firm with an enviable reputation within the Strategy, Transformation and M&A arena. From a standing start, he has built a team of professionals renowned not only for their talent acquisition skills but also their subject matter expertise with offices in London, Europe, New York and Asia. 


Throughout his career he has specialised in, and successfully executed, on over 250 senior retained and contingent assignments across Commerce, Financial Services and Professional Services both in the UK and Internationally.

In his spare time (when such a thing exists) Nicholas likes to spend time with his family, renovating his house (which will be a never ending project), is an avid film watcher and keeps fit by playing tennis and going to the gym.
