Latest News

SH Gillamor Stephens is pleased to be sponsoring Tech Tour and their events across Europe. Paul Gillespie has joined the Advisory Boards for the Deep Tech Summit that will be held in London in November; Photonics event in Eindhoven in September and the Nordic Venture Forum to be held in Copenhagen in November.

SH Gillamor Stephens  focus on building and developing some of the most exciting Deep Tech companies in the world.

We work with hardware and systems companies that are true disruptors in their markets. This includes battery chemistry, EV, space tech (satellites and launchers), photonics, semiconductors, advanced materials, IOT, AI chips sets, flexible displays, solar energy and industrial IoT.

Many of these companies were born out of academic research at leading universities or research institutions and have moved through seed funding, to securing significant A/B round investments and beyond.

Our client base is predominantly across Europe but we use our networks across regions to source talent globally.

We support companies as they define their Board and Executive needs to enable them to grow their businesses. From talent mapping and benchmarking internal expectations with the market, to reaching out to the global talent market and running a retained Executive Search process.

Our passion, expertise and focus makes us the first port of call for investors and Boards.

“We reached out to SH Gillamor Stephens as we looked to hire a CFO. It was not a classic CFO profile as we needed proven experience of both debt financing and of operating in Africa. We worked closely with the team at SH Gillamor Stephens to refine the job specification, which resulted in a strong shortlist from which we have made an excellent hire.”

Simon Bransfield-Garth, CEO, Azuri Technologies

“We always set the bar high in terms of the suppliers we work with and the people we hire. We first worked with Gillamor Stephens to hire a Business Development Manager as we looked to expand our commercial team, we shortlisted some excellent candidates and we make a great hire. We then asked GS to hire a Director of Operations to run our new manufacturing facility, a critical role, resulting in another great hire. Gillamor Stephens has demonstrated the ability to quickly understand our business and its culture, resulting in the successful appointment of key employees. The quality of candidates presented has always been strong and the team always responsive, showing genuine enthusiasm for us and our business. We have been most impressed by the positive feedback received from our candidates, which is something we greatly value.”
