The Challenge 

Our client, a European trading house, required a Head of Trading, to lead the European power teams. The role was key as it needed to ensure that all risks were regulated and that the capacity of their trading desks or PnL targets were hit. Without this role being filled, it could have resulted in their market share decreasing and the portfolio risk not regulated.


The Solution 

Due to Head of Trading, Neil Jethwa, reputation in the market of placing senior professionals within the industry, this company reached out to Pangea specifically to assist with them with this search. 

Pangea provided it's most successful service, a Retained Search, as it offered the company more resources and a dedicated headhunting team. Neil carried out a full consultative service, which included; understanding the need for the role, their requirements and articulated the six-step executive search process, keeping the client engaged every step of the way.


The Result 

After carrying out a Retained Service for the client, Pangea was able to successfully place their Head of Trading, who was taken from a direct competitor. This individual has now taken control of the whole power desk and represents the company at Board Level. He is also breaking records and attracting more talent to the team!
