He witnessed first-hand how technology companies, regardless of commercial maturity, struggled to source and retain high calibre sales leadership.

The Alcon Maddox mission is simple, we match great people with great companies so that great things happen.

We work as a true partner to our clients, rather than simply accept a vacancy profile and flood clients with potential candidates. We aim to develop a greater understanding of our customer’s business, consult on the vacancy and support role design, and then engage our unique Talent Targeting System that identifies and nurtures the most valuable candidates in the market, to provide a high-quality pool of qualified candidates.

Our vision is to continually challenge the way that quality talent is sourced and developed, driving improved commercial performance globally.
