Ellwood Atfield acquires Mondo Executive Search

October 2017. Ben Atfield commented on the acquisition

I am delighted to announce that Ellwood Atfield has acquired Mondo Executive Search, an international executive search consultancy specialising in the corporate affairs, communications and sustainability functions.  The two founding Partners, Dani Brown and Rufus Bullough will further strengthen our position as the leading communications and advocacy headhunting firm, supporting senior executives and their teams. Dani and Rufus bring a unique mix of working with Boards and Executive Committees, who understand the modern blend of skillsets required where performance, purpose and reputation meet. This means that we now have the largest team of senior headhunters in the marketplace, and Dani and Rufus’ track record and perspective will bring our clients new and exciting insights into the evolving corporate affairs agenda.


Dani and Rufus are experts in recruiting leaders who shape change through developing and implementing compelling commercial narratives, frameworks and policies.  Their business grew in response to the climate of political uncertainty, business model disruption and the speed of stakeholder engagement where reputational impacts are more frequent and more damaging than ever before.  They have worked with a range of clients, both in the UK and internationally, including Mars, British Land, The Co-operative Group, BP, AXA, Bechtel, Syngenta and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development in both executive and advisory positions.

Dani and Rufus commented that

We are thrilled to join Ellwood Atfield. We have always admired them, particularly their culture, their extensive track record and commitment to communications and advocacy. Our experience of appointing senior leaders and advisors across corporate affairs, communications and sustainability will complement their existing leadership team, further strengthening Ellwood Atfield’s offering. We are excited to be part of the team”.


As Ellwood Atfield goes from strength to strength we welcome speaking to other senior leaders within our industry who may also want to join us.
