After completing his Bar Finals Neale joined a Lloyds underwriting syndicate, writing commercial retail insurances, he then moved to broking house Willis as a senior manager with responsibility for a portfolio of international leisure accounts.
Drawing on his retail and leisure market knowledge Neale joined executive search specialists Tiro, quickly establishing an impressive track record of completing senior executive and board level appointments across a range of disciplines and roles.
In November 2002 Neale along with Gary Buckley and another Director bought the business to create Duncannon Executive Search Ltd, heading up the leisure, hospitality and travel practices. With the merger of the two firms he is looking forward to helping broaden the fields in which he works and being able to offer clients a more seamless search service at both board and senior management levels.
Neale lives in central London with his family, loves to travel, take in new cultures and experiences and one day aims to live part of the year in Rome where he can discover more about what made the Roman empire so successful and long-lasting. He’s an obsessive cricket fan and occasionally finds to time to trek in obscure and adventurous places.
