Who We Are
IP Executive is spearheaded by Doug Bates, one of the co-founders of Intelligent People. Doug earned his spurs delivering retained assignments for a leading city based head-hunter, where he specialised in Director and Partner level hires for what was then the Big 5.
Doug has subsequently been immersed in the rapidly evolving digital and eCommerce sector and, in his own words, believes “candidate identification is actually the easy part, the key to delivering in this market, where every candidate will have multiple or counter offers, is having the relationship with both parties to ensure that the engagement is proactively managed from day 1 and that sometimes rapidly shifting expectations are accounted for and kept visible.”
Doug is supported by one or several of a team of 15 consultants dependent on brief and assignment level.
