Season 5 | Ep 28 – Matthew Eames on why he still loves the daily challenge of growing Eames Group after 20 years since inception!!

9 June 2022|In Podcasts|By Sean Anderson

On today’s episode I was joined by Matthew Eames, the Founder and CEO of Eames Group, a global insurance and financial services recruitment agency with circa 140 people across UK, EU, Asia and now the USA

Matthew was a guest on The RAG in Feb 2019 and whilst the business was a similar size back then, things were very different. Most notably:

  • Matt was not the CEO at the time and spent 50% of his time externally facing in business development and exec search
  • The business operated 5 days a week in the office
  • Matthew personally had a 3-hour daily commute 

Now approaching the 20-year anniversary of the business, Matt is again the CEO and more excited about the growth journey than ever.Whilst grand exit plans seem to be on the agenda for most owners in our industry, Matthew proves that you may enjoy the role too much to want to step away any time soon!
