MitchelLake Group Acquires UK’s Tyzack Partners Expands Global Executive Search Capabilities
  • Two pioneering executive search firms come together
  • A combined 85 years’ of global firm operations
  • Acquisition will bolster global board and advisory search offerings
  • MitchelLake Group, a global provider of executive search, board and advisory solutions for digital ventures & transformation has acquired Tyzack Partners (est. 1958), an international executive search firm based in London. The merger strengthens MitchelLake Group’s global executive search offerings, particularly for board and advisory level roles, while expanding the company’s footing in Europe and the United Kingdom.

    The partnership marks a strategic milestone for MitchelLake Group to extend its capabilities to support technology-enabled ventures in the global finance, education, health, energy, sport, media, and consumer sectors. With access to a global network of strategic talent, MitchelLake (est. 2001 in Sydney, Australia) has helped identify and recruit highly skilled leaders for start-ups and global brands in the innovation space. Over the last 20 years, Mitchellake has successfully placed specialist executive and functional leaders across 3,000 projects in 21 countries. MitchelLake has established offices in APAC, the US, and Europe to support businesses and individuals with global ambitions.

    “Our partnership complements our intentionally geo-distributed operating model and adds Tyzack’s decades of experience and reputation in the global executive search industry, allowing us to provide a competitive edge for our customers. We are extremely excited to boost our global board and advisory search offering to clients. This includes building a significant bridge of relationships into the UK and Europe, where Tyzack’s history, networks and relationships run very deep” said Jonathan Tanner, Founder and CEO of MitchelLake Group.

    “We will leverage Tyzack’s network and experience in a variety of sectors, particularly across leisure, hospitality, retail, and media – areas that offer great synergy with our expertise in digital ventures and transformation. We are confident that through this acquisition, MitchelLake will extend its ability to support technology-enabled scale-up ventures that are positively impacting global industries and continue to deliver the highest standards of leadership excellence,” added Jonathan.

    Tyzack Partners has a 65-year history of success in executive search for both public and private sector companies, with a project completion rate of over 95%. The company has extensive expertise in sectors such as leisure, hospitality, information, communication & entertainment, private equity, consumer goods, and technology.

    The acquisition of Tyzack Partners will also see David Dumeresque and Neal Wyman, both Senior Partners of Tyzack, to continue to support and counsel the team as they remain with the business over the coming years. 

    “We can now offer our services in the Asia Pacific region, driving innovation across multiple industries and markets. This acquisition will allow us to access Mitchellake’s geographical and sectoral expertise in the digital space, as a key growth driver in the business landscape, as well as offering access to our clients to a new cadre of executives,” said David Dumeresque, of Tyzack Partners.

    The acquisition is also timely in that 55% of companies globally are open to consider leadership talent based remotely since the COVID-19 pandemic, according to Talent Without Borders, a study conducted by MitchelLake Group.

    Together MitchelLake and Tyzack Partners combine 85 years of firm history, leveraging experience from thousands of successful search completions across five continents, from the transformational board, chair, and advisory appointments, to securing market-making Chief Executives and leadership teams for fast growth to multinational business ventures.
