New head of client services at tech recruitment firm mthree


Tech recruitment firm mthree has appointed Justin de Ferry as head of client services, to cover its global operations.

De Ferry has more than 20 years experience in recruitment and executive search, working in both London and New York during his career, where he founded and established Boundary Talent International, before joining mthree.

He will manage teams across a number of mthree’s sites, including the UK, United States of America and Asia. His responsibilities include account development of the firm’s existing accounts, and management of senior stakeholder relationships, as well as overseeing teams across three sites.

This new combined, global role will see him mentor and manage the team, developing their focus and delivering on mthree’s capabilities with its existing blue chip financial services clients.

mthree hires and trains emerging tech talent, before supplying them commitment-free for 24 months to leading financial institutions, government agencies and other large businesses across four continents. It was acquired by NYSE-listed multinational, John Wiley and Sons, in a £98m deal in January 2020.

De Ferry brings to the role an established network of senior stakeholders in major financial institutions, which he will leverage to place mthree’s roster of new and emerging talent.

Previously, de Ferry was managing partner at financial markets technology recruitment firm Thomson Keene for 14 years, before founding its American entity and incorporate it as Boundary Talent, a niche executive search firm, for the past 7 years.

Commenting on his appointment, de Ferry said: “I’m looking forward to building on the previous successes of the brand, globally, and promoting mthree, and its service of junior and emerging talent, to an international audience of clients. Creating a solid and consistent approach across all mthree’s sites will help the business reach the next stage of its growth journey.”

Alex Headley, founder and CEO of mthree, added: “Justin is a fantastic addition to the team and will help the business create a joined-up approach to the work it does across its UK, American and Asia arms.

“His experience in international financial services will be invaluable to the role as we continue to provide top-tier emerging talent to the world’s best blue-chip companies. Justin shares our strategic vision of creating career opportunities for talented and motivated people in the world’s leading institutions.”
