Foundation of Relationship

Sherrington Associates have been the preferred executive search partner for investment companies of Medusa Holdings since 2010. Over the years, the Sherrington team have delivered senior management and director-level positions as well as several 'niche' and specialist searches for mid-level positions, becoming a true recruitment partner.

As well as recruiting for Brown & Newirth, Sherrington has delivered senior appointments for Medusa's innovative waste water treatment business Kolina. The success of the partnership is down to shared values of professionalism and innovation when it comes to recruiting exceptional talent. Sherrington has supported clients at both Brown & Newirth and Kolina to develop a winning candidate experience that attracts both 'in-sector' and 'out-of-sector' matches. Through Sherrington's insight and tenacity through the research and engagement phases and Medusa's professionalism and willingness to go the extra mile to gain the trust of star talent, the partnership has been highly successful for over a decade.
