We are announcing today the appointment of our new Managing Director, Mark Darby.

Mark joins us to spearhead our ambitious plans for growth, and was previously President of Staffing 360 Solutions, a Nasdaq staffing business trading out of the US and UK. In a 20-year recruitment career he has been responsible for major recruitment brands such as Berkeley Scott, Quantica, JM, Longbridge, Clement May, CBS Butler and RK Accounting and Finance.

The announcement comes following the resignation of current Managing Director Simon Brown who has been in post for the past 2 years.

Jane Lovell, co-owner of Cooper Lomaz commented

“We are extremely grateful for all of Simon’s excellent work over the last three years. Mark now joins us at a hugely exciting time, as we enter our 30th year of trading, with the brief to scale up our business significantly. We are very excited to have attracted someone of Mark’s calibre to Cooper Lomaz and East Anglia, and can’t wait for him to help us shake up the local market.”

Simon Brown said

“I am immensely proud to have been the Managing Director of Cooper Lomaz Recruitment over the course of the past 2 years. I would like to thank Jane & Charlotte for the opportunity I was given two years ago along with my fantastic team for all their support.  I have however made the very difficult decision to move onto pastures new.  I know Mark is taking over a fantastic business which with his experience, ambition and desire I am sure will go onto achieve great things.”

Mark Darby added

“Cooper Lomaz has been a powerhouse of the specialist recruitment scene for the last 30 years and I am really excited to be bringing my skills and experiences to the business and its team.”
