East Anglian Recruitment Company Cooper Lomaz is proud to announce that they have promoted Commercial Director Simon Brown to Managing Director.

Simon Brown joined Cooper Lomaz in March 2016 as Commercial Director, continuing his 12 year recruitment career which has seen him work across the UK within some of the UK’s largest firms.

Over the last 18 months, Simon has worked tirelessly alongside Operations Director Mark Fletcher to establish a new management team based on both internal promotion and external hires. With the underlying ambition of driving growth across the business there has also been a clear goal to re-build, develop and maximise traditional core markets such as I.T and Technical Engineering recruitment for Cooper Lomaz.

Joint CEO Jane Lovell says “Myself and Charlotte Cooper are very excited to have Simon leading Cooper Lomaz as our Managing Director. We believe in the importance of a clear direction for the business and know Simon will give us this” she continues “It has been our ambition throughout the past 2 years to build and develop strong and robust management of the business. As such however we believe it is key to have a management team led by a strong leader with vision and ambition. Again we believe Simon is the right person to do this”

The next 18 months will see further exciting times for Cooper Lomaz Recruitment starting with the newly launched CLR Academy which will see the business recruit a number of ambitious people driven to build a career in recruitment.

Newly appointed Managing Director Simon Brown says “I am immensely proud to have been appointed Managing Director of such a credible and established business as Cooper Lomaz Recruitment. Since joining the business 18 months ago my ambition has been to focus on building upon the excellent foundations which were already in place. I have always believed the brand, relationships and capability of Cooper Lomaz Recruitment represents an amazing offering for our clients, candidates and staff. I am excited to start working with the management team immediately to outline the exciting plans I have for 2018 and beyond”

Simon’s promotion to Managing Director is immediate and Cooper Lomaz employees are incredibly excited to see what the future holds.
