I have worked with Karina at Robinson Hambro for a number of years and have been struck by her ability to work across a huge variety of cultures, from the biggest multinationals to family businesses and ‘third sector’ clients. That breadth of experience is very valuable to us at C.Hoare because it means she can ‘join the dots’ and give us thoughtful, tailored advice which leads to long term benefits for us

Finding an organization which understands the needs of a Board and its Chairperson is very difficult. Finding such an organization or person who also understands global issues but within the UK network is nearly impossible. Robinson Hambro fills that void.

Robinson Hambro found a wonderful trustee for our cancer charity. We needed a City figure with a strong interest in cancer and a good knowledge of corporate governance. RH found us a bank CEO with just that profile. The process was smooth and simple.

I could not have done the job at Cable & Wireless without a consigliere.

Robinson Hambro’s Karina Robinson has a deep understanding of business and a vast array of contacts both in the British-American and the Spanish-Latin American cultures, to a degree very few people ever reach. She has experience, knowledge, intuition and a refreshing ability to explore new avenues and to think out of the box. Without her, my progression from the Diplomatic Service to a portfolio career in a new arena would not have been possible.

Once again we have had a very smooth and efficient recruiting process for a Non-Executive Director for Berry Gardens.

This is the 2nd such recruiting process and from spring 2014 all of our NEDs will have been recruited via Karina and her team. We would have no hesitation in highly recommending Robinson Hambro for an assignment in any sector.
