About

Charles VERNON is a boutique executive search firm that partners with technology companies to attain world class marketing leadership. We help build the foundation for faster growth and high acquisition or IPO worth.

Matthew Hinde founded the firm in 2008 and has since worked with some of the world's leading brands and VC backed start-ups.

Arthur Ly joined in 2014 and partners in managing select searches and recruiting.

Our niche in placing only top level marketing leadership roles, limited number of engagements, unique calibration process and deep experience are what sets us apart.

And in Case you were wondering - Who Is Charles VERNON?

Pictured above, some say Mr Vernon was the original turn-of-the-century headhunter. It's been heard he was the guardian of the Bank of England's gold bullion. Others swear he was no more than an avid bird watcher.

Whatever the case, he was no ordinary man.

Catch his descendant Matthew in the right mood and you may just be regaled with the true story…
