About Renaissance

Renaissance was founded in 2003 by Tony Willis, Ben Anderson and Sebastian Kayll when it was spun out of Renoir Christian & Timbers a boutique executive search firm, twice voted European executive search firm of the year. Prior to that Tony and Ben had been instrumental in building two of the most successful recruitment businesses in London; Harvey Nash and Robert Walters, both of which listed on the London Stock Exchange.

Today the company employs over 30 people across our two main offices in London and Menlo Park, making Renaissance Leadership one of the largest Executive Search boutiques in the Technology sector.

In 2018 the UK office was passed by the Founders into an Employer Ownership Trust (EOT) so that all employees are now shareholders in the business. We pride ourselves on the experience of our Partners and Research Directors and the EOT both acknowledges the contribution our longstanding colleagues have made to the business, whilst also providing a long term incentive to carry on growing Renaissance Leadership.
