Meet Our Directors

Clermont's team of specialist consultants are professional, respectful and friendly with over 20 years’ experience.

  • Anthony Brown

    Managing Director

Anthony co-founded Clermont Search in 2009 in response to a gap he identified in the legal recruitment market: executive level recruitment focusing on lawyers who specialise in technology, data protection & privacy.

Prior to this, he spent 15 years in Legal, Technical & Data recruitment, working for a mix of large established recruitment firms, fast-growing mid-sized companies and start-ups.

Anthony is integral to the development and strategy of Clermont’s future growth, as well as ensuring that all deliverables are met, projects are completed on brief and on time, and specialist consultants are consistently delivering a high-class service for our clients.

Anthony is recognised as a thought-leader in executive search and privacy & data protection circles, and is a regular attendee at major global industry events, including International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP) conferences and workshops.

In his spare time, Anthony is an avid football fan, a lifelong supporter of Liverpool FC and a running enthusiast who has completed several marathons across Europe.

  • Sarah Steven

    Operations Director

Sarah co-founded Clermont Search with Anthony Brown in 2009 and has over 15 years’ executive search experience, predominantly within the legal & financial services industries.

Prior to this, Sarah worked in the legal team of one of the world’s largest insurance/re-insurance brokers, and this has provided her with a superb insight into how to work effectively and efficiently with both Clermont’s clients and candidates.

At Clermont, Sarah has overall responsibility for the company’s operational approach and she is integral to us being able to source, train and retain the best talent in the recruitment industry.

In her past, Sarah was a national gymnastic and trampolining champion, and is still an avid gym-goer. Her high-energy approach to life contributes a huge amount of drive and focus to her role as Clermont’s Operations Director.
