Tribe Client Testimonials Les Mills

"I have worked with a lot of executive search teams both internationally and in NZ, and Tribe stand out. They are redefining what the new breed of executive search is. Their ability to think differently, reach into community groups that others don’t, means that the candidates they find are unique. We worked with them recently on our Global CPO and Global CFO positions, and they did not disappoint. They will push you, challenge you, and are invested in making sure you get the best”.

Tribe Client Testimonials Mercury

"Why do I chose to partner with Tribe? I have worked with both Emma and James, two of the chiefs, for 10 years plus and appreciate their genuine focus on partnership and understanding of what good talent looks like. Tribe's brand compliments ours and has cut through, attracting a high calibre of people, not to mention their research function which taps into inactive talent in the market. We have used Tribe and their specialist teams across many disciplines, at all levels, and have been impressed with the calibre of people they have in their teams. I continue to value their honest commercial advice and I know that they work in a true partnership model to help us achieve our business goals."

Marlene Strawson - General Manager People & Performance, Mercury


"My initial meeting with Sandy to talk about candidate requirements was very beneficial. Sandy was engaged and informed and seemed to genuinely understand the technical need and was keen to understand more about the culture fit.

Communications regarding candidate interviews were great. We had to shuffle a few times and Sandy was very accommodating and responsive. Covid arrived in the middle of the process which added an interesting dimension but I felt the communication remained transparent throughout. Communication throughout negotiation, contact signing and commencement of employment has also been great."

Sarah Hall - Customer & Compliance Learning Manager, TSB

"Sandy is special. I first met her as a candidate and was so impressed with her responsiveness, wisdom & positivity that I didn’t hesitate in partnering with her to create my new People team. A true partner, Sandy listened deeply to understand my vision and long-term goals, ensuring we found people with the right experience and hearts to bring it to fruition. I love Sandy’s energy, her work ethic, commercial wisdom, the fact she sees the best in people and where they will thrive. Together, we’ve secured a winning team for Arvida."

Anna Lyne - General Manager People, Arvida
