Mike Morris who previously spent 5 years with Essentia, following 2 years with Hydrogen and Drummond search left us as a Managing Consultant. The reason for this was to embark upon a journey (3 years in total) to develop his commercial understanding and to experience the inner workings of a Big 4 firm. He joined KPMG in 2014 where he was the Account Manager for the Risk Consulting practice with responsibility for recruitment across Financial Risk Management, Forensic and Technology. After a successful 6 month secondment client side with the Ministry of Defence team, Mike returned to the KPMG recruitment function to run their Senior Hires offering. Last week, and after many months of negotiations, Mike returned to Essentia as our Commercial Director with a big smile on his face.  Even on day 2 of his first week it was clear that Mike was back with a network of contacts and knowledge that we hadn’t seen before. Later that week we took Mike white water rafting at the LeaValley Olympic Park.
