In Q1 2015, SPMB total revenues were up double digits year-over-year, annualizing at nearly 50% growth. Additionally, the company was proud to successfully put two of its key Directors, Chris Johnson and Brandt Walker, into client-facing project leadership roles.
“On behalf of all our Partners, I’m thrilled by our business results,” said Andy Price, one of the firm’s Managing Partners. “We’re closing more searches, growing strongly but sustainably and outperforming on every metric. But when we think about what’s really important after delighting clients, it’s about growing amazing people and watching their careers take off. Nicole North epitomizes everything we’re about. She’s brilliant, tenacious, passionate, lives for clients and has incredibly high standards. No one deserves it more.”
Mrs. North has been an executive search consultant in the consumer industry since 2004. She specializes in recruiting C-level executives across all functions for category leading and defining companies in ecommerce, digital media, consumer electronics, digital health and food technology, to name a few.

“I’m thrilled to be a Partner in this phenomenal organization and look forward to working with the team to further our growth and leadership in the market,” said Mrs. North. “It’s an exciting time for SPMB as we’re experiencing tremendous growth and success, expanding into new geographies and industries and building an incredible team. The consumer practice, which I’ve been fortunate enough to help lead, has become the fastest growing practice in the firm and is just one example of how powerful our platform is across all industries.”
Mrs. North was promoted three times inside of three years, rising from Associate to Director to Client Partner, before recently being named Partner at SPMB. She progressed through the company’s rigorous performance measurement system as fast as any Partner in the firm’s last 10 years.
