Alastair Paton, Managing Partner of Signium UK and Vice Chair of Signium’s global board, said:
The recognition of Paul’s international expertise in leadership consulting is a real complement to the impact he has made in less than 12 months at Signium. Andrew Dawson’s deep expertise and high profile in the energy, transportation, infrastructure, and broader industrial sectors helps us build on our existing UK capability in these areas. Dominique helped pioneer executive search in private practice in the UK and has an unrivalled global network in law firms as well as with General Counsel in the corporate world. In her new role, she will help grow Signium’s business across all 45 offices.’
Paul added ‘Signium’s consulting background and C-level contacts are a natural fit with leadership consulting services, and it has been gratifying to see the offering gain such deep traction with Signium’s global client base.  I look forward to building on this with colleagues around the world’.
Andrew said ‘I have followed the growth of the business in the UK over the past few years and saw their global agreement and rebranding to Signium in 2016. I feel that Signium offers me the opportunity to help lead the UK’s industry practice while also working with like-minded colleagues around the world. I am also excited to be able to introduce Signium’s leadership consulting capabilities to my clients’.
Dominique commented ‘Since we joined Signium, we have harnessed our expertise in the legal sector to a truly global organisation with key offices around the world. Signium’s consulting roots and leadership expertise has provided an obvious and complementary fit to our offering. I look forward to continuing to work with the Signium partnership in further developing Legal and Professional Services’.
