Founders Jason Luckhurst, Boyd Kershaw and Paul Wandless set out to break the mould of recruitment consultancies when they founded their interim management business in 2004. Practicus claims to apply a “sports agent” model to the placement of senior interim managers, aiming to offer the same personalised service that a sports agent would provide a Premier League footballer. It has 75 clients across the HR, finance and project management sectors, including eBay, Nationwide and the NHS. The Henley company plans to expand in continental Europe next year. Its sales have risen 133% a year from an annualised £1.7m in 2004 to £21.7m in 2007.
