A trio of Maxwell Drummond International (MDI) alumni will head up the industry’s newest executive search firm.
Airswift today confirmed the launch of its latest business venture, Ducatus Partners. The new company will be led by Kevin Davidson, Sean Buchan and Jamie Ferguson – former MDI leaders.
Peter Searle, chief executive of Airswift said: “The launch of Ducatus Partners gives our clients a dedicated executive search capability, led by some of the best and most widely regarded individuals in this space. Their sector knowledge and market intelligence means they have access to potential leaders that their rivals cannot hope to match. The team’s experience and expertise, combined with our global footprint and comprehensive package of workforce solutions, gives our clients an unrivalled opportunity to work with a single, trusted supplier.”
Together the trio have more than 45 years’ experience.
Kevin Davidson, managing director of Ducatus Partners added: “Our approach to business has always been focused on delivering excellence, operating with integrity and ensuring transparency at every stage of our relationship with clients. So we are delighted to be working with Airswift, which is committed to the same values. Working together we’ll continue to deliver outstanding results to our clients, while still retaining the independent customer-focused service which sets both companies apart.”
Earlier thisyear , MDI was forced into liquidation. A company spokesperson said the firm’s demise was “partly as a result of the downturn in the oil industry”.
MDI was founded 1994 and had offices Aberdeen, Calgary, Houston, Rio de Janeiro and Singapore when it folded.
