Market insights

Airswift, the global workforce solutions provider for the energy, process and infrastructure sectors, has formed a bespoke executive search firm, Ducatus Partners. The new company, which brings in an industry leading team, will operate independently of Airswift, delivering executive search, market intelligence and related consultancy to clients across the energy value chain.

The core team of Kevin Davidson, Sean Buchan and Jamie Ferguson will lead Ducatus Partners. Together the team has more than 45 years’ personal experience of matching companies and investors with the C-suite, board-level executives and leadership teams, most recently at Maxwell Drummond. Ducatus Partners will harness Davidson, Buchan and Ferguson’s proven ability to access both established and emerging leadership talent at an international level, by leveraging their extensive network and world-class research capabilities.

Peter Searle, CEO 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.”

Working in partnership will enhance the range and reach of both companies’ services. Together they will have an unrivalled insight into market challenges and opportunities, and be extremely well placed to develop innovative, intelligence-led solutions for both clients and candidates.
