As a boutique firm we have unlimited access to the talent pool, with no internal competition for candidates, nor prohibitive off limits. We carefully manage non-competes and never take on competing searches.


At Lygon we are pioneers in board advisory and executive search. Trust is at the heart of everything we do. We provide an independent perspective, working in partnership with our clients on their most critical leadership issues. Every search is a promise to deliver and our clients get the time, focus and experience of a partner, backed by the whole Lygon team.

We take on fewer searches and dedicate more resource and energy to each assignment, aligning our interests with those of our clients. We advise and steer boards and management teams through non-executive and executive change, through growth, transformation and change. We are proud of what we do and that our work is of huge social as well as commercial significance.


We would like to extend our best wishes to you and your loved ones during this difficult time. Our thoughts are with all those affected by Covid-19 and the people working to care for them.
We put the health, safety and well-being of our employees, clients, suppliers and visitors first. We have asked all of our employees to work from home, because it is the right thing to do and as advised by Government. Our team is fully engaged with access to all our systems and we are meeting every day to complete current assignments and deliver for our clients.  We are attending client meetings and candidate interviews via video conference and working in a flexible, pragmatic and agile way.
We established Lygon at the start of the 2008 financial recession and our resilience through the global financial crisis was the foundation on which our reputation as an entrepreneurial, client-focused consultancy was built.  We have gone on to build long-term partnerships with our clients as a trusted adviser.
We are well placed to continue to support you as you navigate these current challenges. Please let us know if you have any questions or would like to speak to any of us.
