Today marks the launch of DPSM Consultants, a new specialist executive search company working exclusively within the EMEA golf industry and focused on senior appointments across the resort, club, equipment and machinery, manufacturing, apparel and golf travel sectors.
Headed by Douglas Philip, a well-known recruitment specialist in golf, DPSM Consultants will focus on delivering a discrete, highly professional and personal service, specifically recruiting for senior management positions.
Philip, who spent five years as a senior consultant at Colt Mackenzie McNair managing assignments across the EMEA region, commented: “My passion is headhunting, but headhunting backed by superior levels of customer service.
“DPSM Consultants will not be a volume business, we will take on fewer searches than our competitors, but spend greater levels of time researching the best candidates. Our sole aim is to pinpoint the finest executive talent for our clients, and to offer them a five-star, confidential service.”
To build on service levels to clients, DPSM is adding specialist expertise to its Advisory Board, which will cover niche areas within the industry.
Turfgrass, an agronomy consultancy based in Dublin, Ireland, is the first organisation to join DPSM in an advisory capacity, and will assist throughout the search process for Course Superintendents and Managers.
“Turfgrass are enthusiastic about this exciting new synergy with DPSM. It is an innovative area in its infancy, and we are looking forward to working closely with DPSM to provide agronomic technical expertise,” said John Clarkin, Managing Director, Turfgrass.
“Turfgrass is a siginificant, first Advisory Board partner,” added Philip. “John Clarkin and his team are extremely well thought of in the agronomy world, and have an excellent track record. With their technical expertise and our strength in research, I believe we will have a unique ability to provide a successful and thorough service to the agronomy sector.”
