I first started working with Allen Lane in the spring of 2008 when we were recruiting a Director level finance person. They weren't one of our senior finance suppliers at that stage but, due to their sheer accuracy and professionalism, they now are. Lester Fernando is excellent and I would heartily recommend him and Allen Lane.

I was given the details of David Godfrey some time ago by a colleague who managed to secure a new position through Allen Lane. My colleague stated that Allen Lane was the only agency they would use and that they actually put forward viable positions.
