Wealth Management & Private Banking
Mark Somers, who founded the executive search boutique Somers Partnership in 2005 with his wife, ex-banker Jo, provides Spear’s with an expert analysis of the financial services sector, in which employees fall into three types: ‘rainmakers’ at the top of the chain, ‘lawnmowers’ forming the 80 per cent majority, and destructive ‘well poisoners’ making up the final 10 per cent.
Somers himself is a ‘rainmaker’. Sponsored by Goldman Sachs to attend their 10KSB entrepreneurs’ business course at UCL, he has written a book on family office recruitment. ‘We have become the market leaders internationally in recruitment, and one of the most-networked organisations across the wealth management sector,’ he says.
