Who is Marshall McAdam?

We like to imagine him as a spirited Scotsman striding determinedly through the Scottish Highlands. To us, Marshall McAdam is a representation of the bold spirit of our founders and their goal to prove that there is a better way to run a recruitment firm.

In truth, Marshall McAdam is an amalgamation of two names from the family of one of our founders, Hamish Sinclair. Hamish was the driving force behind Marshall McAdam and he encouraged Ben Cass to join him on the journey to create the business in 2009.

The fact that our name doesn’t refer to our founders is representative of their intent to found a company based on talented, like-minded recruiters. Since the early days, they have been succeeding in their goal to create a recruitment company that was personal and focused on reputation rather than transactional and based on sales.
